Katy Perry was the victim of a Twitter hack yesterday, (May 30). The singer’s account was taken over at 9 p.m. last night when a Romanian hacker posted insulting tweets and racist comments as well as allegedly leaking a previously unreleased song.
Using the hashtag “#HackersGonnaHack,” the person who tweeted as Perry posted a Soundcloud link to a song called “Witness,” which has since been deleted.

The song was hosted on a Soundcloud page which is well known for featuring bootleg remixes, reported the NME. Though the vocals reportedly didn’t sound like Perry, some have speculated that the track could have been penned by Bonnie McKee, Max Martin or Sia. Perry has not issued a statement regarding either the hack or song leak.
