The man himself, in 2014.

John McAfee is a whale fucking,[1][2][3] drugged out, crazy,[4] cybersecurity and technology businessman. He is most notable for creating the dreaded McAfee Security software; that is, bloatware that comes preinstalled on Windows computers (and some Android devices, too[5]), that returns a ton of false-positives, can't be removed and has full control over your computer, and reads all the data stored on it continuously in real time, but isn't a virus because it is an anti-virus. He also once ran for President as a Libertarian, but he lost very badly to Gary Johnson.[6]

Rape and murder allegations[edit]


Shady business[edit]


McAfee hates the IRS and hasn't filed a tax return since 2011.[7] He is quite wealthy through selling his antivirus software company McAfee Inc, and lately also due to his love of cryptocurrency promotion.

Crypto promotion[edit]

McAfee loves crypto, but what he really loves, is when he gets paid to love crypto, He charges $100,000 to send a single tweet endorsing an crypto initial coin offering.[8]

“John McAfee’s tweets are by far the most influential in the field of cryptocurrency,” the website says. “Few leaders in the Crypto community can come close to Mr. McAfee’s reach into the heart of the cryptocurrency investor community.”

A stock issue libertarian, McAfee supports a laissez-faire economic system, with all the positions that mentality contains. This includes support for "religious liberty", or the ability of businesses to discriminate based on their religious beliefs. On the other hand, he also supports the common libertarian positions of decriminalization of drug use, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and greater bulwarks against cyberwarfare. [9] He also supports abolishing the TSA, which... okay.


McAfee ran for President on the Libertarian Party ticket in 2016.[6] He lost the nomination to walking cloud of weed smoke former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson.

Whale fucking[edit]

Not a euphemism. God we all hope it's a big joke.
