(Newsweek) Twitter accounts belonging to supporters of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) have been hacked in the wake of the Orlando shooting, with jihadist messages replaced with links to gay pornography. A hacker affiliated with the hacktivist collective Anonymous, who uses the online moniker WauchulaGhost, first began hijacking pro-ISIS Twitter accounts several months ago. Following the mass shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 13, the hacker decided to replace ISIS imagery posted to the accounts with rainbow flags and pro-LGBT messages. “I did it for the lives lost in Orlando,” the hacker tells Newsweek. “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.” WauchulaGhost does not disclose his real name or exact location, other than to say he is based in the United States and that “shit is getting too close to home.” The vigilante hacker claims to have taken over 200 Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS supporters. However, many have since been taken down by Twitter. WauchulaGhost plans to continue the campaign with two other hackers who go by the name Ebony and Yeti. Messages posted to the compromised accounts include “I’m gay and proud” and “Out and proud.” A link to a gay porn site is included in some of the hacked accounts, although no explicit images have been posted in respect to Islam. “One thing I do want to say is we aren’t using graphic porn and our purpose is not to offend Muslims,” WachulaGhost says. “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.”

 

 

 

 

 

You know how you have that friend who can’t take a little razzing? Of course you do, everyone does. That one kid who used to lose his fucking mind over some juvenile and, admittedly, not very funny, “I’m gay!!!” Facebook statues update in high school when he forgot to log out of the library computer? The kid who acts as if you spit on his grandfather’s grave and is willing to start a Hatfield and McCoys-type war simply because you made fun of his new shirt? They’d get so mad over pointless, easily laughed off pranks that you’d go out of your way just to fuck with them and watch them freak out.

 

Well, I have a sneaking suspicion that that’s exactly what every single radical Islamic is like. Call me crazy, but I’ve got a feeling about this one. I get a real strong, “this guy is not going to handle this funny thing well,” feeling from all of them.

 

And that’s why is so hysterical. Just picturing Gihad35 and fallujh go all Limp Bizkit “Break Stuff” music video on their pitiful little rat’s nests is a lovely way to start the day. Some people need a cup of coffee, others need a workout or some yoga, I need to imagine ISIS propagandists throwing their computers and swearing to Allah that they’re totally not gaga for guys. That’s what starts my day off right.

 

There’s also the chance that they’re such fucking morons that they take this as a sign from god and were stuck in a real existential crisis for a minute there, and that’s perfectly OK with me too.
