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.”

Sophia Nelson, who ran for Congress as a Republican, made her argument in The Daily Beast.

"Donald Trump has attacked so many women in so many ways for their looks, their age, or their position it can be hard to keep track," Nelson wrote. "But the president took his attacks on strong, accomplished and independent women even further in his attacks on his own U.S. ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch, telling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that 'the former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news.' That was in the now infamous phone call that led to the impeachment hearings that began this week, and Friday, in the middle of Yovanovitch’s testimony there, he tweeted that 'everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.'”
