New York Post ‘Hacked’ in Tweets Calling for Assassination of Biden, Lawmakers


The rogue tweets were removed late Thursday morning.

“The New York Post has been hacked. We are currently investigating the cause,” a message on the tabloid’s account said.

“The New York Post’s investigation indicates that the unauthorized conduct was committed by an employee,” the Post said in a statement to AFP, adding that the worker in question had been fired.

The tweets, published Thursday morning, included a call for the assassination of Biden, along with a demand to kill New York lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
