(Before It's News)

Haven’t seen one of these in a while, but this one’s pretty ugly. The Forbes Twitter page has been hacked, it appears, and the profile avatar, page header background, and at least one tweet reflect it.

Here’s a screenshot of the page header and profile pic.

And here is the tweet. It’s not pretty.

As far as I can tell, the hackers are calling Germany a bunch of Nazis, presumably as a result of the recent row between Erdogan, the Netherlands and Germany over calling people “Nazi remnants.” Charges of Islamaphobia have been flying too as Turkey continues to feud with the continent.

And it appears it’s not JUST Forbes that got hit.

I suppose it’s supposed to be seen as a protest.

Update: Looks like it’s spreading.
