Did Elliot Rodger really kill cause he was a misogynist? Feminists fallacies… 

The incident came to a head after Mahbod Moghadam proceeded to post a series of bizarre annotations alongside extracts from Elliot Rodger’s manifesto including one that speculates that Rodger’s sister must be ‘smokin hot’.

After the accusations, he was lambasted as being misogynistic, and would soon be let go from the company he helped found.

Wrote Rap Genius co-founder and CEO Tom Lehman in a statement: Mahbod Moghadam, one of my co-founders, annotated the piece with annotations that not only didn’t attempt to enhance anyone’s understanding of the text, but went beyond that into gleeful insensitivity and misogyny.’

Lehman would add that Mahbod Moghadam’s notations were ‘contrary to everything we’re trying to accomplish at Rap Genius’ and that Moghadam had resigned.

Nevertheless sources told Recode that he had actually been fired after pressue from investors.

Since the horrendous murders over the weekend, Elliot Rodger’s manifesto which he had sent to a bevy of individuals prior to the onset of his rampage has become synonymous with hatred with women, as it documents the 22 year old’s disillusion with women, feelings of inadequacy and his subsequent quest to kill them all because he could not have them.

Inexplicably Mahbod Moghadam in a number of posts would praise Elliot Rodger for his ‘beautiful’ writing along with joking about his sister. An obvious out of bounds territory for an individual who commands the public domain that he until recently held.

Contemplates gawkerMoghadam is illustrating perfectly the limitations of Rap Genius: wanting to annotate the world is fine, but the site has yet to prove it can add anything substantive to the wider conversation.

Rap Genius is a website dedicated to the annotation and interpretation of lyrics, poetry and other forms of text.

Ilan Zechory, another Rap Genius co-founder, took issue with his colleague’s comments, saying they had embarrassed the website.

In an email to Business Insider, he said: ‘Mahbod’s annotations… are inconsiderate, uninteresting, and insensitive. It was horrible judgment to annotate in the way that Mahbod did.

‘Thankfully the Rap Genius community is much more than one person and when people put up stuff like this, it gets edited quickly. It’s obviously embarrassing that it comes from a rap genius founder.’

Moghadam later gave a statement to Valleywag’s Nitasha Tiku, which read: ‘I was fascinated by the fact that a text was associated with such a heartbreaking crime, especially since Elliot is talking about my neighborhood growing up.

‘I got carried away with making the annotations and making any comment about his sister was in horrible taste.

‘Thankfully the rap genius community edits out my poor judgement, I am very sorry for writing it.’
