Megan Piper Porn Star: Anonymous Hackers Launch ‘Operation Lulz Prom’ In Response To School Ban

It looks like Anonymous loves porn stars as much as they hate the Pope, but will #OpLulzProm make a difference?

The online leaderless collective of hacktivists and geeks known as Anonymous has taken up a new cause, sex workers right. Specifically, the group has taken issue with the decision by a Minnesota high-school's decision to ban Megan Piper, porn star, from attending Prom night as a guest after she accepted an invitation from 18-year old student Mike Stone on the condition that he pay her air fare. Anonymous has yet to take any action against the school, which they accuse of demonizing sex workers.

Based on their previous cyber-protests, the operation will likely involve targeting the website(s) of the school with a proxy DDoS attack to knock them temporarily offline. They may also attempt to hack the sites and deface them with a message in support of Megan Piper in the form of a video or text. The cause has been taken up on Twitter with the hashtag #OpLulzProm used to link all the corresponding Tweets together.

The most important messages have also been posted together at anonymissexpress.com to provide a summary of the formation of this particular operation so that interested Anonymous members can dive right in and participate. Some Twitter messages link to the homepage of School District 622 where Mike Stone is a student, as well as the login page for what appears to be the school's Infinite Campus account used by teachers and administrators, suggesting that these two pages may be Anonymous's primary target. Another Twitter message with the #OpLulzProm hashtag linked to a photograph of Patty Phillips, the superintendent District 622 who announced the school's decision to ban Piper from prom.

This prom date will not be allowed to attend the Tartan prom as her attendance would be prohibited under Tartan's standard prom procedures and would be inconsistent with two school district policies, Patty Phillips said in a statement.

The school's official policy is to allow all prom guests unless the visit is not in the best interest of students, employees or the school district.

Stone was called to the principal's office on Tuesday after a local online community board manager ratted him out to school administrators.

He was saying that it's not a good thing to do that, the high school senior told The Daily Dot. I said, 'I was just doing it to see what actually happened.' He said I'm not in trouble but said I should get out of that stuff. He told me not to get into any more drama like this.

Mike Stone has not given up hope, however, and is still trying to raise the necessary funds to pay for Piper's plane ticket, according a message he posted on Twitter. If Anonymous succeeds in Operation Lulz Prom, Stone's perseverance might just pay off.
