Self-proclaimed "super hacker" briefly takes over Disneyland Instagram with racist and slur-filled posts

The Disneyland Resort Instagram account was briefly hacked early Thursday morning by a self-proclaimed "super hacker." The hacker, who says his name is David Do, created multiple posts on the official account filled with racist and homophobic slurs. 

The Disneyland Resort Instagram page was briefly hacked on Thursday morning with several posts filled with slurs. 

"I am a super hacker that is here to bring revenge upon Disney land," he wrote alongside a photo of what appears to be himself, saying that he is sick of employees mocking him. "...Who's the tough guy now Jerome?" 

Along with repeatedly using the N-word in his posts, the hacker repeatedly said he "invented covid." 

The hacker also posted on the account's Instagram story. 

Disneyland has 8.4 million followers on Instagram and its page is otherwise filled with photos of families, children and activities at the California resort. 

The account was temporarily taken down shortly after the incident and reemerged without any of the hacked posts. 

Disneyland's other social media pages seem to be unaffected. 

In a statement, a Disneyland official confirmed to CBS News that the account was "compromised" early in the morning. 

"We worked quickly to remove the reprehensible content, secure our accounts and our security teams are conducting an investigation," the official said.
