+ - Mountain Dew "Dub the Dew" promo pulled due to hacking and internet shenanigans->

Submitted by rullywowr
rullywowr (1831632) writes "Time reports that Mountain Dew's latest promotional stunt to name the new granny apple flavored drink was shut down due to hackers and people suggesting obscene names. Some of the top-voted names by users were the likes of “Hitler did nothing wrong,” “Diabeetus,” and “Gushing Granny" to name a few. In addition, the article mentions the site was hacked with an unwanted banner which said, “Mtn Dew salutes the Israeli Mossad for demolishing 3 towers on 9/11!” as well as some "unwanted RickRolling." The real question is if the security measures not implemented completely or perhaps the masterminds behind the promotion were just unprepared for the brutality of uncensored internet?"
