The New York Post smartphone app was hacked, causing it to send out messages including "Heil President Donald Trump" as push notifications Saturday night.
Other notifications included vaguely religious-sounding threats ("Hear me now, for I speak as an angel in the words of God") and excerpts of the Nirvana song "Come As You Are" ("Take your time, hurry up, the choice is yours, but don't be late.")
The newspaper, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, apologized for the hack early Sunday morning.
The push alert system for our mobile app was compromised this evening. Please accept our apologies.— New York Post (@nypost) April 2, 2017
Here's NYP's apology.
Trump has cited a Post opinion piece as evidence that the media is dishonest about him.
It's far from the only hack of a New York paper. A New York Times Twitter account tweeted about a nonexistent Russian missile launch after a hack in January. In August, the FBI said Russian hackers targeted Times reporters.
