Homophobic Pastor’s Website Hacked During Gay Pride Parade

A Brazilian hacker going with the handle of ProtoWave, broke into the official website of Brazilian pastor Marco Feliciano, on Sunday afternoon (7th June), and left several messages against homophobia.

Feliciano is known for conservative stance and contrary to LGBT unions and same sex marriages.

The hacking of Pastor’s webpage took place on the same day when 19th LGBT Pride Parade was taking place in São Paulo, Brazil.

Hacker left a deface page along with a message on the hacked pastor’s website with a rainbow flag, symbol of the LGBT struggle. An image of a black Jesus was also placed holding the head of Feliciano in one hand and the a perfume of Apothecary brand in other. The Apothecary perfume brand was recently involved in controversy on social media for producing advertising campaign defending the union between same-sex couples.
