DJ Paul van Dyk has said his Twitter account was hacked after a vile racist message was posted on his profile.
A recent tweet from the German trance producer’s social media page read: “RULE #1: No black people allowed at concerts from this point on. No exceptions.”
“The messages posted were deeply offensive and contrary to everything Paul has stood for in his decades-long career,” said a statement from a representative for Paul van Dyk.
The tweet was later deleted, with the DJ clarifying: “Hi guys, yes my account got hacked, the whole team is working to get it back under control. Thanks for your messages.”
Hi guys, yes my account got hacked, the whole team is working to get it back under control. Thanks for your messages.
