Jeep-lovers were surprised Tuesday when the company's official account claimed the company had been bought out by Cadillac because Jeep's CEO smokes illegal drugs.

The American automobile maker appears to have been the victim of a Twitter hack, one day after someone hacked Burger King's account, claiming to be McDonald's.

Much like McDonald's did Monday, Cadillac issued an immediate statement distancing itself from the attack.

Laced with slang, all caps and expletives, the hacker used similar language to whoever took Burger King's account for more than an hour on Monday.

Among other things, the Twitter account claimed that Cadillac bought Jeep because its employees and CEOs are drug users.

The hacked account called users @LILINTERNET @DFNTSC and @GUHTI_ the "bad guys." Someone tweeting from @LILINTERNET claimed that @GUHTI_ was responsible for the hack. That account has since been suspended and later restored to its rightful owner.
