The New York Post’s website was hacked on Thursday, the tabloid confirmed after a series of violent and racist headlines were posted.
One post shared on Twitter read: “We must assassinate AOC for America,” referring to Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Another headline from the website claimed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott would start “slaughtering illegals” on the southern border.
Other posts on the company’s website made violent and racist remarks directed at New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, linking the fake, vulgar headlines to GOP candidate for New York governor Lee Zeldin.
“The New York Post has been hacked. We are currently investigating the cause,” a representative for the Post told Insider.
Some Post staffers suspect the hack was done by a disgruntled employee because of access they got, one insider said.
