CNN says Anderson Cooper's Twitter account apparently hacked

Anderson Cooper says Twitter was hacked after tweet goes out calling Trump a 'pathetic loser'

Anderson Cooper claims his Twitter account, which featured a critical response to one of Donald Trump's Wednesday morning tweets, was hacked.

Trump mentioned his support for candidates Luther Strange and GOP candidate Roy Moore, but Democrat Doug Jones won the high-profile election. Trump endorsed Roy Moore in the general election yet backed Sen. I guess that really does mean that you can't believe everything that you read on the Internet.

Cooper tweeted about it Wednesday, explaining, "just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account".

Anderson Cooper's alleged hacked tweet
The tweet in question

CNN's communications team issued a statement on Twitter as well, backing up Cooper's explanation that an unauthorised person gained control of his account.

This is now the only official statement by CNN explaining the tweet sent from Anderson's account. "I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!" He says he has "not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets". 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", the statement read. He's apparently the only other person besides Anderson with access to the account. "We are looking into how this happened", he said.

Not everyone bought the freaky explanation for the tweet.
