There has not been a longer statement explaining how the post violated GoDaddy's terms of service in a manner which The Daily Stormer's regular content - which included directing anti-Semitic abuse at Luciana Berger MP - did not.
If that wasn't enough for the beleaguered website - which prides itself for being the "world's most genocidal Republican website"- hacktivist group Anonymous claimed to have hacked it. Heyer is the woman who was killed when a auto plowed into a crowd demonstrating against white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.
Some Twitter users, including women's rights campaigner Amy Siskind, called on the web hosting company GoDaddy, which houses the Daily Stormer, to remove the site.
Web hosting provider GoDaddy has withdrwan services to a far right website which published an article criticising a woman who died during protests in the U.S. this weekend. "Given this latest article comes on the immediate heels of a violent act, we believe this type of article could incite additional violence, which violates our terms of service". So, apparently, "Anonymous" announced they would shut down the website permanently after 24 hours.
"This site is now under the control of Anonymous". Nineteen other people were injured and James Alex Fields has since been charged with second degree murder.
Anonymous said that a large team from around the world had united to breach the systems and firewall of the Daily Stormer website. We have also gathered locational data on Anglin [Andrew Anglin, site editor] himself and are sending out allies in Lagos to pay him a visit in person.
In what seems to be more than just a coincidence, Gersh, like Heyer, is Jewish.
