The Chainsmokers‘ frontman Drew Taggart allegedly had has Twitter account hacked and sent out a string of posts containing vulgar language and sensitive subject matter. Targets of the hacked account include collaborator Halsey, Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj.
Taggart made the discovery eighteen minutes after the litany of tweets and sent out many apologies and deleted the posts. He was able to restore his account only to get hacked once again.
Ironically, the last thing he favorited was this prescient tweet.

The security breach came shortly after Lady Gaga sent a tweet to The Chainsmokers earlier that day, responding to thier not-so-nice comment about her new single “Perfect Illusion”.
