Syrian Hackers Hijack E! Online’s Twitter, Tweet News Item Claiming Justin Bieber is Gay


The Syrian Electronic Army took responsibility for hacking E! Online's Twitter account on Saturday and tweeting out a series of items which included news that Justin Bieber had come out, Mashable reports.

"Exclusive: Justin Bieber to E!online: I'm a gay" said the first tweet followed by "Angelina Jolie admits, in E! latest issue, that Jordan is to blame for the Syrian refugees' atrocious conditions"

The group responsible for the hack is aligned with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and also took responsibility for hacking the AP last week, a hack which sent stock markets into a momentary plunge.
