2K has regained control of its social media pages at the time of writing.
“Social media accounts across the 2K label were compromised early Friday evening,” a 2K representative told Eurogamer. “Unfortunately, offensive material was posted that does not reflect the values of 2K or our partners. We condemn these posts and apologise to everyone offended by the content.”
While we won’t reproduce some of the racist material that was posted, the hack also changed the WWE 2K20 Facebook page to feature logos from All Elite Wrestling (AEW) alongside a banner photo of Chris Benoit, the late performer who took is own life after killing his wife and child in 2007.
“There’s an employee out here refreshing and removing/updating the pic every time and he can’t do anything to stop it, let that sink in ladies and gentlemen,” a post from someone identifying themself as Nublom read during the social media hack. Nublom later refered to themself as “da goat” in a post that followed.
The pages are all back to normal at the time of writing.
