Hackers attack Sarah Silverman’s Twitter to post ‘Anonymous’ anti-Hillary video
Comedian Sarah Silverman said on Wednesday that her Twitter account was hacked and used to post an anti-Hillary Clinton video, WTVJ-TV reported.
Earlier in the day, a tweet generated from Silverman’s account read, “America, are you awakening?” along with the same phrase in Russian and a link to a video attributed to members of the Anonymous collective and released this past April.
“Many believe and blindly support you,” the video states. “But we know your real intentions. Your real motives. And your real plans.”
Silverman, who appeared at the Democratic National Convention on Monday, then posted from the account to say she did not link to the video, as seen below.

In her remarks at the convention, Silverman — who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during the primary — endorsed Clinton as the party’s nominee, telling Sanders delegates that they were “being ridiculous.”
