The singer’s Twitter account was hacked and used to troll rapper Eminem.

Mariah Carey’s 21,4 million Twitter followers were met with obscenities after her account was hacked on New Year’s Eve, according to The Guardian.

While it remains unclear who was behind the hack, the person tweeted racist slurs and offensive comments – some of which were aimed at Eminem, Variety reported.

The hacking incident follows the public feud between Mariah’s ex-husband, Nick Cannon, and Eminem in which they’ve been releasing diss tracks aimed at each other, according to Fox News.

The carnage of the 49-year-old mother-of-two’s Twitter account comes just days after her classic holiday hit track, All I want for Christmas, made history as the first single to top the Billboard charts in four different decades.
