LulzSec, the hacking group that hacked into PBS’s website and posted a fake Tupac Shakur story among other antics, broke up this weekend, the Washington Post reported.

An unnamed LulzSec member reportedly told the Associated Press that the group isn’t breaking up because of “pressure from the FBI or enemy hackers” but because both the group and the press are tired of LulzSec.

“The press are getting bored of us, and we’re getting bored of us,” the member reportedly said.
