New York Post, is everything OK over there?
On Saturday night, the newspaper’s push alerts became a little ominous, with rhetorical flourishes that evoked both the Bible and Nazi Germany.
“Hear me now, for I speak as an angel in the words of God,” it wrote, according to screenshots posted on Twitter by bemused subscribers. It’s an interesting take on the day’s current affairs, but fair enough.
It followed that up with a casual, “Heil President Donald Trump.”
Was the account hacked or was it an April Fools’ prank gone wrong? Alternatively, does the outlet truly want you to, “Open your heart to those you do not understand and listen to all those you fear and look down upon”?
The New York Post has been approached to find out.
Whoever the culprit, they signed off “With Lucid Love, Selah.”
The Post later sent a push notification clarifying that its notification system had been “compromised.”
