Anderson Cooper's Twitter Gets Hacked, Sends Insulting Message To Donald Trump

Anderson Cooper called President Trump a

It was reacting to Donald Trump's post about last night's special Senate Election in Alabama.

You can try all you want to not tweet, but eventually you will. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has been trying very hard not to tweet - and now his Twitter has apparently been hacked by an unknown party, which sent a very embarrassing tweet.

CNN and Cooper's official explanation for the since deleted tweet is that Cooper's Twitter account was compromised.

A tweet like this is damaging for a highly regarded journalist like Cooper. I guess that really does mean that you can't believe everything that you read on the Internet. He says he has "not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets".

Anderson Cooper Account Responds to Trump Tweet on Moore Loss: 'You Endorsed Him You Tool! Pathetic Loser'
Did Anderson Cooper Just Call Trump a 'Tool' and 'Pathetic Loser' on Twitter?

Many were quick to jump to Cooper's defense after the initial tweet was posted, including CNN's Andrew Kaczynski who runs the news agency's KFILE department which is allegedly the "leading investigation team for the social, mobile generation", but even Kaczynski claimed to have no knowledge of how the initial tweet was posted.

The tweet in question. "We are looking into how this happened". However, it was allegedly posted from his assistant's phone after it was left "unlocked and unattended at the gym". "Anderson was in Washington, and we have proof the tweet was sent from NY, from a phone belonging to his assistant".

Charles C.W. Cooke from National Review asked, "Not to sound like Alex Jones, but why would someone temporarily steal a phone owned by Anderson Cooper's assistant, who was in a gym in a different city than Anderson Cooper?"

They also revealed they're "working with Twitter to secure the account".
