Jessica Alba’s Twitter account hacked to post offensive tweets

Someone hacked the Twitter account of actress and businesswoman Jessica Alba to post bigoted, racist, and homophobic tweets this past Sunday.

The attacks came as a surprise for fans since Alba barely tweets anyway with her last tweet being about dinner with her husband and friends on July 20.

The hacker also included a tweet calling for the release of Florida-based rapper YNW Melly who recently turned himself in, believing that this would prove his innocence over the capital murder charges he is facing.

Several fans pointed out the hack with comments such as “Someone hacked #JessicaAlba account,” a fan tweeted with another tweeting  Alba “did not carry the entire Fantastic Four franchise on her back” just to get hacked in her sleep.

Alba has yet to make an official statement on the incident but the tweets have since been deleted, although screenshots are circulating the internet revealing troll-like tweets using racial epithets, Nazi-sympathizing tweets, homophobic remarks, and overall offensive comments.
