Sony Music Entertainment has issued an apology after a hack on its Twitter account led to the company falsely reporting the death of Britney Spears.
The tweets, which have since been deleted, read “RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016,” according to USA Today. Sony said the issue has now been resolved and in a statement offered an apology to the singer.
The hack on the account comes two years after a major attack on Sony Pictures, which initially led the Hollywood studio to cancel the release of The Interview, a comedy involving a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Personal details and emails about some of the world’s biggest film starts were exposed during the hack.
