The Florida Joker Has Threatened To Free A GTA 6 Hacker


They have increased their compensation demands to $10 million

The infamous Florida Joker, who appears to be parodied in the GTA 6 trailer, is threatening to “break out” the 18-year-old hacker who gained infamy of their own by leaking in-development videos of the upcoming crime game in their latest attempt to get Rockstar’s attention.

 Fans have been blown away by how realistic GTA VI looks since Rockstar Games released the first trailer. Not only are the graphics cutting-edge, but real-life Floridians have remarked on how accurate the fictional portrayal of Florida is.

Some, however, have taken offense to the trailer, such as Lawrence Sullivan, who has been hounding Rockstar Games for a payout ever since. The trailer depicted a man with similar face tattoos and dyed hair to Sullivan’s mugshot, which propelled him to internet fame for his joker-like appearance. Sullivan initially demanded $1-2 million for the use of his likeness, but this figure has risen rapidly in recent weeks.


So far, his threats have gotten him nowhere, and while Rockstar has remained silent on the matter, the internet has not, with even Arthur Morgan’s actor joining in on the fun.

Unfortunately, he’s now taking things a step further by threatening to free the infamous GTA VI hacker if Rockstar doesn’t cave to his demands.

Sullivan told his many followers, “My birthday is January 11, if you do not contract me three days after my birthday, I want $10 million. $10 million for my suffering and pain, defamation of a character … You ain’t gonna put me in no psych ward. Keep playing with me – I’ll go break that kid out of the psych ward right now, show you the real Joker. We gonna hack your system again.”

Aside from the Florida Joker, it should be an exciting year for GTA 6 fans. We’ll have to wait until 2025 for a complete console release, a PC release has yet to be mentioned.

Obviously, Sullivan has no leverage behind any of these threats, however openly announcing your intention to commit a crime is usually not a prudent decision.
