Two conservative news websites – Human Events and The Post Millennial – were hacked on Thursday evening and replaced with a page leaking private information.

Both websites were taken down by unnamed hackers and replaced with a fake coming out letter purported to be written by Post Millennial senior editor Andy Ngo.

“Dear Readers of The Post Millennial, I am writing to you today to share something deeply personal and important to me,” the letter opened. “After much soul-searching, I have come to the realization that I am a trans individual, and I would like to officially introduce myself as Angelina Ngo, a woman.”

At the end of the letter, the hacker concluded, “P.S. I am also sharing with you all of our mailing lists, our subscriber database and the personal details of all our writers and editors,” along with links to download the private information.

The official Twitter accounts for both Human Events and The Post Millennial – which was acquired by Human Events in 2022 – were also made private at the time of the hack, though it uncertain whether this was the doing of the hacker or a protective response by the owners of the websites.

An hour after the incident took place, the hacker’s note was removed from both websites and replaced with a temporary page which read, “SITE UNDER MAINTENACE… Sorry for any inconveinance.”

As of reporting, neither Ngo nor Post Millennial and Human Events editor-in-chief Libby Emmons have issued statements on the incident.
