Super awks! Katy Perry‘s Twitter account was hacked on Monday night, and the hacker – Romanian Twitter user @sw4ylol – thought it would be funny to send out some love to Katy’s pop star rival Taylor Swift! You have to admit… it is pretty funny!!!

Katy has 89 million followers on Twitter, making her the most followed person on the social media platform. So, it was a pretty big feat for the hacker to get into her account!

Some of the tweets the hacker posted from Katy’s account

Taylor, who reportedly based her song Bad Blood on her ongoing feud with Katy – previously revealed details about how the war between her and her rival began.

“She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me,” Taylor confessed.

And the hacker didn’t just cause a scene with those tweets… they also posted a link to an unreleased Katy Perry song called Witness!

Shortly after, the @sw4ylol account posted a screenshot of a takedown notice email from SoundCloud, but that didn’t stop fans from downloading the song and uploading it to YouTube.

@sw4ylol claimed responsibility for the hack, and wrote “#hackersgonnahack(sic)” before they signed off. LOL! And although all the tweets have now been deleted – the damage was definitely done!

Poor Katy!
