Black Lives Matter leader and former Baltimore mayoral candidate DeRay McKesson shocked his Twitter followers Friday when he informed them that he is “not actually black” and endorsed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

It turns out, however, that McKesson’s account was accessed by a hacker who broke into his phone.

Earlier Friday, McKesson described in detail exactly what happened and how he was eventually able to got back into his phone.
