The 'Hate Tweets to Frank Ocean' website is a project launched by 5 Swedes, with the leaders being Martin Löfqvist and Jacob Åström to retaliate against homophobic hate.

This week, Frank Ocean exploded on the social scene. He came out in a beautifully written Tumblr post and released his album, Channel Orange. Unfortunately, for his openness he is receiving despicable amounts of hate on Twitter. This Frank-supporting website was built in just a day, hoping to harness the same social media tool to fight fire with fire. Showing hate-filled tweets from 10 odd Twitter users, anybody can use the website platform to tweet back "It's not who you love – it's *that* you love that truly matters." The result is that these disrespectful people receive a spammed feed of tweets, condemning their words.

Frank is no doubt in a state of pandemonium right now -- with an accelerated mainstream debut, he does not need such negative input from onlookers and could use the words of kindness from 'Hate Tweets to Frank Ocean.' Stats for Homophobia Slandering Sites Trending: Older & Average
