Actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba’s twitter account was hacked over the weekend, by someone who posted pro-Hitler, racist, homophobic, misogynist and anti-disabled comments.

The hate-filled, obscenity-laced tweets were quickly deleted, although some twitter users have continued posting screen grabs of the offensive tweets.

"Nazi Germany Did Nothing Wrong And That's On God (racial epithet)," one tweet read.

Alba’s representatives had no comment. Alba starred in the Fantastic Four films, and founded The Honest Company, which markets ecologically safe baby, beauty and household products. Alba is Mexican-American and Cash Warren, her husband, is biracial.

The biggest controversy in which the actress was embroiled in the past was over whether or not some of the soaps carried by her company actually contained ingredients that were not eco-friendly. Alba apologized and removed the offending products or replaced them with reformulated versions. At one point The Honest Company had a private valuation of more than one billion dollars.

A year ago, she weighed in on the #MeToo movement, telling CNN that she had been sexually harassed throughout her career: “As a young actress growing up in the business, you just accepted that that's the way you were going to be treated.”

It seemed unlikely that the hackers fooled anyone into thinking that the foul tweets actually came from Alba, who had not posted on her account since July 20.

"At least hack somebody that is halfway believably racist! Jessica Alba aint hurtin nobody sellin clean baby products and makeup wipes!" read a tweet from one of her followers.
