The X account of Donald Trump Jr. was hacked with a series of bizarre posts on Wednesday morning, including ones alleging his father had died and cursing at President Joe Biden.
“I’m sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away,” one of the now-deleted posts said. “I will be running for president in 2024.”
Another now-deleted post said, “This just in: North Korea is about to get smoked.”
“Some interesting messages with Jeffrey Epstein,” another now-deleted post said, alleging Donald Trump Jr. had spoken to Epstein, more than four years after his death.
Several users took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the bizarre posts.
