John McAfee Bought Hookers, Weed, and Porn With Cryptocurrency, So “Hate Well,” Suckers

It's just another day in the life of the eccentric computer entrepreneur.

Cyber security guru and certifiably eccentric computer ingenue John McAfee is back to his offbeat ways. Remember, it was only five years ago that police chased the 72-year-old through the jungles of Central America to question him about the death of his neighbor. McAfee claimed that authorities in Belize were out to kill him, to which the prime minister clapped back by calling him “extremely paranoid, even bonkers.” The successful entrepreneur’s home would burn down somewhat mysteriously shortly thereafter.

Anyway, perhaps it comes as no surprise that on Monday, McAfee displayed precisely zero chill when he baited his haters by tweeting about using cryptocurrency to pay for sex and drugs. "So much hubbub about my admission to paying hookers with Crypto. If you want more reason to hate I will also admit to buying weed and other illegal drugs, porn, and nearly every other questionable priduct [sic] or service that you can imagine—all with Crypto when possible. Hate well," he wrote. Hate well! McAfee’s tweet came just hours after he announced his advisory role at another cryptocurrency, ICO.

It’s worth noting that McAfee was previously arrested for possession of a firearm while intoxicated and for driving under the influence. Casual. The social non-conformist also met his wife, Janice Dyson, 35, when he hired her as a prostitute five years ago, allegedly saving her from life as a sex trafficking victim.
