A series of racist tweets were sent out by the Salem State University's Twitter page after someone hacked the account. The tweets were sent out a day before Gov. Charlie Baker spoke at the university's graduation.
The messages started around 10:30 p.m. and involved a series of racist tweets. Boston25News reports the tweets continued for about two hours until the university regained control of the Twitter account and deleted the messages.
The hack comes just hours before the school’s undergraduate commencement.
Boston 25 News reached out to school officials for comment:
Salem State’s Facebook page says none of the tweets represent the university’s views. The school also apologized on Twitter.
