The 50 Most Outrageous Wikipedia Hacks

12. Eminem is the Voice of Spongebob Squarepants

Compromised Page: Spongebob SquarePants, cartoon character
Year: 2008

If you were to read the Wikipedia page for SpongeBob SquarePants back in October of 2008, you would have seen a lot of nonsense. First there were the multiple mentions of the cartoon character being a homosexual, even though creator Stephen Hillenberg denied it in 2002 saying that SpongeBob is asexual. Why people are discussing a cartoon sponge's sexuality is far beyond us, but we digress. The Pineapple-dwelling children's star has been at the center of controversy for years, so seeing those homophobic quips weren't surprising. What was surprising was the edit that had Slim Shady as the voice behind SpongeBob.
