Hackers Add Rainbows, Gay Pride Slogans to ISIS Accounts

By Elizabeth Weise, USATODAY
The Anonymous hacker collective has launched a campaign to add rainbow flags and gay pride slogans to Islamic State Twitter accounts in response to the Orlando gay dance club attack that left 49 dead. The hackers take over Twitter accounts of those espousing support for the Islamic State, then add rainbow flags, signs proclaiming “I’m Gay and I’m Proud” and other gay-positive imagery. One of the hackers behind the effort says he’s been getting both death threats and kudos since the campaign began on Sunday. [link]
