The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

A hacker af­fil­i­ated with the loosely or­ga­nized col­lec­tive Anony­mous is tak­ing over the Twit­ter ac­counts of Is­lamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) sup­port­ers and plas­ter­ing them with rain­bow im­ages and other proLGBT mes­sages.

The hacker, who goes by the han­dle Wauchula Ghost, launched the cam­paign in sup­port of the vic­tims of the Sun­day mass shoot­ing at the gay club Pulse, in Or­lando. The at­tack, which killed 49 and wounded dozens of oth­ers, has been cel­e­brated by ISIS-af­fil­i­ated sup­port­ers on Twit­ter.

Wauchula Ghost has hacked into more than 250 ISIS ac­counts over the past month, he told CNN Money, orig­i­nally post­ing ex­plicit porno­graphic im­ages “to hu­mil­i­ate them.”
