E! News was the victim of hacking when Syrian Electronic Army hacker group took over the account (@eonline) on Saturday. The group briefly led the account’s 5.2 million followers to believe that Justin Bieber had come out of the closet. “Exclusive: Justin Bieber to E!online: I’m a gay,” the tweet read. However, the SEA quickly took credit, spoiling the potential debate over whether the singer was a top or bottom.

The group also hacked the Twitter accounts of 60 Minutes and AP, which tweeted that the president had been injured making the DOW drop 100 points. E! News’ account was briefly suspended but it’s back to reporting celebrity news.
