The year 2016 has been a very eventful year, with Donald Trump’s unpresidented win, Brits voting to leave the European Union and a large number of famous celebrities passing away—including David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Gene Wilder, Arnold Palmer, Leonard Cohen, John Glenn, George Michael and Carrie Fisher.
Fans of pop diva Britney Spears thought that their idol also joined the list of artists lost to 2016 when Sony Music Entertainment Inc. recently tweeted “RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016.” However, it turns out Sony’s twitter account was hacked and falsely reported the diva’s death. Apologizing to the former Mouseketeer, Sony said that the problem had been “rectified.”
This isn’t the first time that Sony divisions have been targeted by hackers. North Korea allegedly hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. in December 2014 and destroyed company data over the scheduled release of Seth Rogan’s satirical comedy, “The Interview.”
This also isn’t the first time that a celebrity’s Twitter account has been hacked. In May, a hacker took control of songstress Katy Perry’s twitter account, and posted tweets filled with profanities and uncharacteristic messages. With the help of stronger cybersecurity protection measures, perhaps Ms. Perry and Ms. Spears can Rise above the Toxic twitter threat and Roar away Till the World Ends.
