Electronics retailer RadioShack said it was not hacked on Twitter after a series of tweets filled with vulgarities and expletives caused widespread confusion.

In fact, the person behind RadioShack’s official account tweeted Wednesday that they knew the tweets “would go viral” because they were “fire AF.”

“No we didnt get hacked, and no im not fired,” the tweet read.

The company is now a crypto platform, called RadioShack Crypto, which prompted many on Twitter to speculate that the posts were a way to get publicity. The brand’s name was trending on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon and into Thursday.

“Taking the second half of an edible after feeling nothing from the first half is always a bad idea. This chocolate bar got me out here fighting for my life,” one of the tweets read.

RadioShack did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

The company filed for bankruptcy twice in about two years from 2015 to 2017. In 2020, RadioShack was bought by Retail Ecommerce Ventures, a Miami-based company that has attempted to revive distressed retailers like Pier 1 Imports, Modell’s Sporting Goods and Stein Mart.

“The RadioShack Twitter account is going wild. It’s like a 4chan post over there,” a Twitter user wrote. “Surely this new edgy online persona isn’t a carefully crafted corporate plan…”

Another Twitter user warned people about falling “for this grift,” writing: “Radioshack is getting a lot of attention for being edgelord wacky right now. This is an ad campaign to court public favor for their crypto scheme.”
