Paul Krugman, an economics columnist for The New York Times claims that someone gained control of his Internet connection and used it to download child porn.

Krugman, the New York Times columnist and economics professor at the City University of New York, claims that his computer’s IP address has been “compromised” and is being used to download child pornography.

“Well, I’m on the phone with my computer security service, and as I understand it someone compromised my IP address and is using it to download child pornography,” wrote Krugman.

It is not known what “computer security service” may offer phone support, and Krugman has not stated what services he uses.

“I might just be a random target,” added Krugman, before implicating the Qanon theory.

“But this could be an attempt to Qanon me.”

He concluded, “It’s an ugly world out there.”

In a followup tweet, Krugman added “The Times is now on the case.”

Twitter users were quick to question Krugman’s story, and began posting replies to his tweet mocking the economist’s explanation.

President Donald Trump’s son, Don Jr., also seemed to express doubt on Twitter, quoting the tweet with thumbs up and winking emojis.

This is not the first time a New York Times employee has offered a strange explanation for being involved with the downloading or viewing of child pornography.

In 2007, former New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald claimed to watch hours of child pornography as journalistic research focused at saving child the victim in a series of videos.

10 years later, Eichenwald would also offer a strange explanation for why he was viewing tentacle pornography. The journalist explained that he and his children were explaining its existence to his wife, who doubted that people pleasured themselves to animated images of tentacle infused sex.

It is not known why both Eichenwald and his children knew of the existence of tentacle porn.
