Disneyland Resort’s Instagram and Facebook internet pages had been hacked early Thursday with a series of posts that bundled foul language and racist slurs.
A Disneyland spokesperson confirmed that the accounts “were compromised early this morning.” The posts have been taken off.
“We worked speedily to take out the reprehensible articles, protected our accounts, and our stability teams are conducting an investigation,” the spokesperson reported in a assertion.
4 posts appeared on the Instagram account all over 4:30 a.m. regional time, with a single caption indicating a “super hacker” was using revenge on the park, the Los Angeles Instances claimed.
Posts from the hack utilised racist and homophobic slurs, and just one referred to the “release” of another strain of Covid-19, according to the Instances.
NBC News was unable to validate screenshots circulating on the net of what appeared to be the hacked posts. The Disneyland spokesperson did not comment on no matter if the screenshots were being genuine.
The Instagram account for the park, in Anaheim, California, has 8.4 million followers. It regularly posts pics from points of interest at the park and photos of attendees, like households and younger kids.
