The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), who gained fame for picketing the funerals of American soldiers, is at it again, making a public announcement that they plan to picket the funerals of the Boston Marathon victims.
The WBC recently distributed a flier claiming that God was responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing because Massachusetts was the first State to legalize same-sex marriage.

But hacker group Anonymous took issue with the announcement and hacked the groups Facebook page, rewriting Bio information and filling its wall with anti-WBC posts.
The hacktivist group issued a warning via Twitter, telling the WBC that if they tried anything in Boston, they would feel the full fury of the online community.
This isn’t the first time Anonymous has launched an attack against the WBC.
Anonymous launched a full-fledged attack on the WBC after the group threatened to picket the funerals of the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting victims, by posting WBC members personal information online, overtaking the group’s website and hacking the Twitter account of one of the WBC’s representatives.
