New York Post apologizes after hacked app sends out ‘Heil President’ alert

The New York Post sent out several questionable push alerts Saturday night leaving people asking if the news organization had been hacked.

“Heil President Donald Trump,” stated one push notification at around 10:45 p.m. Saturday, before posting another eight more notifications for those with the mobile app.

“In casting truth into the darkness of your shadow, you have gravely sinned…” said one alert.

The final notification read “with Lucid Love, Selah.”

Another message included lyrics from Nirvana’s 1991 hit “Come As You Are.”
“The push alert system for our mobile app was compromised this evening,” The Post tweeted.

“Please accept our apologies.”

The hacker was not identified and signed off “with lucid love, Selah.”
