Profile pictures of the hacked accounts have been changed to images with slogans, “I'm Gay and I’m Proud,” the report said.

“I did it for the lives lost in Orlando. Daesh [Islamic State] 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,” Newsweek quoted the hacker who is known online as WauchulaGhost.

Additionally, the hacker claims to have taken over 200 Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS supporters and  plans to continue the campaign with two other hackers who go by the name Ebony and Yeti.

“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,” WauchulaGhost told Newsweek.
