4chan is at It Again With Their Trolling of iPhone Users

Another year, another small iPhone update touted as "revolutionary" and "life-changing." Pssshhh. 4chan knows better than that. Time to "cook" up another scheme to reel in another "wave" of gullible iPhone users.

The normally horrible folks over at 4Chan have actually done something pretty awesome.

While ISIS is busy trying to terrorize the whole world, 4Chan users thought it might be time to bring the group down a couple notches and treat them like what they really are—ridiculous idiots.

What better way to mock an organization that sees itself as super tough? Turn them into cute little rubber duckies.

Emma You Are Next, A website purporting to leak private photos of Emma Watson has now been found out to be a coordinated hoax to get 4chan shut down. Yesterday internet sleuths discovered who was really behind the website so the countdown timer was pushed to today.

Now when you visit the website you are greeted with:
The trick began after Emma Watson's powerful U.N. speech where she discussed feminism and her "HeForShe" campaign.

Also, it is a really bad idea to provoke 4chan, just saying.

On the heels of Miley Cyrus' pregnancy rumor that made the rounds earlier this week, a group of 4chan pranksters are now out to spread yet another vicious rumor that the controversial pop idol has contracted HIV.

Add this to the list of reasons why you should never believe anything you read on the Internets. In a carefully planned scheme to sabotage many early iOS7 adopters, a group of pranksters on 4chan decided to get creative with a series of fake (yet convincing) Apple-esque ads claiming that the latest OS software update will make iPhones waterproof (which is false, of course) along with a fake Facebook post from Apple CEO Tim Cook. It's not something that everyone would fall for, but apparently a few people on Twitter have accidentally destroyed their phones while testing its waterproof feature.

A new polling scheme is on the rise over at 4chan to make North Korea's third-generation dictator Kim Jung Un the "People's Choice" in TIME Magazine's Person of the Year. As of 2 p.m. (ET) today, Kim Jung Un is trailing Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy as the second ranked candidate in the poll. Back in 2009, 4chan pranksters staged an upset by voting the website cofounder Christopher Poole (a.k.a Moot) as the World's Most Influential Person.

If you go to Rick Santorum's official website, you might find a picture of 4chan founder Christopher Pool (a.k.a Moot) sandwiched in between two photographs of the former Republican presidential candidate. First spotted by a Redditor, the image was soon confirmed as authentic by a spokesperson for the web design firm National Builder, who revealed that the site was designed by a contractor at the political consulting firm Brabender Cox. ... could this have been a clever web designer's intentional ploy to make the website go "viral"?

First: Anonymous 4Chan trolls posted a fake screenshot of a tweet by verified "Entertainment Tonight" that "confirmed" Justin Bieber had leukemia. Tweets from Kanye, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown seemed to support the news.

Then: Beliebers began posting pics and vids of themselves with their heads shaved in a global show of support hashtagged #BaldForBieber.

Miraculously: The rumors were false and the Biebs is just fine, and now supposedly, a bunch of tweens have no hair.
