Disneyland’s Social Media Accounts Hacked with Racist, Offensive Posts

A self-identified “super hacker” published a series of racist and offensive posts on Disneyland Resort’s official Instagram and Facebook accounts early on July 7.

Around 3 a.m. Pacific Time, the hacker, who identified himself as David Do, made four posts, including selfies and memes, that contained racist and homophobic slurs.

In one post, the hacker said that they were “here to bring revenge.”

“I am f— tired of all these n— Disney employees mocking me for having a small penis. Who’s the tough guy now, Jerome?” the hacker wrote in one caption, according to screenshots by The Disney Blog.

In subsequent posts, the hacker claimed to have “invented” COVID-19 and threatened to “release” a new “COVID-20” virus.

By 5 a.m., the posts have been taken down.

A Disneyland spokesperson confirmed in a statement that their social media accounts were “compromised.”

“We worked quickly to remove the reprehensible content, secure our accounts, and our security teams are conducting an investigation,” the spokesperson said.

The Anaheim, California-based resort has over 8.4 million followers on its Instagram account while its Facebook page has 17.2 million likes. Both accounts regularly upload photos of the park and of its guests, including families and young children.
