United States, October 14: Just about a month before the United States’ Presidential elections, the Democratic party’s Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, found herself once again targeted by anonymous groups on the internet. This time, the target was Hillary Clinton’s Wikipedia page. The contents of the page were hacked and modified in a way, that the page displayed a pornographic picture along with a note served to act as a “reminder” that if American citizens voted for Clinton, it would mean “nuclear war will be inevitable.”Also Read - Both Sides Planning For New State-By-State Abortion Fight
The images displayed on Clinton’s page were graphic, to say the least. They showed the image of a naked woman’s backside. the same image was used as a wallpaper multiple times across the page. The pornographic image was then layered with text, which was not pleasant in the least. The text was superimposed on a bright yellow box, which itself was imposed on the woman’s genitals. The text accused Hillary Clinton’s husband, President Bill Clinton of allegedly raping “women and children.” Also Read - Abortion Rights at Stake in Historic Supreme Court Arguments

“Voting for Hillary Clinton this November means proving how much of a spineless, boring … you are. Nuclear war will be inevitable, as will be Bill Clinton raping more women and children. Save the America you know and love by voting Donald Trump. Also girls send a– pics to [redacted]. This message has been brought to you by [redacted] and the g– ni—- association of America. Thank you for your time.”
In what can only be called disgraceful, the hacker ensured that the same message also appeared on the Wikipedia page of former President Bill Clinton. Both the pages were restored within a short period of time. However, the hacker has not been identified. This is not the first time that Hilary Clinton’s Wikipedia page was hacked.

The hacking comes at a time when another set of emails of Hillary Clinton were released. This time, the bunch of emails were released from John Podesta’s account, who was Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign.
The text put up by the hacker accusing Bill Clinton of “rape of women and children”, comes at a time when the Republican Presidential nominee is facing a hard time among numerous allegations of sexual assault and harassment against him. A video of Donald trump was released on Friday that showed Trump making lewd comments about women. Trump has been facing enormous amounts of flak for sexually objectifying women.
In response, trump had promised that he would “discuss” Bill Clinton’s sex scandals and Hillary Clinton’s role in discrediting the women involved. Shocking enough, Donald Trump held a press conference with three of Bill Clinton’s accusers of sexual assault : Kathleen Willy, Juanita Broaddrick, and Paula Jones. Bill Clinton almost faced impeachment during his tenure as President for his extra-marital affairs.
