Gigi Hadid's Twitter account is broken into and hacker posts a series of racist tweets

Gigi Hadid should start thinking of new passwords.

The 24-year-old star's Twitter account on Friday was hacked, and the hacker flooded the feed with a series of racist tweets.

Among the shocking and racially-charged tweets included the phrase, 'Yall n***** on some others***,' 'I wish Germany won WWII' and the statement 'Hitler did nothing wrong.'

The A-list model subsequently took to Instagram to clear up any confusion, writing, 'Hope it goes without saying ... my Twitter was hacked.'

The hacker also posted a link to a separate account inviting followers to a 'meet and greet,' and got political with the message, 'I'm voting for @realDonaldTrump best president ever. (The latter statement might have been a dead giveaway to those in the know, as Hadid has past been outspoken about her opposition to Trump's immigration policies - including his efforts to institute a travel ban, and the policy calling for separating parents and their children at the border.)

Late Friday, Hadid's Twitter account was all cleaned up, and the 5ft10 catwalk queen was appreciative of her followers not making any assumptions.

'Secured my Twitter, folks. Thanks for rallying for me,' she said. 'Joke's on the hacker ... I don't use Twitter DM's.'

Aside from hacker hoaxes, the model has past been outspoken when entangled in controversial incidents linked to racism accusations.

In February of 2017, she was seen in an Instagram Stories clip pulling her eyes back while holding up a cookie in the shape of Buddha. She subsequently issued an apology over the post on the popular Chinese social networking site Weibo.

'It hurts me to hurt anyone,' she said. 'I want you all to know that it was never my intent to offend anyone through my actions and I sincerely apologize to those who were hurt or felt let down by me.'

Gigi said she has the 'utmost respect and love for the people of China' and cherished her past visits there.
