Internet fame often comes with hate and harassment

Copy (2) of Troll Hunter 2
Fewer than two weeks after posting the video that would make him famous, and less than one week after appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Josh Holz experienced the latest milestone in the viral-fame cycle: The 15-year-old was hacked on Twitter.

His account, @joshholzz — the original site of the “Damn Daniel” meme — began tweeting out racist memes Feb. 27. At some point after that, screenshots show, someone changed the account’s header to read “Meme Team” and the listed name to “XTM.” At some point, the hackers also deleted the original “Damn Daniel” video, a sin about which they apparently feel no regret.
