Someone appears to have hacked Donald Trump Jr.’s Twitter account Wednesday morning,

The social media account posted that Trump Jr.’s father, former President Donald Trump, had passed way, which is untrue.

“I’m sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024,” the account posted.

The account published a series of posts at 8:25 a.m., including an insult of President Joe Biden and a false announcement of an attack on North Korea. The account also claimed to have “some interesting messages with Jeffrey Epstein” and that “Richard Heart is innocent.” (RELATED: Joe Biden Reportedly Wonders If He Will Die Before Hunter Biden Case Gets Resolved)

“Fuck @JoeBiden,” a post pinned on Donald Trump Jr.’s profile reads.

Trump called his opponents “savage animals” and “people that are sick” when asked whether he fears assassination in an interview with Tucker Carlson that was released Aug. 23 on Twitter.

Hacking is not a rare occurrence on Twitter. Hackers posted stolen email addresses and other sensitive data from over 200 million Twitter users to an underground forum in a breach first discovered on Dec. 24, 2022.
