The owner of 8chan, the hate-filled message board that hosted rants from multiple mass shooters in the last 12 months, is suing the man who founded the site for cyber libel over tweets suggesting he was "senile."

Jim Watkins, who took control of 8chan in 2015, issued the lawsuit against Fredrick Brennan last year as the pair were entangled in a feud over the future of the anonymous forum.

On Thursday, a court in the Philippines issued a warrant for Brennan's arrest.
