Whinny City Pony Con cleared of Bomb Threat - UPDATES by


Whinny City Pony Con is returning to normal scheduled functions, following a bomb threat made against the convention this evening. The threat, we're told, came on a Periscope video stream of the concert, which caused the staff to close all convention spaces for the evening, until the threat was cleared.

According to Convention Co-chair Charlie Worthley, the threat was made by a twitter user named @slacka and a group referred to as "Supreme Lean Team".





"Going from the concert to the panel rooms, having to shut things down because of some pathetic lowlife's idea of a joke, was devastating." Charlie said in a tweet after the fact. "I'm so incredibly sorry to anyone that was upset by the way tonight ended. I feel awful that we had to do that."



The perpetrator shows no evident remorse for his crime, and has since retweeted the convention's shutdown announcements.




More on this as it develops.

Current theory of what led to this:





Update:
We tracked down his Skype, which he registered using the Microsoft Windows Live ID: LeakingLynx

    1. His buddies are reporting that he's currently under investigation by Law Enforcement. Him being charged is currently unknown though. We see "RazzaBlade" tweet saying "RIP my lil ni*** @slacka", which may hint to a visit from police? Good job with everything so far guys.

  2. A quick review of his twitter feed details a variety of low-brow internet shenanigans. Swat'ing, BitCoin theft, Script Kiddie bullshit, and other cretinous online behavior.

    March 17th's tweet seems to suggest that 'slacka' spoke to a con attendee/staffer/vendor and considered the conversation a challenge - then posted it to their twitter feed. Nothing evident to suggest that they did it themselves though.

  3. Think I got a lead on this one.

    Slacka on Mar 17 says "you can't swat my pony convention lol - harmlessbrony2k17" responding to an apparent provocation from a brony he crossed paths with

    Slacka's part of SupremeLeanTeam, so is another guy who goes by the name Razer. Feb 13 Razer posts on his Twitter the skype username for a brony he's been messing with:

    Google search shows this dude is known on Twitter as @raritymlp20:
    https://twitter.com/raritymlp20

    His twitter feed is filled with stuff about Whinny City con.

    The clencher, though, here's a tweet from March 13 from him:

    https://twitter.com/raritymlp20/status/841396243565797376
    "Apperently im gonna be swatted again for being a brony just like in 2012-2013 i also got called a pedophile getting cyber bullied here"

    That may be exactly what happened here. Brony gets trolled by this edgelord lulz group, says 'you'll never swat a pony con', starts hyping up the WCPC stream and boom swatted

  4. Got some more for you.

    This RarityMLP20 guy seems to run a YouTube channel that relays Periscope streams, which would normally be sketch af but is really fuckin convenient for this situation, because we can see names of people who pop up related to the swatting

    About 20 minutes before the shutdown, Slacka (under the username slackaslt) shows up and says "You bronies better watch out", "death to all bronies, bomb dropping soon" and "allahu akbar":

    Right before they shut the hotel down, someone named "Swatnetbotnet1" shows up:
    https://youtu.be/g7qbKn4iAko?t=5077

    Pretty obvious link really, this guy promotes the WCPC stream, they show up on there and start making threats and then go one step farther and try to swat an entire hotel.

  5. What a fucking piece of scum you have to be to make threats on a fucking low level my little pony convention?

  6. People are pledging actual real world money to the first person to give evidence leading to the perpetrator's arrest. Shit's getting real. Pledge pool is up to $300.

    1. So are actual efforts being made to find him or is money being thrown around? If a discord group has been made regarding the matter can you please send Capper General or another HN member the link? Thanks.

  7. I still lean towards the idea of not being too opinionated until the situation is over. At least basing what I see on Twitter.

  9. I was invited to speak on a panel, the first time I've ever been on a panel in my life, and it's fuckin shut down after a half hour because of this.

  10. I was a little reluctant to say anything about what happened until I saw Corey speak. As you may have seen on the Periscope, I was camera operator for the concert last night and was talking with the viewers when this guy came in. I relayed this information as I got it, keeping screenshots to show authorities later. This was not exactly how I wanted my night to go, nor was it how anyone's night wanted to go. It's stupid shit like this that ruins things for everyone. There was nothing to be gained. If you honestly find this kind of thing funny, you are sick. I really do hope this guy is found and spends a few years in jail

    1. I would go on a tangent and state how we like to shove conventions down others' throats ruins things for everyone as well...

    1. @slacka is the new profile he's using to horse it up (Though @slackacracka is still active). They are attempting to publicly shame @strumpetchan now.

      They're going to need a bigger boat.

  18. Speaking of cons, anyone else hear about ILKP canceling her appearance at EverfreeNW because they weren't going to give her the VA treatment? No joke, I hear she wanted them to comp all of her and her ppl's travel expenses. Just who the fuck does she think she is? Not only does this show she doesn't give a damn about her fans, only what she can mooch off the fandom, but it's a slap in the face to all the other panelist and staff doing the show for the sake of the community and get little to nothing in compensation.

  19. Slacka needs a punch in the face in a kick in the testicles, I hope he got arrested or ends up in an asylum/mental hospital.

  20. I thought anti-bronies who are actively seeking out to commit cybercrime to spew hatred on the fandom was a thing of the past, but no, it isn't; at least for this case.
