DONALD Trump Jr has spoken out online after a disturbing hacker attack that led to fake death posts and other shocking statements.
Trump Jr., 45, teased on social media Friday that the hack was allegedly linked to Hunter Biden.
“I’M BACK… Hunter Biden must have hacked my account!!!,” former President Trump’s son wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
The hacker made a series of posts on Trump Jr.’s page within minutes on Wednesday.
Most notable was one that claimed his father had died and he was now running for president in 2024.
“I am sad to announce that my father Donald Trump has passed away,” it said.
“I will run for president in 2024.”
Other posts from the alleged hacker mentioned North Korea and noted that the country was “about to be targeted.”
Trump Jr.’s page also addressed several prominent figures, including President Joe Biden and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The statement about President Biden included a racial slur and the mention of Musk read, “My dad owns your @elonmusk butt.”
After the hacker’s first post on Trump Jr.’s account, in which he noted a false claim about former President Trump’s death, several community notes followed.

Most users at the time were almost immediately certain that the person behind the posts was not Trump Jr.
“You need to be hacked,” someone remarked.
The term “hacked” was even trending on X during the period on Wednesday.
All posts were quickly removed around 9 a.m. that morning, and Trump Jr. has since announced this through a video on Instagram that he would address the hacking situation alongside the earlier statement to X.
The businessman explained that he will discuss the hacking attack in a new episode of his podcast called “Triggered” and viewers can watch it starting Thursday evening.
“GO LIVE ON RUMBLE NOW!” Trump Jr. exclaimed.
“So much to talk about, my message to the hackers, plus important news from former acting DNI Ric Grenell.”
