CBS News has reported that The New York Post app was hacked on April Fools’ Day, sending out a series of push alert notifications that included “Heil President Donald Trump.” The Post apologized Saturday night, shortly after its app sent out the alerts.
The newspaper said in a follow-up alert, “Our push alert notification system was compromised this evening. We are working to resolve the issue. Please accept our apologies.” The messages appeared to be directed at Mr. Trump. One message said, “Open your heart to those you do not understand and listen to all those you fear and look down upon.”
The alerts included lyrics from Nirvana’s song “Come As You Are” and they also mentioned God and salvation, saying, “I speak as an angel in the words of God.” The New York Post is owned by Trump-friendly media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
