Actors Cole and Dylan Sprouse have become the latest celebrities to fall under hackers on twitter.
Former child star Dylan raised concern among fans on Monday (17Jun19) as a racial slur popped up on his timeline, while the unauthorised user went on to encourage devotees to follow a series of other microblogging accounts, which have since been suspended.
Sprouse, who is in Japan with his girlfriend, model Barbara Palvin, managed to regain control of his profile an hour after the now-deleted suspicious tweets were posted, and he wasted no time in issuing an apology to fans.
His twin brother, Riverdale star Cole, also appeared to have been targetted by cyber criminals as similar posts promoting the now-suspended accounts were also advertised on his page, while the hackers sent out an inappropriate comment about his girlfriend Lili Reinhart, too. All tweets have been removed since.
Cole Sprouse still hasn't commented on his social media security breach, which took place a day after actress Bella Thorne posted a series of topless shots of herself in response to an attempt to blackmail her over the images, which had reportedly been stolen from her account by a hacker days earlier.
