People were shocked to see some rather concerning tweets coming from Dylan Sprouse’s Twitter account on Monday morning.

As it turns out, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody star’s account was hacked. Sprouse wrote on Twitter that he was able to regain control of his account on Monday evening.

It seems there were two hackers who were seeking to gain followers on their personal Twitter accounts, as they dropped their user names in one of the tweets.


They also made a mess of Sprouse’s account, @dylansprouse, by blasting offensive comments to his nearly five million followers.

A racist post was tweeted out from his account. The hackers even dragged his girlfriend Barbara Palvin into the mix by retweeting an offensive comment about her from his account.

“Someone hacked Dylan Sprouse Im-,” one Twitter user wrote.

As expected, Sprouse’s followers were confused and wanted answers.


“lmao what is Dylan Sprouse up to?” one Twitter user asked.

Many had their own theories as to who hacked Sprouse.

Some joked that it could be the manager of the fictional Tipton Hotel from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody or even the ghost in suite 613. If you know, you know.

“I have an idea who hacked Cole & Dylan Sprouse and he’s tired of them recking his lobby,” one Twitter user wrote.
