Cyber-activism group Anonymous hacked into hundreds of pro-ISIS Twitter accounts this morning and gave them the gay makeovers they needed.
ISIS has expressed violent, anti-LGBT doctrine in the past, publishing videos of public executions of gay people and expressing praise for the Orlando shooting this past weekend.
Now, their online presence has a bit more sparkle. A hacker named WauchalaGhost compromised several ISIS accounts and changed their photos to rainbow-inspired images. They also sent out tweets of love and support for those lost in the Orlando massacre. See below:
WauchulaGhost issued a statement with their hack:
I did it for the lives lost in Orlando.
Daesh [ISIS] 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.
Our actions are directed at Jihadist extremists. Many of our own [group of hackers] are Muslim and we respect all religions that do not take innocent lives.
