ISIS Threaten Beheading Against Anti-Jihadi Gay Porn Hacker

A hacker who planted porn and gay images on over 250 ISIS Twitter accounts has described how they threatened him with beheading as payback.

Known only as 'WauchulaGhost', the anti-jihadist began targeting accounts over a year ago because he believed somebody had to 'stand up' to the extremist group.

Following the Orlando gay nightclub shooting he decided to replace pro-ISIS imagery on their profiles with pro-LGBT messages and links to gay porn.

Talking to CNN, he revealed how his online activities have led him to receive death threats.

He 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."

The hacker says it takes him just 60 second to crack an account and boasted that ISIS supporters usually have the computer skills of a child.

He previously described how much the Orlando attack, in which a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack inside a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, affected him.

"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," he said.

"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."

ISIS has been using social media platforms such as Twitter as a tool for spreading propaganda and for recruitment.

Twitter has taken action and shut down more than 125,000 twitter accounts promoting extremism - resulting in death threats against the site's co-founder, Jack Dorsey, as well as Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg.
