Psychic Kay Edit

Psychic Kay is a Blog Talk Radio host who was harassed by BWC in 2012. [16]

A: Most people of heard of Ghost, from True Capitalist Radio (if not, lurk more). Some time in the middle of his broadcasting career, he took a week-long hiatus. In this time, the caller known as EquestrianCitizen978 created a Steam group (along with Jeffers, Capercom, EnixSquared, and a few others) known as the Blog Talk Pirates, who would fill in the void of trolling by looking for other BTR hosts. Eventually, the group stumbled upon Psychic Kay, and they have been calling in and trolling her for about a year and a half now. BTP has changed its named from Blog Talk Pirates, to Equestria Sector Zero, to Blog Talk Crusaders, and it is now called "Everfree Bandits".

Later, a group comprised of True Capitalist Army members created a group called the "Kay Gallagher Brigade", or KGB for short. The KGB has been calling since as early as march, and has also conducted other raids in Kay's name to draw negative attention to her. The Kay Gallagher Brigade is currently the major group raiding Kay, and those who call kay will be raiding her show alongside them.

Telephone threats Edit

In 2012, a caller from a phone number in Minnesota began threatening and harassing apparently random people. An anonymous reporter claimed that the caller was from the BWC. [17]
