Mariah Carey’s Twitter account was hacked on New Year’s Eve, with a series of offensive tweets filling the singer’s timeline.

Dozens of tweets were posted to the hacked account on Tuesday afternoon, some using the N-word, others disparaged rapper Eminem, and others referred to the Chuckling Squad, a hacker group that took control of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account.

Among the messages were references to Eminem’s genitalia, reminding fans of Carey’s longstanding feud with the rapper. The “Lose Yourself” rapper claims to have dated the Grammy-winning singer, a claim which she denies.

“Eminem can still hold this p—y….” one tweet read. Another said, “Eminem has a little penis.”

Twitter confirmed to Deadline that Carey’s account was hacked.

“As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised account and are currently investigating the situation,” a company rep said in a statement.

Once the account was back up and running, Carey posted a tweet jokingly referring to being hacked.

“I take a freaking nap and this happens?” read a tweet posted to her account at 9:51 p.m. ET.
