Actress Anna Kendrick became the latest victim of social media hacking as her official Twitter account was hacked for a brief period, and posted a series of offensive tweets.
On Saturday, starting around 5:26 p.m., a series of tweets were sent out to Kendrick’s over 7 million followers using offensive language and racial slurs, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
There were approximately thirty tweets from the official Twitter handle of Anna Kendrick.
Additionally, the website on the account was changed to “Thug.org”. The posts caught the attention of social media users, who started commenting that Anna Kendrick’s account was compromised. The Pitch Perfect actor’s Instagram account was unaffected.
After almost an hour, the tweets were deleted and the website on Kendrick‘s account reverted back to the page for her paperback book of personal essays, titled “Scrappy Little Nobody”.
Later, representative of Anna Kendrick confirmed that the account was hacked, and has now been secured.
Meanwhile, Anna earlier this year made a lot of noise over sharing her experience on the set of Twilight. The actress termed it as ‘horrible.’
In a conversation with Vanity Fair, Anna Kendrick said, “The first movie we filmed in Portland, Ore., and I just remember being so cold and miserable. And I just remember my Converse being completely soaked through and feeling like, ‘You know, this is a really great group of people and I’m sure that we would be friends at a different time, but I want to murder everyone.’”
