Hackers have taken to Islamic State supporters’ Twitter accounts to replace pro-ISIS imagery and messages, such as this profile, which now states: “I’m gay and proud.”After the horrific attack in Orlando, a hacker has taken matters into his own hands. The vigilante hacker known as WauchulaGhost claims to have taken over 200 Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS supporters.

Via 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 content replaced with gay pride messages and 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.”
