Anonymous Just Made ISIS Accounts Fabulously Gay – Hacker Fills Twitter Accounts Of Terrorists With Photos, Rainbow Flags, And Gay Porn

A member of the hacktivist group Anonymous has successfully hacked into multiple Twitter accounts of the terror group ISIS and filled them with tons of gay content including the symbolic rainbow-colored flag, digitally manipulated photos, and gay porn.

After the barbaric Orlando nightclub shooting, the ISIS has been openly celebrating the death of people who belong to the LGBT community. While the world was grieving the death of 49 people, they have mocked the shocking incident and called on their comrades to carry out more such vicious attacks on other locations that offer a safe haven to the LGBT community.

Outraged by the sadistic display of victory, a Twitter user, who goes by the alias Wauchula Ghost (@WauchulaGhost), has launched a digital attack on the terror group’s social media accounts. Speaking to Newsweek, the hacker said,

“I felt compelled to act after Omar Mateen went on the rampage, killing 49 people at Pulse nightclub in what appears to be a homophobic attack. I did it for the lost lives in Orlando. Daesh [Islamic State, IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] 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.”

The hacktivist belongs to the group called Anonymous, who have begun waging digital wars against numerous agencies they believe have committed crimes against humanity.

ISIS regularly posts about its appalling crimes against humanity on its Twitter handles and Facebook profiles. While the platforms do occasionally take action against such profiles, more often than not, the ISIS operatives open up another account and continue unabashed. While there’s no official count, experts believe ISIS now has hundreds of such accounts operational.

While Anonymous has been working overtime to take down the ISIS accounts, Wauchula Ghost came up with a very novel idea of humiliating the terror network by posting content the group finds absolutely disgusting. The hacker has been actively “defacing” hundreds of Twitter accounts that allegedly belong to the ISIS, reported the Washington Post. He has been flooding them with content that’s typically associated with the LGBT community.

According to RT, Wauchula Ghost altered the Twitter accounts and decorated them with rainbow banners. The user names were changed to “Jacked by a Ghost,” which might be a calling card announcing the hack. Besides redecorating the accounts with gay content, he also began posting tweets that read, “I’m gay and proud!!” and “Out and Proud!”. Needless to say, these tweets were sent to thousands of followers of the accounts. He even inserted trending hastags like “#OrlandoWillNotBeForgotten,” and created some new interesting ones like #DaeshBags. As if that wasn’t enough to infuriate and humiliate the terror group, the hacker even added links to some pretty extreme adult websites.

Wauchula Ghost insists they were forced to act partly due to the inactivity and lethargy displayed by authorities, who they believe dragged their feet in effectively targeting IS sympathizers online.

“The government hasn’t really been doing enough especially on social media. You see the beheading images everywhere. Kids get online and shouldn’t see these images. My goal waking up in the morning and see messages from Daesh, telling me they’re going to kill me or cut my head off. The madder they get, the happier I get.”

Hacking any website, let alone a social media platform like Facebook or Twitter, is of course illegal. However, the Anonymous appears driven by the intense desire to prevent ISIS from using these platforms to spread their network of terror. Humiliating them could be part of a digital psychological warfare, just like blasting them with popular Bollywood music was.
