The New York Post has been hacked, the news outlet shared on Thursday after bogus tweets were shared on Twitter; “we are currently investigating the cause,” the Post said. The fake tweets were inflammatory and targeted Democrat lawmakers.

“We’ve since taken down the vile and reprehensible content posted, and continue to investigate the cause,” a spokeswoman for the Post said in an emailed statement.

From The Wall Street Journal:

Tweets that appeared to come from the Post included fake quotes with crude language from New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin and Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas. Some of the quotes were directed at New York Democrats, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Gov. Kathy Hochul.

Fake articles also appeared on the Post’s website. The company has removed the tweets and web content.
