Whitney Cummings has become the latest celebrity victim of malicious hackers.

The actress/comedian, who stars in the NBC sitcom "Whitney," lost control of her personal Twitter feed on Tuesday evening when members of the hacking group Clan Vv3 commandeered the page and began posting hateful, racist messages to her 630,000+ followers.

Just after midnight, Cummings was able to once again obtain control of the account. The offensive messages were removed and Cummings posted this tweet to her fans:


Whitney Cummings
Hey guys I was obviously hacked. I'm so sorry you had to read that disgusting garbage. Love, Whitney

A motive for the attack has not been released.
