(FILES) In this file photo taken on December 31, 2017, singer Mariah Carey performs during New Year's Eve celebrations in Times Square in New York. Carey has had a long list of hits over the years, but her classic holiday song has helped her make history as the first artist to top the Billboard charts in four separate decades. "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is atop the Billboard Hot 100 for the week dated January 4, 2020, based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data -- its third week atop the rankings. That means Carey has had a number one single in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s. / AFP / DON EMMERT Image Credit: AFP

Singer Mariah Carey’s Twitter account was hacked on New Year’s Eve, and more than 50 tweets, some using vulgarities, the N-word and jibes against rapper Eminem.

“As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised account and are currently investigating the situation,” a Twitter spokesperson told USA Today.

The hackers claimed to be The Chuckling Squad that broke into the account of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey as well as other celebrities, including actress Chloe Grace Moretz.

The platform said that it secured Dorsey’s account, which became a victim of ‘SIM swapping’ or ‘SIM jacking’ where a mobile number is transferred to a new SIM card.

It is still not known if Carey’s mobile number was compromised too.
