Death Cab For Cutie have issued a statement after their Facebook page was hacked on Wednesday (August 19).
A series of explicit links and images were posted to the band’s official account, most specifically animated images depicting different sexual positions.
The posts were soon deleted, but not before fans captured screenshots and uploaded the images online. The incident also spawned the hashtag “#deathcabforbooty”.
A statement from the band apologised for the “explicit content”, saying that “fans will not be subjected to these kind of posts in the future”.
