Sarah Silverman’s Twitter Hacked for Anti-Clinton Message

A former Bernie Sanders supporter, Silverman has since endorsed Hillary Clinton

Comedian Sarah Silverman said Wednesday on Twitter that her account had been hacked, after an earlier message linked to a YouTube video criticizing Hillary Clinton.

"MY TWITTER ACCT GOT HACKED THIS IS NOT ME," Silverman wrote in response to a tweet from 8:48 a.m. ET.

The since deleted post had said "America, are you awakening?" It also included language in the Cyrillic alphabet and linked to a YouTube video from the hacker group Anonymous on April 9 in opposition to Clinton.

Silverman, a former Bernie Sanders supporter, joined Sen. Al Franken Monday night to urge Democratic National Convention delegates to unite behind Clinton.

She also responded to Sanders die-hards who had booed Clinton's name at convention events by saying: "To the Bernie or bust people, you're being ridiculous."
