Patrick Stewart’s Twitter profile was hacked by a porn bot on Monday.

The 76-year-old actor has 2.3 million followers on the social media site, with fans quick to comment as some unsavory messages appeared on his page.

The first indication that something wasn’t right was when his profile picture changed to an image of a blonde girl, while the name read Rebecca Slater.

X-rated messages then began to appear, the first showing a shot of a naked woman standing in a bath asking if anyone wanted to see more, alongside an attached link. A second post showed a woman crouched on all fours, while wearing a T-shirt and underwear.

Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper report the actor was the victim of a porn bot – a spam program most often found in chat rooms which shares suggestive images and links to adult websites.

Patrick’s representatives noticed the hack within 10 minutes, with the actor’s profile picture then changed back to the generic Twitter egg image.

Patrick is the latest star to have fallen victim to a social media hack. Earlier on Monday Liam Payne’s girlfriend Cheryl’s Instagram page was targeted, with abusive messages about the former One Direction star shared on her profile.

Among the bizarre messages that popped up was one which read, “666 F**K LIAM PAYNE”, which appeared alongside an image of an upside down cross, an anti-Christian symbol. Three photographs and messages, one of which identified the hackers responsible as the ‘Cyber Wolf Gang’, were removed after roughly 15 minutes.
