‘F*ck Trident!’ Spoof posts sent from Jeremy Corbyn’s hacked Twitter account
One tweet mirrored Corbyn’s strong anti-nuclear weapons stance, though phrased in a manner rather more explicit than the Labour leader’s usual tone, suggesting that everyone “f*ck Trident.”
Another insulted the prime minister, calling David Cameron a “pie,” much to the glee of users across the globe.
While online for only a few minutes, the tweets were quickly picked up by Corbyn’s 380,000 followers, retweeted and screenshotted for posterity.
The nationality of the hacker has been widely speculated, with a number of users suggesting the phrasing of the Cameron tweet was characteristic of the Scottish vernacular, while others claimed the fourth tweet used an Australian slang term.
A Corbyn spokesman declined to comment on the tweets.
