Hackers replace Thai court’s homepage with ‘Guillotine’ song

A day after the Constitutional Court ruled pro-democracy activists are seeking to overthrow the government and monarchy, hackers changed its website to read “kangaroo court.”

That’s not all. Its homepage also has a YouTube link to American experimental hip-hop group Death Grips’ Guillotine. The song, originally released 10 years ago, features frontman MC Ride angrily rapping while riding in a car, with the visuals increasingly corrupted by white noise.

The site had not been restored as of 1:10pm on Thursday. Until they figure out how to fix it, enjoy.

Yesterday, the Constitutional Court ruled that three prominent leaders of pro-democracy protests – Arnon Nampa, Panusaya “Rung” Sithijirawattanakul and Panupong “Mike” Jadnok – violated a constitutional provision forbidding attempts to overthrow the king-led government by giving speeches calling for the monarchy to be reformed at two events in August 2020.
