Stranger Things star Joe Keery has apologised to fans, after a hacker posted “horrible comments” on his Twitter account.
The actor, best known for playing Steve Harrington in the hit Netflix series, had to shut down his Twitter account over the weekend – after someone hacked into it.
The hacker posted some bizarre tweets, including one which included a racist slur.
Another post claimed he was “molested” on the set of Stranger Things, and another suggested he had tested positive for COVID-19.
Thankfully, Joe has since gained control of his account.
The 27-year-old tweeted: “Hey everyone, I was hacked as I’m sure everyone knows. What a bummer that someone would go to such great lengths to spread hate.”
“I want to apologize for the horrible comments that were posted, it was deeply upsetting to me. Much love to you all in these crazy times.”
