Has the site been hacked?
It's playing offensive music.

It seems like a hack, but the weird thing is, ANN has not made an official announcement of the hack on any kind of social media. Also according to a reddit user, they found "The domain registrar showed the status of the website as 'Pending transfer'". So it could be a long time before they are able to take everything back. I'd avoid ANN until you hear something from them from social media or something. In the end, it all sucks that ANN was hacked and we are all in a waiting game.

The Facebook page says they are experiencing technical difficulties. Which, yeah, could mean a hack.

ETA: Jacob Chapman's Twitter says something about a hack--although that seems to be specifically about Zac's Twitter account; I'm guessing it's not unrelated though.

They are back up at the temporary URL animenewsnetwork.cc, according to Justin Sevakis and Jacob Chapman on Twitter.

Yes. The ANN Twitter (@Anime) and Zac's Twitter have both been compromised. The DNS information has also been changed. The site does have a backup available linked above, but I am not logging in until some kind of statement is made saying if it is safe to do so, and what happened.

now a day if you are running a business that will provide products/service to the public, it's best not to pick side

It's pretty obvious why their website was hacked.

Sounds like it is coming out of his ass, but I wouldn't know because I do not frequent ANN.

ANN mods will participate in the discussion more frequent than the mods here at Crunchyroll. I don't know if you can still find these threads or not in their forums, but it was a thread about supporting the authors by buying NEW. Some users stated that they would rather rent/borrow/buy used instead of buying new due to their budget or being college students. The discussion turned into USED vs NEW and that was all it took. The mods was called and the whole drama started.

There's a saying " one man's trash is another man's treasure" -- so do check the comments section of their review articles for various anime movies/series. These guys can't take criticism well If they gave a series a good review and you think otherwise...

Mention the words " SJWs and feminists" in some threads like censorship in anime and they will edit your post and leave you a nice note in its place

Long story short, it's a place filled with easily triggered people and their house-sitters. Did you know that the mods there will also edit people's comments and put like "a troll's rant" or something similar in its place? They will harass or mock the people who don't have the same view as them pretty much.

It's best to experience it yourself. Just find some sensitive topics or comments and reply them and see. It's more clear when you don't have the same view as them.

These people were the ones who used fansubs from Crunchyroll website back then for their reviews while bashing fansubs as being illegal at the same time. Their morals and ethics are questionable imo.

ANN is showing up as "server not found" when I try to access it at the moment. Hmmm.
