Mariah Carey's Twitter account hacked, hackers tweet about Eminem’s 'size'
The superstar responded to the attack with a joke – “I take a freaking nap and this happens?”
Singer Mariah Carey’s Twitter account was hacked on New Year’s Eve. Dozens of offensive messages were posted, many containing racist and crude remarks.
The tweets included comments about rapper Eminem, with one disparaging the size of his penis.
Eminem once claimed that he and Carey had slept together, which she denies.
Carey responded to the hack by tweeting a joke: “I take a freaking nap and this happens?”
The hacked tweets, which used numerous handles and identities, were removed after about 20 minutes. Some mentioned the “Chuckling Squad”, the hacker collective that was responsible for hacking Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account, as well as other celebrities.
According to USA Today, Twitter is looking into the security breach.
Carey, for real this time, wished her 21.4 million followers a happy new year on Jan 1 with a clip of her kids and herself enjoying a fireworks display.
The singer just made history by becoming the first artiste to have four Billboard No 1 hits in four consecutive decades. She achieved the feat after her 1994 festive hit All I Want For Christmas Is You climbed to the top spot in December, where it currently remains in the chart dated Jan 4.
