According to several reports and social media posts, hackers are now taking that sentiment to airwaves across the country.
According to a Facebook post from Salem, S.C. radio station Sunny 107.9 WFBS, someone was able to take control of the station’s signal Monday night (Jan. 30) and replaced its usual fare (“classic hits of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and the 80’s, plus the very best in Carolina Beach Music”) with YG’s anti-Trump track, which played on repeat for 20 minutes, according to a news segment by local television station WYFF News 4.
“They ran from about 7:25 last night until about 7:45, which I then had to turn the radio station completely off in order to be able to stop the system and stop what you were able to hear over the air,” Jeff Bright, who runs WFBS out of his South Carolina home, told WYFF. “[Listeners] have been pretty positive. They understand that this was not our fault, we didn’t have any control over this.”
Also, a Seattle pirate radio station has reportedly been playing the song on repeat for a week, though it had appeared to have been intentional. And another report from Mooresville, N.C. (who also voted for Trump) said a local cable television channel had its audio feed hacked and was playing the song for about 30 minutes last week, prompting the station to shut down its audio feed.
