"We will allow the site to remain online for 24 fours so the world can witness the hate", it said, adding that "we have taken this site in the name of Heather Heyer a victim of white supremacist terrorism". The article described Heyer as "fat and a drain on society". Who would have thought.
GoDaddy spokesman, Dan Race, told The Washington Post in an email that The Daily Stormer's post about Heyer was in direct violation of their terms of service.
"Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness, "The Daily Stormer's founder Andrew Anglin wrote".

Following the violence which occurred during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, which left one person dead and 19 injured following a vehicle attack, the Daily Stormer went on the offensive with a post mocking the deceased victim by using sexist and obscene language. GoDaddy tweeted its announcement ousting The Daily Stormer in response to Siskind's post.
To justify its decision, Google is citing potential incitement to violence, which constitutes a violation of its terms of service.
Anglin blamed Anonymous for the outage and posted copy of a threat from the group, calling them a "united force of elite hackers".
However, the main Twitter feed for Anonymous has said it has no confirmation that the hacker group is involved. "Wonder if they are having issues finding a new host".
Nonetheless, the leading Anonymous Twitter account denounced the hijack, claiming no Anonymous member had officially taken credit, and The Daily Stormer might have been behind its own hack. We have reached out to the Daily Stormer and will update this post if we hear back.
