Donald Trump Jr.’s X account was apparently hacked early Wednesday.

One post falsely stated that his father, former President Trump, had died, according to screenshots viewed by NBC News.

"I’m sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024," reads the post on X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter.

The former president appeared to prove that he was still alive by posting on the Truth Social later in the morning.

“When I become president I'm going to burn the SEC,” reads another post.
