John Legend saw the funny side after his Twitter account was hacked by a ‘vulgar’, but ‘hilarious’, prankster.
“Someone just hacked my account,” tweeted the singer after a series of bizarre anti-Donald Trump messages were posted from his account.
One now-deleted tweet, which referred to president Trump as a ‘cheeto’ [ a cheese-flavoured, cornmeal snack popular in the US], said: “I can’t stand by and be silent…”
A vulgar message about former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton also appeared before it was swiftly deleted.
“I'm back. My hacker was vulgar and kinda hilarious. I'll try to be funnier from now on so he won't feel the need to ghost write for me,” the 38-year-old said.
“I would never threaten violence to the President. No matter how much I wish he would go away.
“I wouldn't call him a Cheeto because I enjoy Cheetos.
“I did call him Liar-In-Chief. Then my hacker took over to do the Angrier John version of it all.”
Legend has previously slammed Trump over his controversial travel ban, he said last month: “Our vision of America is directly antithetical to that of President Trump.
“I want to specifically reject his vision and affirm that America has to be better than that.”
He also joked about Sean Spicer’s exaggerated claims about the size of the crowd at Trump’s inauguration.
