As Michelle Obama delivered a powerful speech on CNN addressing the sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump, a pro-Trump hacker took over Hillary Clinton's Wikipedia page with an NSFW photo of a woman's bare ass.

The hacker claims partnership with a hacking group called the Gay N*gger Association of America, or GNAA. The group is best known for an attack on Tumblr in 2012, in which they sent racist spam to bloggers as part of an operation called "War on Bronies." 

"Reminder that voting for Hillary Clinton this November means proving how much of a spineless, boring cuck you are," alleged hacker Meepsheep wrote on the Wikipedia page. "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 ass pics to @Meepysheepy." 

The hacker taking credit for the Wikipedia page is Meepsheep, whose Twitter page features proclamations supporting the alt-right and Trump. Meepsheep also retweeted messages pointing to the Wikipedia hack.

The hacker's webpage features a photo of George W. Bush with the quote "make America great again." 

As of 1:20 p.m., Clinton's Wikipedia page was back to normal.

"The problem has been fixed by now," a Wikipedia volunteer editor said in an email. "We are extremely sorry that you had to see that. What happened was that a redirect to something commonly used in Wikipedia was changed to CSS code which contained the image, resulting in transclusions."

"The Wikimedia community takes vandalism very seriously," a Wikimedia Foundation spokesperson said in an email. "The vast majority of Wikipedia articles are not vandalized. However, occasionally high traffic or popular articles can attract vandalism, leading Wikipedia editors to quickly revert and limit the amount of editing to an article — which is what has happened here."

The spokesperson added that this vandalism lasted "only a matter of minutes" and that the article is now permanently protected so that only "template editors" or admins can edit it.

Meepsheep reached out to Mic in a tweet in response to the article.
