Westboro Baptist Church Facebook Page Hijacked By Anonymous
The Westboro Baptist Church is once again in the spotlight for their actions. After the horrific bombing at the Boston Marathon, the Westboro Baptist Church stated that ‘…God allowed the city of Boston to be attacked because Massachusetts was the first state in the US to legalize same-sex marriage..’ As a result the Westboro Baptist Church will be picketing the funeral services scheduled for the victims of the bombing.
Westboro Baptist Church stated:
“The federal government is classifying the bombs as a terrorist attack, but say it’s unclear if it’s of a domestic or foreign nature, Here’s a hint — GOD SENT THE BOMBS! How many more terrifying ways will you have the LORD injure and kill your fellow countrymen because you insist on nation-dooming filthy ___ marriage?!”
However, after the Westboro “Baptist Church” said it would picket the funerals of those killed at the Boston Marathon (and blamed same-sex marriage for the attacks), the hacker group Anonymous “brandjacked” their FB page, with epic results:
This was how Anonymous announced they took control of the Facebook Brand Page:
Once it was discovered that Anonymous had ‘brandjacked’ the Westboro Baptist Church’s Facebook page this is what commenters had to say:
As of right now, the Westboro Baptist Church brand Facebook page is still under the control of Anonymous. Where it has grown my thousands of new members in only a few short hours.
