The Facebook fan page of a children's theme park located in Hampshire, England was hacked and littered with controversial comments.

Peppa Pig World's fan page, a theme park based on a popular kid's TV show, was compromised by a miscreant who posted obscene messages that included sexual and racist references.

According to a spokeswoman for the theme park, the fan page was hacked on Monday and the administrators of the page did not have the ability to remove the content because the hacker contacted Facebook to claim he was authorized to manage it and “removed the ability for us to access the fan page.”

The park's Facebook page has 137,500 likes, but is currently inaccessible.
