An iFunny moderator told me one of the more haunting things I’ve ever heard. Within hours of the Christchurch attack, a user on the app had built a simulation of the shooting in Minecraft.

UPDATE: The 40-person ArmyOfChrist server Olsen started appears to be down. Keep in mind, though, that it was active for at least 10 days after his arrest. Interestingly, the FBI affidavit includes screenshots from Discord but doesn't specifically mention Discord by name.
RT @katienotopoulos: sladkfjlkasjdflksdf
When I wrote last week that any website can turn into 8chan, that’s what I meant. It’s bigger than one site now. It’s in every community, every group of young men. It’s too late to think that knocking down one website can destabilize this movement. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryanhatesthis/the-problem-isnt-8chan-its-americans
As for Olsen's iFunny account, it's as nihilistic and violent as you can imagine. He's obsessed with "Trad values" and fantasizes about a white Christian ethnostate. It looks like ifunny took his account down after I emailed them about why it was still up.
The Discord is full of every chan-adjacent trope you can guess. Hate speech, gun talk, white nationalist memes. They're even making fun of Olsen for being arrested.
Olsen's Discord server has about 40-50 users in it at the moment. I've reached out to Discord for comment.
I've never come across this complete of a radicalization trail before. Olsen was using his small following of around 5,000 subscribers on iFunny to advertise a Discord channel.
