The series of tweets emerged Saturday evening, repeating the word "nigga" in several posts.

Anna Kendrick's official Twitter account appeared to have been hacked for a brief period on Saturday evening.

Starting around 5:26 p.m., a series of tweets were sent out to Kendrick's 7.2 million followers that used offensive language. Sentences such as "shoutout my nigga james bro" and "funky in this bih nigga" were among the approximately thirty tweets.

Additionally, the website on the account was changed to "Thug.org." Twitter users immediately caught on, commenting that Kendrick's account was compromised. The Pitch Perfect actor's Instagram account appeared unaffected.

At around 5:48 p.m., the tweets were deleted and the website on Kendrick's account reverted back to the page for her paperback book of personal essays, titled Scrappy Little Nobody. The book is a New York Times bestseller.

Later in the evening, Kendrick's representative confirmed that the account was compromised, and has now been secured.

The Hollywood Reporter has also reached out to the press department at Twitter for comment.
