Both of the Twitter accounts were reportedly “hacked” and sent out dozens tweets that included support President Donald Trump and reporting that rapper Tyler the Creator was killed when his tour bus crashed. The string of tweets from both accounts is now deleted and it appears ABC once again has control over its Twitter accounts.
It’s not immediately known who is responsible for the hack, but ABC’s PR Twitter account posted a tweet shortly around 9 a.m. EST that said the issue has been resolved.
But, as the it works, nothing is officially deleted from the web. The tweets were screenshotted by some Twitter users.
Here’s some more of the tweets that were sent out in the morning by ABC and GMA:

The fast-food corporation acknowledged that its account “was compromised” and deleted the tweet. It said that they were investigating the matter.
