Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is the latest powerful brand to be hacked. Powell’s official Facebook page has been taken over and is being peppered with insults to his old boss George W. Bush as moderators fight to take back control. (The page seems to be down at the moment.)

It’s safe to say this social media fail is the biggest fail of Colin Powell’s entire career.
