Stanislaus County Superior Court officials are blaming a hacked Twitter account for a post Thursday afternoon that endorsed President Donald Trump’s reelection and ridiculed protesters who tore down a Confederate statue.

The post, which appeared shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday, retweeted a video uploaded by One American News Network anchor Alex Salvi showing protesters on Wednesday evening dismantling statues encircling the Confederate monument in Portsmouth, Virginia. Debris appears to hit someone in the crowd. Local media reported Thursday that a man at the gathering sustained serious head injuries.
