So scary. A hacker tweeted multiple messages from Hailee Steinfeld’s Twitter and dug up an alleged DM that many fans are crying is ‘fake.’ See the troubling tweets under fire, here.
Hailee Steinfeld’s Twitter was broken into on Sept. 21. The hacker posted a series of now deleted tweets from the 21-year-old actress’s account, accusing her of using the n-word. “Lol haley steinfield is racist just found a dm of her using the n word,” the first tweet read, misspelling the Pitch Perfect 3 actress’s name. The hacker then posted a screenshot from the alleged DM, which reads, “jeez what a f***ing n*****.” The rest of the conversation is not shown, and could’ve very well been edited. In the last tweet, the trespasser wrote, “hailee is cancelled she really said the n word in the dms lol SHE’S BEEN CANCELLED SIS.” HollywoodLife has reached out to Hailee’s reps for a comment.
Many of Hailee’s fans are certain the “DM” is fake. “This is edited right? there’s no way she would say that,” one fan tweeted afterwards. More fans defended the “Most Girls” singer with the same word: “unproblematic”! They wrote, “Yall Hailee Steinfeld is the sweetest most genuine person in the industry, shes unproblemetic and kind so whoever is hacking her disgusts me,” “Hailee Steinfeld is like the least problematic girl in the industry, hackers need to stay away from my multitalented Oscar nominee at only 14 sis,” and, “hailee steinfeld is so unproblematic someone had to hack her and photoshop a dm.” One Hailee stan especially got heated and tweeted, “imagine actually hating hailee steinfeld JSDJKD she’s literally an angel and she’s so incredibly beautiful niall picked the right girl but go off i guess!!!!!!!” The Twitter user was referencing Niall Horan, 25, whom Hailee has been casually seeing since dating rumors first started in February.
Another fan also mentioned the former One Direction member, assuming the hacker was a jealous fan. “Which 1d stans hacked Hailee Steinfeld acc,” a fan asked on Twitter after the supposed DM was leaked. As for Hailee and Niall’s relationship, they are still keeping it casual, per Hailee’s wishes. “Niall is a relationship guy and wants to pursue that with Hailee exclusively, but she is taking things slower and is definitely wearing the pants in the relationship so far,” a source close to the pair EXCLUSIVELY told us on Aug. 17. “He’s a bit of a puppy dog for her.” So no jealous haters, please!
After being hacked on Twitter and accused of using the n-word in an alleged DM, Hailee tweeted the following statement on Sept. 21: “Hi everyone, my Twitter was clearly hacked. Everything is back to normal. Love you all. Thank you for looking out for me!”
In anticipation of World Food Day on October 16, Michael Kors unveiled a slew of initiatives to support Watch Hunger Stop, the brand’s annual campaign to fight global hunger. Longtime supporter Kate Hudson is back to help promote the project, joined this year by Hailee Steinfeld. “It was an honor to team up with Michael Kors for such an important, worthy cause,” said Steinfeld. “All children deserve to have their basic needs met in order to fulfill their greatest potential.”
This year marks the fifth anniversary of the campaign and to celebrate, Kors commissioned multi-media artist Eli Sudbrack I AVAF to create a signature design for this year’s t-shirts. With each shirt purchased, 100 meals will be donated, meaning 100% of the profits will go straight to the initiative. “When I was invited to this project, I was so happy to finally do something where I could reach out and help people’s lives in a very concrete way,” said Sudbrack. “I come from a country that has a lot of issues with hunger and education. If you can solve those two problems, the world would be different.”
Not only will purchasing the shirt help the cause, but posting about it will, too. For every photo of the shirt posted with the hashtag #watchhungerstop, an additional 100 meals will be donated. But it doesn’t stop there! Kors will also be releasing a limited edition unisex watch, and with every purchase another 100 meals will be donated. Additionally, the brand will roll out a special Snapchat geo-filter on October 1st, available in store in the US and the UK, and for every snap using the filter, another 25 meals will be donated. To say they’ve made giving back easy would be an understatement.
We personally think Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld are one of the cutest couples in Hollywood at the moment but, for some strange reason, not everyone agrees.
A girl who claims to be a fan of the “Slow Hands” crooner took it upon herself to post some awful things about Niallee on Twitter, including that the relationship is completely fake. The 25-year-old saw these messages, followed her and reportedly slid into her DMs to defend his girlfriend and his romance.
“I’m asking about all of your extremely mean tweets,” he allegedly wrote.
The girl was, as you can probably expect, super upset once she realized Niall saw the hateful comments. She quickly tried to backtrack and say she “never meant to be rude,” but was “just worried” for his wellbeing. She proceeded to delete the notes, but the Irish cutie wasn’t done teaching her a lesson just yet.
“It’s extremely rude to write stuff about people you don’t now online, it’s called bullying,” he fired back. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
The person on the receiving end of the private messages finally apologized and admitted that she “should have never done that.” While many people would’ve dropped it right then and there, Niall went on to prove that he actually is a prince and actually THANKED HER for being a fan and supporting his music.
His last DM allegedly read, “Thank you for the support of my music and I appreciate it.”
It’s so easy for people to say whatever they want on social media behind the comfort of their computer screen, but it’s important to remember that cyberbullying is still bullying and is NEVER acceptable, even when it’s a celebrity on the receiving end.
In an essay for TODAY Style, singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld opens up about what it means to truly love yourself even if you’re in a place of uncertainty — and how she gets pumped up before a big performance. Steinfeld, 21, spoke to us on behalf of her work with Post-It, whose campaign is all about setting goals and dreaming big.
I think that truly loving yourself means doing what makes you happy. Doing what makes YOU feel good. Living for yourself and no one else. That speaks to really any situation. Put yourself first and know what you’re worth.
A lot of that has to do with this time we’re in where social media is very prevalent and people tend to go there for validation. I’m guilty of having done that before. It’s just a matter of putting out there what you want to put out there because you feel good about it.
For anyone struggling to feel confident, I would say to find your light. Find what makes you happy and stick to that! Know you are uniquely you and there’s nothing wrong with that.
My body-positive mantra is: If you feel good, you look good. When it comes to working out … if I don’t have a lot of time or if it’s like a matter of staying in bed longer or going to work out, I’m going to pick staying in bed! But it’s one of those things where looking good is the byproduct of feeling good, and that to me is the most important.
To chase big goals, just never give up! This is totally where I come from in terms of setting goals for myself. I write everything down. Especially when it comes to hopes, dreams and goals, it’s all about putting it out into the universe and manifesting your destiny. I read somewhere that you are 42 percent more likely to achieve goals and dreams if you write them down. It works for me!
I’m currently in the middle of a tour right now, which is amazing. It was a goal of mine to get out on the road this year so I am very happy that it’s a dream that’s coming true!
I tell myself this 100 times a day — everything happens for a reason. And I truly believe that.
