FBI arrested man for allegedly sending seizure-causing GIF to reporter
20 March 2017, 2:50 pm



A man accused of sending an animated GIF of a strobe light to a reporter with epilepsy was arrested and charged with criminal cyberstalking with the intent to kill or cause bodily harm.

Back on December 15, 2016, Twitter user @jew_goldstein tweeted a flashing image to Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald along with the message: “YOU DESERVE A SEIZURE FOR YOUR POSTS.” Eichenwald, who has epilepsy, immediately suffered a seizure.

After his wife found him on the floor and called 911, she replied to @jew_goldstein, telling him that the tweet caused a seizure. “I have your information and have called the police to report the assault.”

On Friday, the FBI arrested 29-year-old John Rivello at his home in Maryland.
