NY Post Sends Out Bizarre ‘Heil President Trump’ Notification While Hacked

Over the weekend, the New York Post sent out a series of unusual push alerts, including one that read: “Heil President Trump!”

The alerts, which included a string of religious references, were quickly taken down. The website said their account had been “compromised.”

The string of notifications contained religious language. “Hear me now, for I speak as an angel in the words of God,” read one of the alerts. “In casting truth into the darkness of your shadow, you have gravely sinned.”

Another message read, “With Lucid Love, Selah.”

The Post later apologized to readers.
