Disneyland's Facebook and Instagram hacked, spammed with racist posts
Disneyland's Facebook and Instagram accounts were hacked early Thursday morning and smeared with offensive, racist posts, prompting the theme park to release a statement.
A spokesperson from Disneyland Resort said the park's Facebook and Instagram accounts were compromised early this morning.
The company removed the content and secured its accounts, the statement read. Calling the posts reprehensible, the spokesperson said security teams are conducting an investigation.
The posts seemed to play on COVID-19's origin in China, which has led to a rise in hate crimes against Asian people since the pandemic began.
