Anonymous Hacks Top White Supremacist Website

Heyer was killed when James Alex Fields Jr., 20, plowed his auto through a crowd of people in a narrow street in Charlottesville, injuring a further 20 people.

The site, which openly promoted itself as a low-brow publication for neo-Nazis, wrote often about "the Jewish problem" and "the race war".

Shortly after GoDaddy notified Daily Stormer that it had 24 hours to find a new home, a notice appeared on the site stating that Anonymous had hacked into it.

A message on the Daily Stormer this morning suggested the site may have also been targeted by global hacking collective Anonymous over its comments about Heyer.

Daily Stormer remained online Monday evening, after the founder alleged that hackers had briefly taken down the site.

Web hosting giant, GoDaddy, has given a white supremacist site 24 hours to find somewhere else to host their publication.

The post appeared on the website of the Daily Stormer, founded and edited by pro-Trump activist Andrew Anglin, who had earlier posted an article criticizing Heather Heyer who was killed during a far-right march in Charlottesville during the weekend. The post was titled "Heather Heyer: Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Slut".

The official Anonymous Twitter account has not confirmed the hacking, however, leading to speculation that it may be a publicity stunt by the Daily Stormer. GoDaddy doesn't, however, host The Daily Stormer's content.

Neo-nazi news site the Daily Stormerhas been given 24 hours to move its domain to a new host after its current provider, GoDaddy, said it would cut off support.

By Monday afternoon, Stormer had registered its domain with Google.

"Any shares of the Daily Stormer article that don't include a caption will be deleted", Facebook was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Cloudflare, a private company that also provides internet services to The Daily Stormer, declined to say if it was looking at joining GoDaddy and Google to sever ties.

At time of writing The Daily Stormer can not be accessed.
