The New York Post late Saturday said it was "compromised" after sending out a series of push alert notifications that included a message reading: “Heil President Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpZuckerberg launches public defense of Facebook as attacks mount Trump leaning toward keeping a couple hundred troops in eastern Syria: report Warren says making Israel aid conditional on settlement building is 'on the table' MORE.”

“Hear me now, for I speak as an angel in the words of God," read another alert. “In casting truth into the darkness of your shadow, you have gravely sinned.”

Another message appeared to be directed at the president: "Open your heart to those you do not understand and listen to all those you fear and look down upon." 

The series of nine alerts also included a lyric from Nirvana song “Come As You Are” and appeared to be signed off as “With Lucid Love, Selah.”


The Post apologized soon after the alerts, which were sent out around 10:45 p.m. ET on April Fools Day.

“Our push alert notification system was compromised this evening. We are working to resolve the issue. Please accept our apologies,” the Post sent in a follow-up push alert, according to The Associated Press.
