Back in hack? Yesterday, Amy Winehouse’s official website was hacked by what appeared to be a cheery gang of Lil B fans. Just one day after the internet-savvy rapper released long-anticipated new album I’m Gay (I’m Happy), Winehouse’s webpage was manipulated to show a picture of the MC, blinking text, an all-caps rant and based-centric messages like “Swagger Security” and “Winehouse = No Swag.”

The hacking group calls themselves Swagsec—a portmanteau of the rapper’s favorite adjective and the “security” suffix beloved by hot hacking crew LulzSec. On their official Twitter account, Swagsec describes themselves as “a team of homosexual negroes” from Harlem, New York, who call Winehouse a “racist crackhead devil bitch.” Currently, Winehouse’s site redirects to her Facebook page.
