Anonymous Leaks Awful Video of High School Athletes Joking About Teen Rape Accuser

Posted on Jan 2, 2013
Screenshot from video

The hacktivist collective Anonymous released a disturbing 12-minute video Wednesday that features athletes from Steubenville High School in Ohio making fun of a 16-year-old girl who was allegedly kidnapped and raped by two of the school’s star football players in August. And yes, the video is as sick and disgusting as it sounds.

Deadspin has some choice quotes:

He’s puttin’ a wang in the butthole, dude.

They peed on her. That’s how you know she’s dead, because someone pissed on her.

They raped her harder than that cop raped Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction.

They raped her quicker than Mike Tyson raped that one girl.

They raped her more than the Duke lacrosse team.

Former Truthdigger of the Week @KYAnonmous, who tweeted out the horrifying video, says the primary person on camera is Michael Nodianos.

More from KyAnonymous:

Michael Nodianos has lied his way out of trouble, the cell phones into the river of the night in question, but here is some archived media from the night of the rape in which he discusses how the victim was attacked, how drunk she was, how she was at jake howarths and mark coles, and some names involved. for more please see and the hashtag #oprollredroll #knightsec

The two football players accused of raping the teen—Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond—were arrested in August and are awaiting trial. Neither was allowed to play on the football team this past season.

However, according to Deadspin, “the school’s head football coach, Reno Saccoccia—who testified as a character witness on behalf of Mays and Richmond—decided not to discipline any of the other players who testified to witnessing the assault until there were only two games left in the season.”

You can watch the video of the high schoolers making fun of the alleged victim below (but be warned, the content is hard to stomach):
