The FoxNews Twitter account was has hacked on Monday, with an anonymous prankster announcing the death of the President on the July 4.
The hacker released several false tweets with the account, first stating that the president had died, then detailing further that he’d received two gun shot wounds while in a restaurant in Iowa, and finally wishing Joe Biden the best of luck as the new president.
FoxNews were quick to dismiss the claims saying “Those reports are incorrect, of course, and the President is spending the July 4 holiday with his family.” They went on to say “The Hacking is being investigated, and FoxNews.com regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.”
It was the latest incident in a series of high-profile global wave of hackings over the past few weeks.
