The hackers changed the name of Morgan, 57,’s account multiple times and used offensive language to rename it.
One tweet even said ‘f*** the queen’, while another referred to Ed Sheeran using an offensive name.
Fans and supporters responded quickly, with some calling on Twitter to address the attack and others asking hackers to access Morgan’s direct messages to discover his past communications with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Some even interacted with the hacked account, requesting the release of Morgan’s DMs.
