Hackers attack Tame Impala, Bon Iver, Tenacious D’s Twitter accounts

on June 05, 2016, 7:25pm

Twitter accounts belonging to Tame Impala, Bon Iver, Tenacious D, and other prominent musicians were hacked Sunday.

After hijacking Tenacious D’s Twitter feed, hackers falsely reported the death of band member/actor Jack Black. Bomb threats were made via Tame Impala’s Twitter, while Bon Iver’s account tweeted out disparaging remarks about the recently passed Muhammad Ali. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards also saw his Twitter account hacked.

Access to the hacked accounts has since been restored and the disparaging tweets deleted, but you can read some screenshots below.
