The Twitter accounts of all three recording artists appear to have been hacked early Wednesday morning, according to MSNBC. The hacker or hackers posted messages supporting Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.
"As you would all assume, We DO NOT support Ron Paul," Rise against said in a message to fans after the posts were discovered and removed.
"No political endorsements at this time," No Doubt added.
All three artists are signed with Interscope records. Kelly Clarkson and Michelle Branch, who are on different labels, have unofficially thrown their support behind Paul, which may have tempted Paul-supporting hackers to go ne step further in portraying him as a rock star candidate.
We've reached out to Interscope and Paul's campaign staff for comment and will update when we hear back from them.
MSNBC said the first Tweet on No Doubt's twitter account read "Today We Officially Endorse Ron Paul 2012" and included a link to a site to make donations.
A follow up Tweet reading "If you actually read what Ron Paul is saying, you will discover that for the first time in your life a politician is not lying to you" was posted a short time later.
