Ugh! So awful!

People have a really twisted sense of humor!

FoxNews has come under fire today after one of its Twitter pages, FoxNewspolitics, released a message this morning to its 36,000+ followers that President Barack Obama had been shot twice and killed at an Iowa restaurant.

Upon further investigation, it's been revealed that the assassination report was clearly false, and was the work of a hacker.

Thankfull, the President and his family are safe and sound, enjoying their fourth of July at the White House.

Vice president and general manager of Fox News Digital Jeff Misenti says in a statement:

“We will be requesting a detailed investigation from Twitter about how this occurred, and measures to prevent future unauthorized access into FoxNews.com accounts.”

We certainly hope so.

Such a disgusting and tasteless joke.

Here's hoping that whomever is responsible is caught and punished accordingly!
