    Twitter lit up hours before the ball dropped Tuesday night after famed singer Mariah Carey’s Twitter was hacked and proceeded to spread profane and problematic content for several minutes straight.

    Carey, also known as “Mimi” and “the Queen of Christmas,” closed out the year with a scandal that was (presumably) completely out of her control. 

    The unknown hacker gained control of Carey’s account on December 31 and proceeded to tweet out since-deleted messages that ranged from a link to the Chuckling Squad’s Discord group to several tweets concerning rapper Eminem - Carey’s notorious ex and the subject of her Recording Industry Association of America-certified 2x Platinum hit “Obsessed.”

    A shirtless selfie believed to depict the hacker in question was also tweeted from the elusive chanteuse’s Twitter account, with the caption “xbox n***as.”

    The hacker retweeted an account by the name of “aqua24721558,” which appeared to also be operated by the individual, as the profile declared, “burning my PC after this feds aint catching me [sic].”

    Due to the hacker’s unconvincing, crude content and Carey having recently made history as the first artist to have a No. 1 record on the Billboard Hot 100 list in four separate decades, netizens decided to get their jokes in before the new year. 

    While Carey has a five-octave vocal range, it’s likely that the diva will remain mute on this subject until 2020.
