Over the weekend, Jessica Alba’s name became trending on social media for an unusual reason.
She slept through the hijacking of her account by anonymous trolls, who posted heinous comments on her behalf.
Jessica’s account, which typically contains nothing but links to her Instagram page, posted a series of racially-charged tweets to her nine million followers between midnight and 1 AM PT.
One comment read: “Ugh, police sirens in the distance again. When will n*****s stop committing crimes so I can get some fucking sleep?”
And, in a bizarre tweet to President Donald Trump, Alba’s account also demanded the release of rapper YMW Melly, who is currently incarcerated and awaiting trial for a double homicide.
The Fantastic Four star and her team apparently regained control of the page within an hour and deleted the comments.
Alba’s fans were flooding Jessica’s mentions in the hopes that she woke up in time to figure out this mess.
