Comedian Sarah Silverman probably wasn't laughing when she opened her Twitter account today to discover she had been hacked.

The now deleted tweet included the message, "America, are you awakening?" along with a video titled "Anonymous - A Message to Hillary Clinton." The tweet included the hashtags #Hilary4Prison and #Anonymous, according to a screen grab posted by Mashable.

Silverman posted in all caps this morning: "MY TWITTER ACCT GOT HACKED THIS IS NOT ME ."

The hack comes after Silverman told booing Bernie Sanders supporters they were being "ridiculous" during her speech Monday night at the Democratic National Convention.

The comedian backed the Vermont senator during the primary but said Clinton has her full support in the general election.
