Hackers Replace Donald Trump's Wikipedia Picture With Image Of Penis

Hopefully, for your sake, you didn't ask Siri any questions regarding Donald Trump on Thursday because we doubt you've slept since if you did.

That's because hackers had changed the US president's Wikipedia picture to one of an actual peen. Which is not ideal to say the very least.

The people behind this entire fiasco pulled the prank throughout the entirety of Thanksgiving Day - so, here's to hoping none of you were mid-turkey when you came across the image.

According to The Verge, anyone asking Apple's Siri for details on the 72-year-old may have been faced with the shocking picture of an unknown guy's manhood.

It is thought that someone was playing the practical joke and editing the Wikipedia page associated with Trump, or messing with the algorithm that Siri uses.

If you look at the history of the page, you can see how various edits are reversed over the course of Thursday evening.

According to the MailOnline, in the early hours of Friday, the protection levels for Trump's profile were requested to be higher, quoting 'compromised accounts'.

An editor from Wikipedia spoke to The Verge over direct message, confirming that it was vandalism at play. They said: "They have now been blocked indefinitely."

This isn't the first time something Donald Trump associates with has been vandalised.

A few months ago the President's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed overnight by someone using a pickaxe.

CBS Chicago has reported that the vandal apparently called the police to report the destruction which was reported at about 3:30am.

Photos posted online show a pickaxe on the floor next to the star, which was surrounded by chunks of debris from a jagged hole in the ground.

Los Angeles police officers were stood nearby while cleaners swept up the mess caused.

It is being reported that the suspect concealed the pickaxe in a guitar case before smashing the star and running off.

One witness, Patricia Cox, told CBS Chicago: "I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever. I didn't know what was going on."

A few months later, Trump's star was put 'behind bars' for a brief period after a repeat vandal defaced it - yet again.

Street artist known as 'Plastic Jesus' placed wooden bars designed to resemble a jail cell over the star, according to the Los Angeles Times - and posted a photo with the caption: "Trump behind bars. Finally".

Somehow, we don't see this ending any time soon.
