A social media account of former Federal Liberal MP, Craig Kelly shared an X-rated clip on his X/Twitter account.

Craig Kelly has become the most recent victim of ‘hacking’ with some extremely specific cyber terrorism: retweeting pornographic tweets.

A video from a pornography-based account was reposted on Sunday night, partly titled “Horny sister seduced by her brother’s friend.”

We’ve chosen not to publish the x-rated image.

It is understood that no other data, such as direct messages and other private data of the X/Twitter account @CKellyUAP was accessed, leaked online or given to media.

Yet another twist, in now what seems to be the occasional posting, liking and retweeting of explicit images and videos on X/Twitter by conservative politicians who espouse ‘family values,’ the X-rated post remained on Kelly’s account for several hours.

Kelly was posting other tweets including: “I’ve reported it to Twitter and changing passports,” claiming his account had been ‘hacked.’

He was also liking other posts on X/Twitter while the X-rated post remained.

The post was later deleted from his account, with Kelly posting: “My account is still hacked — the offensive item has been removed (it’s not on my page) but it is apparently still appearing on people’s pages.”

Other victims of alleged ‘hacking’ where explicit images are shared or ‘liked’ on social media include 2GB commentator Ben Fordham, former Liberal MP Christopher Pyne and former Liberal MP Greg Hunt.

Mr Kelly defected from the Liberal Party to Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party in 2021.

The X account claiming to be Mr Kelly’s lists his role as ‘Current National Director United Australia Party’.

“Accounts may become compromised if you’ve entrusted your username and password to a malicious third-party application or website, if your X account is vulnerable due to a weak password …” the X/Twitter help page advises users.
 

VicNews contacted the United Australia Party requesting comment.
