Anonymous Takes Down Westboro Baptist Church Website During Live Interview

Say what you will about Anonymous, but it's hard to deny that the group has a flair for the dramatic. Yesterday, the collective ambushed one of the Westboro Baptist Church's websites, during a live joint interview on 'The David Pakman Show' of a WBC member and an Anonymous member. Throughout the segment, a member of Anonymous went back and forth with an incomprehensibly annoying church representative before finally deciding to bombard the site in mid-interview. "Despite having had the capability to hack your sites previously, we chose not to and instead responded maturely to your threats, but you have not respected this," reads a message plastered across the site.

Anonymous's announcement comes at about the 8:30 mark.
