    Just saw this trending on Reddit homepage (#2). HERE In the reddit comment's you'll find a lengthy thread, at times, regarding domain names. I'm still reading it, and will look more into the domain later. (I assume it's TerryCrews.com).

    From what I can tell, the thread derived from the below tweets.

    Terry Crews responded, alleging the guy he paid is squatting on it for $1,000,000.

    Terry Crews (known to some as Cheeseburger Eddie) can be seen below.



    Mods -- not sure if this belongs in the legal section, or elsewhere. Posted in the legal section because of Crews' response to somebody suggesting he should sue the person he paid to create it.

    When I went to the URL, it showed a HostGator.com landing page. It appears it was a payment issue at HG.

    A redditer regged Terry Crews full name in .ws, and offered to transfer (or build out) the domain to (for) Mr. Crews.

    How can you b so fantastic that you let an independent contractor reggae your business's domain under their own account and host it in their hosting account too? I mean it was basically theirs and not Terry crews'.

    That's like if you hire a contractor to build your home but have him buy the property under his name and everything.

    People need to start treating Internet property like real property -- that's why bitcoin won't ever be adopted by mainstream people

    TL;DR: Terry Crews hosting account bill was due, resulting in the site coming offline. It appears he is still battling to gain control of the domain from his web dev...

    However, a few hours later at 3:24 PM Terry Crews tweets...
