The Julian Assange: Why We Love and Hate Him infographic explains the complicated relationship of the public’s feelings towards the infamous WikiLeaks founder. On one hand, he is endlessly dedicated to opening government and allowing everyone to have access to crucial information.

On the other, he is a renowned hypocrite (as cited in the infographic) and is running from sexual assault speculation. As a result, it becomes a confusing situation between what he has done and what he has allegedly done. Scorned by the British and U.S governments (among others—he has quite the history of rubbing authorities the wrong way), he has become somewhat of a hero to the digital information crowd.

The Julian Assange: Why We Love and Hate Him infographic ends on a lighter note with a tip to Google on his dancing abilities.
