CNN says "Anime nerds trying to Google bomb ISIS". Apparently CNN doesn't know the word otaku.

More to the point, when does Rule 34 kick in?

This idea is silly as hell, and I bet 4-chan is behind it.

1 "Apparently CNN doesn't know the word otaku."

Their viewers don't, either, so I guess we'll have to accept "nerds".

(See, SJWs?  Acceptance of reality.  That's how it's done.)

I also wonder how long ISIS-chan's creator's request of "no gore, no porn" will stand against the might of Rule 34...

2 If Ebola-chan didn't get the site shut down, it's pretty likely nothing will.

3 Mikeski, where did you read that about the creator?

4 It's mentioned in your CNN article (though it just says "the group"). The ANN article says the same thing (in different words), with a pointer to their twitter page.

The one on ANN says it's actually members of the group "Anonymous", where CNN just calls them "activists [who] wished to remain anonymous". Not sure which is true, since the twitter bit is in Japanese.
