Swizz Beatz Was Never The CEO Of MegaUpload?
The last few days have been cray for the internet. On Wednesday, we found out through the NYPost that Swizz Beatz was the CEO of MegaUpload. At the same time websites all over blacked out in protest of the now defunct SOPA/PIPA. A day after that, MegaUpload was shut down by the FBI. Today, MegaUpload’s lawyers tell VentureBeat that Swizz Beatz was never the CEO of the company, and that he only played a minor role in the company. They say Swizz was negotiating to become the CEO, but he never actually became the CEO. Which lines up, because Swizz Beatz was not mentioned anywhere in the 72 page indictment by the FBI. But yesterday Swizz’ publicist confirmed to BetaBeat that Swizz Beatz was in fact the CEO of the company. So I guess we’re back to where we started. Is Swizz Beatz really the CEO of MegaUpload.com? Stay tuned, as this story keeps getting more interesting by the day.
