The Herald reports:
When Islamic State took credit for the Orlando shooting tragedy, a hactivist from Anonymous felt he had to do something.
The hacker, @WauchulaGhost, broke into hundreds of IS supporters’ Twitter accounts and posted rainbow flags and pro-gay content from them.
He posted tweets from their accounts like “I’m gay and proud!!”, “Out and Proud!” and “#OrlandoWillNotBeForgotten”, including links to gay porn sites.
There was even a touch of softcore gay porn thrown in for good measure. Just a bit of shirtless kissing, smiling and rollin’ ’round the bedroom.
Y’know, the sort of thing that makes the terror group’s blood boil. …
The accounts have experienced a total revamp. One avatar reads ‘I’M GAY AND I’M PROUD’. Another says ‘I HEART PORN’. Another simply reads ‘LOVE NOT WAR’.
Speaking to Newsweek, the hacker, choosing to remain anonymous, said: “I did it for the lives lost in Orlando.
“Daesh (IS) have been spreading and praising the attack, so I thought I would defend those that were lost. The taking of innocent lives will not be tolerated.”
That’s a great response. Normally I’m against hacking, but I think most will agree it was well done in this case.
