BBC Trending: The Battle Between Anonymous and The KKK

The hacker group Anonymous said it would unmask members of the KKK – but did their operation live up to the hype?

The hackers group Anonymous released the names of hundreds of people they say are members of the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan. It comes after a public relations campaign by Anonymous conducted mostly on social media. But what happens when hackers get it wrong? BBC Trending speaks to a woman who got caught up in the online war who says she was falsely labelled as a KKK sympathiser.
