(Reddit) (Newser) – Michael Brutsch, aka notoriously controversial Reddit user Violentacrez, was worried about his job when Gawker revealed his true identity last week—and for good reason, it turns out. "I got fired Saturday morning, by phone," Brutsch wrote on Reddit in a post noticed by Daily Dot. In the comment thread that followed, Brutsch admitted, "I really have no one to blame but myself," though he did add that he has a problem "with the lies, innuendos, distortions, and half-truths" in the Gawker article, which he went on to explain in more detail.
