Owner of 8chan Calls Website 'Peacefully Assembled Group of People'

The owner of online forum 8chan defended his company in a YouTube video against the Internet-services provider that effectively took it offline and against attempts to silence platforms of speech. Jim Watkins, an internet entrepreneur who took control of 8chan in 2015, said the forum has been helping law enforcement with its investigation into a mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart store that left 22 people dead and more than 20 injured.
