    Over the weekend, Jessica Alba’s name became trending on social media for an unusual reason – the famed actress slept through the hijacking of her account by anonymous trolls, who posted heinous comments on her behalf.

    In the early hours of Sunday, Jessica Alba’s Twitter account began spewing out hateful comments.

    Jessica’s account, which typically contains nothing but links to her Instagram page, posted a series of racially-charged tweets to her nine million followers between midnight and 1 AM PT.

    One comment read: “Ugh, police sirens in the distance again. When will n*****s stop committing crimes so I can get some f****ng sleep?”

    Another went: “Rumor has it that handicap f*****s are behind 9/11.”

    There were also wild tweets suggesting that “Nazi Germany did nothing wrong” and calling for the release of YNW Melly, an American rapper facing the death penalty in a double-murder case.

    The Fantastic Four star and her team apparently regained control of the page within an hour and deleted the comments, but their screenshots have been doing the rounds on social media.

    “Jessica Alba did not carry the entire Fantastic Four franchise on her back to get hacked in her sleep while she was just trying to sell us multi-vitamins,” a user joked. 

    Many were surprised that out of all targets, the hacker went after the innocuous mother-of-three.

    “At least hack somebody that is halfway believably racist!” one person wrote. “Jessica Alba ain’t hurting nobody selling clean baby products and makeup wipes!”

    Another said: “Jessica Alba getting hacked is the most unprecedented event of 2019.”

    The actress has not commented on the apparent hack.
