‘Stranger Things’ star Noah Schnapp’s twitter account was hacked on Saturday, August 15, afternoon with some derogatory tweets that used racist slurs. The tweets had bizarre and inappropriate messages.

The first suspicious tweet was dropped at 6.27 pm ET with the message “Suicidal Thoughts”. Though many fans were alarmed by the showing tweet content, others believed that the account is no more in the actor's control. The hackers used Schnapp’s twitter account and tweeted messages tagging a few other accounts which indicate that presumably other hackers are involved in the mischief. “Just beat the f— out of @noah_schnapp and stole his phone #JOBS,” read one of the messages that Schnapp retweeted. After about 30 minutes, many of the tweets from Schnapp’s account were deleted, including one message that included the “N-word” and was widely condemned by netizens and others with sexual comments.

Soon after the news of Schnapp’s account being hacked broke the Internet, many alleged that the location of the hackers was near singer-songwriter Demi Lovato’s house. They started to drag the ‘Don’t Forget’ star and some attacked her on twitter. On the other front, Lovato’s fandom supported her saying one must leave her alone and that it’s unjust to implicate Lovato in wrongs she has not committed. “The ‘Stranger Things’ star @noah_schnapp’s twitter was recently hacked. After a brief investigation Noah’s team has disclosed the location of the hacker, Which leads to Demi Lovato’s house,” tweeted a website that caused a furor on the Internet and people bashing Lovato.



 

 

“That was not funny. Not amused. Not a laugh. Not a chuckle. Not a haha or even a hehe. That was not funny at all. I'd be embarrassed if i were you. You need a tutor on comedy and on humor because this just ain't it. It was terrible. It was horrible. It was NOT Funny.”



 

 

Others asked "Is this supposed to be a joke?" 



 

 

People were too soon to scourge Lovato without knowing the reality behind the notoriety. “So she wrote the n word? Disgusting rat," wrote one. Others still wondered why Lovato would hack others accounts. 



 

 

“I’m missing something. Why would Demi be hacking a ‘Stranger Things’ kids twitter?” wrote one.



 

 

Many pleaded to let Lovato breathe and not pester her over this.“Y'all need to leave her alone, I don't like her, but please... this's not even a joke anymore…” wrote a fan. 



 

 

Lovato, one of the pioneering singers in the American music industry, has reportedly sold over 2 million albums and 20 million singles in 2017 as per Billboard estimate. The ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ sensation has a glorious career but was plagued by bipolar disorder, anorexia, self-harm and drug overdose in the past. She has borne the brunt of spiteful comments many times in the past for her tweets. In 2017, Lovato said that she is “1% African” after having had a DNA test but the Internet dragged the star about her newfound ancestry back then too. “And I'm 1% African!!!!” she wrote in 2017.



 

“Demi in a world of resurgent racism: omg I've got African in me. LOL! Who'd have thought? Also Demi: I don't understand why this is offensive”, wrote one. 



 

In 2019, Lovato left twitter after being attacked for her finding some memes “favorite” about rapper 21 Savage who was in news over immigrant issues that led to his arrest. She wrote, "So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl." In response, one tweeted, “U BEEN A JUNKIE SINCE DISNEY.” Demi Lovato faced a serious amount of backlash after she tweeted, “So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl."



 

 

Though it is not clear who the hackers are in the case of Noah Schnapp, it seems the Internet is in a hurry to show indignation for a star who is perhaps not involved in the case.
