New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has posted a bizarre tweet where he claims that someone compromised his internet protocol (IP) address and then used it to download child pornography.

Krugman’s tweet claiming that his IP address was compromised and used to download child porn

The full tweet reads:

“Well, I’m on the phone with my computer security service, and as I understand it someone compromised my IP address and is using it to download child pornography. I might just be a random target. But this could be an attempt to Qanon me. It’s an ugly world out there.”

Journalist Mike Cernovich said he was “BEWILDERED” by the tweet and that “It makes absolutely no sense to make something like this public.”

“That’s… not how any of this works,” said tech journalist Mikael Thalen.

Others have also expressed their shock that Krugman would post something like this publicly.
