Actress and business owner Jessica Alba had to deal with a breached Twitter account over the weekend and now her Instagram account has just been hacked too.

It’s unclear if the same person who hacked her Twitter account is responsible for the Wednesday (Jul 31) Instagram breach but similar messages were posted on both platforms. Alba has over 16m followers on Instagram.

On Instagram, the hacker posted: “Nazi Germany is innocent no matter what y’all say I swear to God.” There was also a call to release incarcerated rapper YNW Melly, who is awaiting trial for a double homicide.

The hacker also included a personal message to the 38-year-old Alba: “Jessica, when I was a little kid, 6 years old, I used to watch fantastic four, and I loved you please forgive me i’m just having fun.”

The offensive messages were wiped out soon after and it was back to Alba’s regular posts which included pictures of her kids and products from her business, Honest Company, which sells baby and beauty items based on ethical consumerism. The actress is also currently starring opposite Gabrielle Union in a new TV series, LA’s Finest, which is a spin-off from the Bad Boys movies. 

While she hasn’t addressed the latest social media hacking, Alba did post a couple of images of her son on Instagram on Jul 30 in response to the Twitter attack. Her son Hayes had his hands on his mouth in one image and was shown with his mouth wide open in the other. Alba captioned the post: “Me yesterday. When you wake up and realise your Twitter got hacked while you were asleep.”
