The much-debated CISPA bill has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives despite warnings from the White House.

Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a controversial bill that would allow intelligence agencies to collect personal data about Americans from private companies. Currently, it doesn’t contain any provisions pertaining to cybercrimes which means it cannot be passed yet since it compromises internet privacy. The White House threatened to veto the CISPA bill since it contains major privacy loopholes and want amendments that would ensure minimum amount of data is handed over during investigations.

The approval of the controversial bill comes just days after when the gun control bill was blocked by the Senate despite the fact that more than 80% Americans and Obama himself supported it.

People are furious and have taken to Twitter to express their disapproval towards the CISPA bill:
