Jessica Alba Twitter hack: Homophobic and racist abuse shared on actor’s account
Jessica Alba’s Twitter account was hijacked with a series of hate-filled messages.
The actor’s account was hacked in the early hours of Sunday (July 28) morning, with screenshots showing a string of homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic and ableist slurs.
Among the most shocking were messages accusing “handicap f*****s” of masterminding the 9/11 attacks, and claiming that “Nazi Germany did nothing wrong.”
The tweets were posted shortly after midnight and were deleted several hours later.
Fortunately, fans saw immediately through the vile messages and even managed to find a funny side.

Many were surprised that the hackers targeted Alba, whose Twitter account is mostly filled with posts about her Honest beauty products and pictures of her day-to-day life.
Others were simply disappointed that the hackers didn’t use their powers for good.

Jessica Alba quit church over homophobia
Alba, who rose to fame with the TV series Dark Angel, has been vocal about her support for the LGBT+ community in the past.
In 2014, she revealed that she distanced herself from the Christian faith aged 16, after falling in love with a drag queen.
“He was bisexual and a ballerina,” she told The Daily Beast.
“We used to go to this gay club and I’d dance with him all night, four nights a week.
“I was so in love with him and thought, ‘There’s no way this guy’s going to hell,’ because in my church, it was, ‘Anybody who’s gay is going to hell’ and ‘Premarital sex is evil.
“I thought,’There’s no chance! This guy is amazing!”'”
