Gerry Adams survived the RUC, the UVF, and British intelligence. This tweet he may not. https://t.co/z27Ncntkkr

Ireland’s Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams is under fire tonight after these two now deleted tweets — apparently related to the film “Django Unchained” — briefly appeared on his verified Twitter account:

How come Larry Wilmore can use that word & Gerry Adams can't. It's obvious who the real racists are.

Gerry Adams' tweets are famously unrestrained but this will surely hasten his retirement. https://t.co/b98onoGWHC

Maybe he was hacked?
I'd humbly suggest we keep in mind the possibility that Gerry Adams lost control of his account–as sometimes happens on twitter.

We’ll update as soon as we know more. Here’s the last tweet from his timeline tonight which translates to “Time 4 bed.”
