CNN – On a day it had previously set aside for trolling ISIS, hacktivist collective Anonymous spared some time to launch an attack on the website for Donald Trump’s trademark New York City skyscraper.
There is evidence the group has been targeting the site since at least Wednesday, when it posted a YouTube video warning against Trump’s plan to halt the immigration of Muslims into the U.S.
“This policy is going to have a huge impact,” says a man in a Guy Fawkes mask through a voice scrambler. “This is what ISIS wants. The more Muslims feel sad, the more ISIS feels they can recruit them…You have been warned, Mr. Donald Trump.”
That afternoon on Twitter, a user called @FibsFreitag posted a screengrab of what appeared to be an attempt to take down the Trump Tower site.
It read, “trumptowerny.com nearly down. we need more laz0rs! #DDoS #OpTrump #OpFire.”
