we’re really ending this decade with mariah carey’s twitter being hacked, huh?— 𝑨𝒍𝒆𝒙 (@RuneAlexandra) December 31, 2019The tweets were quickly deleted, some media attribute the hack to the hacking collective known as “Chuckling Squad.”

The Chuckling Squad has taken credit for a number of attacks on high-profile Twitter accounts, including beauty vlogger James Charles, the Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the Instagram account of Robert Downey Jr, the actress Chloë Moretz, and the account belonging to YouTube personality Desmond Amofah, known as @Etika, who died earlier this year in an apparent suicide.

It is not clear how hackers compromised the Mariah Carey ‘s account, in the hack of Dorsey’s account attackers used SIM-swapping attack to take over the account.
