The FBI is on the hunt for hackers who shutdown Nik Richie‘s website The Dirty … and the reality star tells us he’s hemorrhaging money.
The Dirty has been down for weeks after a team of hackers began hitting the site with a DDoS attack — which basically floods a server with so many requests it shuts down.
Nik tells us he contacted FBI investigators and they’re on the case.
Richie says he’s lost $250-300K this month alone in Super Bowl ads he couldn’t deliver. He’s also losing out because of cancelled appearances because he promotes them on his site.
Nik is blunt … “These hackers are hypocrites. My website promotes free speech. F****** losers.”
