Hackers are hijacking radio broadcasts with YG’s ‘Fuck Donald Trump’

The Max Headroom-style attacks are leaving station managers furious.

Hackers have been targeting small radio stations around the country and broadcasting YG’s political banger, “Fuck Donald Trump.” As BuzzFeed reports, stations in South Carolina, Texas, Indiana, and Kentucky have had broadcasts interrupted by the L.A. rapper’s single since the inauguration. The hacks are reminiscent of the infamous Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion in 1987. The hackers responsible for that disruption, which interrupted broadcasts of Dr. Who to air 90 seconds of a man in a Max Headroom mask, were never caught.

You can watch a news broadcast about the radio hacks below.
