Queer Hackers Rule!

27 June 2016

Last week 100s of Twitter accounts associated with ISIS were attacked by LGBTI hackers celebrating gay pride and gay porn.

One of the hackers going by the name of ‘Jacked by a Ghost’ has stepped up his/her efforts to block and embarrass ISIS operatives online, filling many Twitter accounts with rainbow colours and hot homo love.

Twitter has now suspended many of the hacked accounts, and another hacker who spoke to USA Today says his renewed rainbow attacks on ISIS accounts came after the Orlando shootings.

“This has to do with the lives that were lost. They didn’t deserve to die. Everyone has the right to live,” he said, adding that the colourful imagery used in his attacks was designed to “brighten peoples’ day on a sad day.”

The hacker added in a statement: “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.”

Members of international hacker group, Anonymous, have also recently targeted the Westboro Baptist Church, the Church of Scientology, and Donald Trump.
