LOS ANGELES, May 5 (UPI) -- The entertainment news organization E! Online said its Twitter account was suspended after it apparently was hacked and false messages were posted.
"E online's breaking news Twitter and SMS accounts were compromised today," E! said in a statement Saturday. "We're working to have this resolved as quickly as possible and are fully investigating the incident. We apologize for any confusion that the erroneous news alerts may have caused."
The @eonline Twitter account, which had 5.2 million followers, showed messages reporting pop star Justin Bieber is gay, The Hollywood Reporter said.
E! was the latest in a slew of news outlets being hacked on Twitter. Accounts for CBS' "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours" have been hacked in the last month.
