Hacktivist group Anonymous has taken over the official Ku Klux Klan Twitter account, and threatened to leak the details of those behind it.
Anonymous says they believe in the Klan's right to free speech, but that members in Ferguson are taking it too far.
The group began their operation KKK campaign after a local KKK group distributed leaflets in Ferguson, Missouri threatening to take lethal force against any protesters.
"We will use lethal force as provided under Missouri Law to defend ourselves," the local KKK group wrote in a flier they are circulating in Ferguson. "You have been warned by the Ku Klux Klan!"
The National Guard has been deployed in that city to quash any uprising that might occur after a ruling on the killing of an unarmed black teen by police.
The demonstration of the hacker group's strength happened late Monday. Anonymous mocked the hate group by tweeting a cheesy unicorn pic, complete with a rainbow sunset, to the Klan’s feed. The KKK website was also offline late Monday.
KKK leaders were not impressed.
"Sounds to me like a bunch of kids in their mom's basement whacking off," Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona of the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK told the Daily News earlier Monday.
