‘Donald Trump Is a Shape Shifting Lizard!!’: Multiple Road Signs Hacked Along Texas Highway

Three separate digital road signs along a Texas highway were tampered with Monday evening. The sign that stood out the most delivered a vaguely political message to drivers:


“Donald Trump is a shape shifting lizard!!” the sign read, which was captured on video and posted to Twitter by KXAS-TV’s Tim Ciesco early Tuesday morning.

That same street sign read “Party Hardy Yall!” over the weekend, Ciesco later tweeted.


A nearby sign on I-30 was hacked to read, “Bernie for president,” KXAS’s Ben Russel tweeted at around 3 a.m. Tuesday.


The third sign, also on I-30, told commuters, “Work is cancelled. Go back home.”


Texas officials told KXAS that “they thought the signs were turned off and locked before the holiday weekend,” but apparently that was not the case. The station reported that state workers began turning the signs off Tuesday shortly before 6 a.m.
