The Twitter account for E! Online was hacked Saturday by a group which quickly began spreading bogus 140-character bits of celebrity gossip to its 5 million followers.

“Exclusive: Justin Bieber to E!online: I’m a gay,” the E! Online account announced — prompting 1,200 retweets and 351 favorites.

A group billing itself as the Syrian Electronic Army claimed responsibility for the takeover. The SEA was also behind the April hijacking of The Associated Press Twitter feed.

The cyberhackers support Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime, the Wall Street Journal reported. Their other hacking targets include Twitter accounts for “60 Minutes,” the BBC, NPR and Reuters.
