Hackers have attacked North Korea’s official YouTube and Twitter accounts, posting an animation showing Kim Jong-il’s son and rumored heir driving a sports car into a crowd of starving countrymen, according to media reports.
Reuters Africa reports the cyber attack occurred Saturday, which is believed to be Kim Jong-un’s birthday, and called for a revolution against the communist nation’s ruling dynasty.
One of the messages posted on the North’s official Twitter feed said Kim Jong-il and his son were sworn enemies. Another called for the removal of Kim Jong-il for throwing parties at his lavish residence while North Koreans starved to death, Reuters said.
Another tweet called for an uprising to kill the Kims “with a sword,” Voice of America reported.
A two-minute spoof posted on the North’s official YouTube Channel showed Kim Jong-un running over a group of starving people, and a train carrying birthday gifts for him derailing after hitting children on the tracks, Reuters said.
As the youngest son of Kim Jong-il, very little is known about Kim Jong-un. Last year, CNN named the heir among its Most Intriguing People of 2010, a list topped by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, whom CNN described having “more intrigue than the pulp section of a bookstore.”
