The official Disneyland Instagram page appeared to have been briefly hacked. According to reports on Thursday, a hacker posted at least four posts containing racial slurs and vulgar language.
The hacker also uploaded a picture of himself and wrote “I am a super hacker that is here to bring revenge upon Disneyland.”

The post went on to say he is sick of employees mocking him. The account was temporarily taken down shortly after the incident and has since been reinstated without the hacked posts.
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.
“We worked quickly to remove the reprehensible content, secure our accounts and our security teams are conducting an investigation,” a Disneyland official said.
The hacker has not made any public demands so far. Disneyland’s other social media pages seem to be unaffected.
