- Mariah Carey woke up in the new year to find herself trending for the wrong reasons
- The popular singer's Twitter account was hacked and unpleasant tweets were sent out without her even knowing
- Her fans are certain that fellow singer, Camila Cabello, had something to do with the hack
Award-winning singer, Mariah Carey's privacy was invaded when her Twitter account got hacked on New Year's Eve.
The tweets that were shared by the hackers referred to her ex, Eminem, and the size of certain body parts. Racial slurs also made their way into the tweets.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, some of the tweets also mentioned a hacker group who got into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's account in August, the Chuckling Squad.
Briefly.co.za noticed that many of Mariah's fans figured that singer Camila Cabello was behind the racially insulting tweets.
It's not clear why the tweeps thought so as there's no report of the two singers fighting.
However, it could be based on Camila's past - the young woman was forced to issue an apology to fans about her past racist and hurtful language on social media.
The apology followers screenshots of some of her past remarks being re-posted on social media. Cabello said she was ashamed of what she did and will regret it forever.
As soon as Twitter staff learnt about the hack, the tweets were deleted and the matter is now being investigated, according to THR.
Check out what some of Mariah's fans had to say. As for the diva herself, she doesn't sound too upset by the whole thing.
She shared a joking tweet about waking up to the mess on her account.
