The business and technology magazine Fast Company said Tuesday night that its Apple News account had been hacked and that the perpetrators had used it blast subscribers with racist notifications.
“Fast Company’s Apple News account was hacked on Tuesday evening. Two obscene and racist push notifications were sent about a minute apart. The messages are vile and not in line with the content and ethos of Fast Company,” the publication’s official Twitter account read.
The message concluded saying Fast Company’s website had been shut down and Apple account suspended “until we are certain the situation has been resolved.”
Twitter was quickly flooded with screenshots of a vandalized Fast Company article whose headline had been altered to include the n-word and other profanity.
“THRAX WAS HERE,” the end of the headline went.
This is a developing story.
