On the first night of the DNC, actress and comedian Sarah Silverman delivered a rebuke to the “Bernie or bust” crowd. Silverman, a former Sanders supporter, stood onstage with Sen. Al Franken to push a message of “unity,” and told anti-Clinton attendees they were “being ridiculous.”
Two days later her Twitter account was hacked to broadcast a message critical of the Democratic nominee.

The since deleted post had said “America, are you awakening?” It also included language in the Cyrillic alphabet and linked to a YouTube video from the hacker group Anonymous on April 9 in opposition to Clinton.
