The hacker-activist group Anonymous hacked into dozens of Twitter accounts of pro-Islamic State militants, decorating them with gay pride symbols, pro-LGBT slogans and links to gay pornography in response to the deadly attack in Orlando’s Pulse nightclub which killed 50 people and left 53 others wounded.

It’s been an incredibly tough week for the LGBT community after the horrific mass murder. It is the deadliest mass shooting in the modern history of U.S.

While the rest of the world mourned the vile attacks, ISIS celebrated.

U.S. claims, the gunman, Omar Mateen, a New York-born Florida resident and U.S. citizen, who was the son of Afghan immigrants, was inspired by ISIS.

A hacker, who goes by the name WauchulaGhost, draped some accounts with the rainbow flag and messages like "I’m Gay and I’m Proud." The hacker vigilante claims to have taken over 200 Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS supporters in retaliation for the group’s public praise of the mass shooting at the gay nightclub.

WauchulaGhost has been hacking pro-ISIS accounts since at least March 2016, but possibly earlier. Around June 7, WauchulaGhost account was posting pornography-related images and slogans such as "I love porn" and Anonymous to pro-ISIS accounts. Anonymous also frequently tweets the pro-ISIS accounts' IP addresses, which included users in Turkey, the United Kingdom, Iraq, Jordan, Oman and elsewhere.

In a post on June 12, the hacker said twitter had deleted the accounts after they were altered by him.
The pro-ISIS accounts that were hacked were all renamed "Jacked by a Ghost" and most linked to CIA.gov.

The militant organisation’s homophobia is well documented – it’s outlawed, punishable by death, and there are grim videos of ISIS members publically executing LGBT people.

It’s not going to bring down the caliphate, but it is funny as hell.


So in a small, moral victory the Anonymous gave them a wonderfully gay makeover.
