Leave it to Anonymous to come up with one of the better responses to the tragic mass shooting in Orlando. Just a day after saying they were done with tormenting the Islamic State, hackers linked to Anonymous unleashed a wave of hilarious infiltration onto social media sites associated with the terror group.

One hacker going by the name WauchulaGhost tells Newsweek they’ve hacked an estimated 200 pro-ISIS accounts. The U.S. based individual said, “shit is getting too close to home,” when asked to describe their response to the Orlando shooting. “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.”

In a separate interview with Softpedia, WauchulaGhost said the porn hacking is about more than just laughs, explaining that the effort helps to shame pro-ISIS accounts by exposing their vulnerabilities and raising their profiles so that Twitter administrators can delete the accounts.

But it’s also a small gift to the rest of us to see that in the wake of an unbelievable tragedy, one person is using the power of hacking to both fight extremism and make us laugh.
