VeChain-Design-Team-Accidently-Posts-Porn-Link-in-Promotional-Image

Someone on the VeChain design team is in hot water today after the company accidentally tweeted a picture containing porn links.

You can view the tweet and the image here. Before this article went live, Sunny Lu removed the tweet and deleted the image. Here is what it said though:

You can click on it, but it no longer exists on twitter.

VeChain was announcing the beginning of its public testing phase. At first glance, the image seems innocent enough. VeChain appears to have used a stock photo of a businessman holding a handgun in one hand. That businessman’s torso is filled with random, Matrix-style designs.

If you zoom into the designs on the businessman’s torso, you’ll see a number of strange URLs, including random and meaningless URLs.

If you look really really closely, however, you’ll see a URL for “FreeGrannyVideos.com“. That website might sound innocent enough – but trust me, it’s a porn website. It contains exactly the type of porn you would expect from a website of that name.

In any case, the issue was spotted soon after VeChain CEO Sunny Lu posted the image online. The image is still up, and few people seem to have noticed the issue.

Credit for spotting the porn link goes to Kalle (@CryptoKalle), a Twitter account with five followers. Kalle posted a link to an Imgur page where he zooms into the porn link. You can view the Imgur page here.

Kalle has posted a number of follow-up tweets trying to turn this minor incident into an issue. He posted a meme saying “FreeGrannyVideos.com ICO Confirmed – Powered by VeChain”, for example. Kalle’s account has previously been dedicated to promoting various ICOs and cryptocurrencies.

In any case, nobody should really care about this incident. It’s a funny event – but a complete non-issue. Move along, people.
