Taylor Swift lashes out at hackers’ threats to publish her nude pics

Taylor Swift is the latest victim of the Lizard Squad hacking scandal, led by an anonymous group who claim to have taken down a number of high-profile websites over the last week.

Last night the singer's Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked, with the hijackers sending (now-deleted) tweets and unsettling pictures to many of Taylor's fans. Many of the tweets requested that users follow the accounts @lizzard and @veriuser to receive a follow back from Taylor herself.

Despite being on holidays in Hawaii with girlband Haim, the singer was quick off the mark to alert fans to the issue, posting a message to her Tumblr about the hacking. "Well now I'm awake," she wrote. "My Twitter got hacked but don't worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords. Never a dull moment."

"Now Instagram," she added shortly after. "This is going to be a long day."

To make matters worse, it appeared that the hackers were also threatening to publish nude photos of Taylor on her social mediaa accounts. The singer was one of the few celebrities unaffected by last year's massive nude photo leak, and she seemed confident that these latest claims were unfounded, posting this message once her Twitter account was live again:


Ever the professional, the singer finished things off by referencing her hit song, Shake It Off:

All in a day's work!
