Regardless, Jeff Bezos probably never saw the hackers attempt at humor. These days he is focusing on Blue Origin, his space exploration company. And he is busy suing NASA. 

Twitch hackers heckle Bezos

On Tuesday someone on 4Chan posted a torrent link. It directed to over 125 gigabytes of source code. And all the API documentation, internal tools, and more were all readily available for everyone to use. The leaked data also included payout amounts for the most successful Twitch streamers.

The data fell into hackers’ hands. And the code allowed the hackers to use Twitch’s inner workings to exploit the frontend logic for fun. 

Images of Bezos appeared in searches for GTA V, Apex Legends, Minecraft, Smite, Overwatch, Dota 2, Dead by Daylight, Final Fantasy XIV, and several other games. The hackers replaced some background game images with very unflattering photos of the Amazon founder. And were making fun of the richest man on earth.
