The 36-year-old was the founder of the first ever revenge porn website, after launching IsAnyoneUp.com in 2010. The website allowed anyone to anonymously upload nude photos along with their social media handles, with Moore describing himself at the time as a "professional life ruiner" who encouraged people on the site to do "their worst" in the comments section under each photo.
The Netflix documentary follows Charlotte Laws, whose daughter was a victim of the website, and her quest to shut the whole thing down. As the official synopsis reads, "Determined to remove her daughter's photos from a revenge porn website, a persistent mother launches an online crusade to shut down its cruel founder.
"Featuring poignant, exclusive interviews with multiple women and men who fought to have their images taken down, plus law enforcement agents who worked the case and the crusaders who fought to take Moore down."
Now, Hunter has responded to The Most Hated Man On The Internet on Twitter, insisting '60% of the documentary is bulls***.'
He wrote, "A lot of you has been asking why didn’t I tell my side of the story on Netflix documentary, well at first we all had agreed about the terms and all but at the end they wouldn’t let me tell my side of the story, basically I had to say what they wanted me to say, so I back[ed] off.
"There is always two side of the stories, 60% of that Netflix documentary was BS, they never want you to tell or hear the truth."

In January 2014, four years after he launched the revenge porn site, the FBI arrested Moore on charges of conspiracy, unauthorised access to a protected computer and aggravated identity theft. He later pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated identity theft and aiding and abetting in the unauthorised access of a computer.
He was released from prison in May 2017, and one year later he went on to self-publish a tell-all book titled, Is Anyone Up?! The Story of Revenge Porn.
Netflix's The Most Hated Man on the Internet is available to stream now.
