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.”
