It was run by an imposter. One who has no doubt done horrendous damage since there's already a huge amount of doubting the stories of WOC, GBLT people and muslims when it doesn't suit people to believe them.
Turns out he was a straight, white, married American living in Scotland. He's also an over-privileged arsehole and that's all I'll say on him - he's already getting more attention than he deserves and it was likely to reason he pulled this stunt in the first place.
