Fort Bragg deleted its Twitter account on Wednesday after initially blaming a hack for comments left on a nude model’s photos, before an administrated admitted to sending the inappropriate tweets.

After the inappropriate tweets were initially made, the Fort Bragg account went offline. ABC 11 reported the Army base issued a statement blaming the tweets on an account hack.

“As many of you may know, there were a string of explicit Tweets from our account this afternoon. This was not the work of our admins. Our account was hacked. We apologize to our followers. We have secured our account and (sic) looking into the matter,” the Army base said.

After the incident, the XVIII Airborne Corps headquartered at Fort Bragg also tweeted that the account was taken offline following the claimed account hacking incident.

The XVIII Airborne Corps Twitter account tweeted, “Earlier this afternoon the Fort Bragg Twitter account was hacked and a string of inappropriate tweets were posted to the account. When made aware, the Fort Bragg social media team deleted the tweets & temporarily moved the account offline. The matter is under investigation.”

Andrew Fienberg, on Wednesday, tweeted screenshots of the Fort Bragg Twitter account’s comments responding to the nude model’s tweets. Feinberg tweeted, “I have so many questions (but I’m not sure if I want to know the answers given how this week is going).”

In the screenshot of the exchange, the nude model tweeted, “bro why did u subscribe to my onlyfans if you hate pubic hair, why bro, why.” The Fort Bragg Twitter account responded, “He’s lost and doesn’t know a good thing when it’s staring him in the eyes, or tickling his nose in this case.”

In a second tweet, the same nude model shared a nude photo with the caption, “your b*ners POV,” to which the Fort Bragg account responded, “My face’s, then my b*ners and then my face’s again before I come up to give you a deep long kiss.”

On Thursday, following its initial tweet addressing the incident the day earlier, the XVIII Airborne Corps tweeted a new statement announcing an admission by an account administrator that they were responsible for the explicit tweets.

“This morning, at the initiation of an investigation into yesterday’s incident regarding inappropriate tweets on the Fort Bragg Twitter account, an administrator for the account identified himself as the source of the tweets. Appropriate action is underway,” the XVIII Airborne Corps tweeted.
