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.

According to Malaysia Sun, several people on South Korean online forum DC Inside claimed responsibility for the attack.

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.”
