If you’ve ever had your social media accounts hacked, take some comfort that you are not alone. Disney star Selena Gomez had her Facebook and Twitter pages hacked on Wednesday, with the attacker posting a string of negative comments about fellow teen sensation Justin Beiber.
“Oh yeh, JUSTIN BIEBER SUCKS!!!!!!” read one tweet posted on Gomez’s hacked account. Later in the day, a hacker who goes by the screen name Pkinj0r-aka-Prokill posted a video on YouTube claiming responsibility for the attack.
Popeater.com reports that the attack lasted around 30 minutes before Gomez and her team were able to regain control of the sites. She apologized on both Facebook and Twitter, posting on Facebook:
“Sorry everyone. My Facebook Page and Twitter account has been hacked and we are cleaning it up.”
The 18-year-old Gomez has been romantically linked to the 16-year-old Beiber, which drove many of Beiber’s young female fans to despair. Some even sent death threats to Gomez via Twitter.
