Following the Orlando tragedy, an Anonymous hacker hijacked the Twitter accounts of ISIS supporters and flooded their profiles with pro-LGBT messaging and explicit gay porn.

A hacker going by the moniker “WauchulaGhost” tweeted several pictures of the hijacked accounts which appear to be owned by Islamic State extremists who have previously used their pages to promote extremist ideologies and to share images of mutilated bodies, according to the Newsweek.

“I did it for the lives lost in Orlando,” the hacker told Newsweek, in reference to Sunday's attack which took the lives of 49 people.  WauchulaGhost said the ISIS supporters had been praising the tragedy and he said his cyberattacks were not to offend Muslims and that his actions were directed at Jihadist extremists.

He claims to have compromised more than 200 Twitter accounts and said he plans to continue the campaign with other hackers.
