WWE 2K's Facebook page was hacked tonight.
Several vulgar posts made their way onto the Facebook page and for a brief period of time, the cover photo was of Chris Benoit, the profile picture was changed to the logo of All Elite Wrestling and several pro-AEW posts were made.
You can see one of the posts, mocking the person who is in charge of the page below.

2K Games has gotten control of this issue and the Facebook page is back to normal. Their social media team issued the following statement via Twitter:
