Aside from hating non-Muslims, the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) extremist terrorist group also hates a lot of other things – including homosexuals.
Knowing this, a hacker who goes by the handle, WauchalaGhost, decided to troll extremists’ Twitter accounts with gay photos. He’s definitely having lots of laughs over the matter; although he also received plenty of death threats.
It all started in June last year when Omar Mateen went into a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 people and injuring 53 others after he open fired in the crowded hangout. Angered by this homophobic violence, WauchalaGhost vowed that he would fill ISIS accounts with gay photos and videos.
The hacker revealed that he was able to take over more than 200 ISIS Twitter accounts, trolling them with gay pride images, some of which were too intense to post here.
The hacker told CNN:
I get beheading images… death threats. ‘We’re going to kill you’ and that’s good because if they are focusing on me they are not doing anything else.
We started to take over their accounts with porn and gay pride images basically just to troll them. We thought that putting the naked images would offend them.
If the social media people like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram would stand up and do something it would help. Sometimes you have to stand up and make a change for the good.
A lot of netizens have applauded WauchalaGhost’s move, telling him to continue with what he is doing; however, there were those who were concerned that the hacking could further anger the ISIS and make them target more civilians.
Just to clear things up, the hacker added:
One thing I do want to say is we aren’t using graphic porn and our purpose is not to offend Muslims.
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.
He’s really putting a whole new meaning to the saying “Make love, not war.”
