China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Sony Mu­sic En­ter­tain­ment’s Twit­ter ac­count was hacked on Mon­day, pub­lish­ing fake state­ments that pop mu­sic icon Brit­ney Spears had died. Sony Mu­sic, a unit of Sony Corp, said in a short state­ment that its so­cial me­dia ac­count was “com­pro­mised” but that the sit­u­a­tion “has been rec­ti­fied”. The com­pany said it “apol­o­gizes to Brit­ney Spears and her fans for any con­fu­sion.” Spears’s man­ager, Adam Le­ber, said “Brit­ney is fine and well.”
