The official Peppa Pig Facebook page has been hacked, posting a status ending with the words "go to hell, bitch."

The update, a screenshot of a mobile phone conversation, has since been removed from the Peppa Pig World page, but not before it was shared several times.

The conversation between two people was posted as a picture and said "Love you Josh."

The initial texter then posted "John, I meant John, Autocorrect sucks!"

'John' then responded "love you" but before the situation could be resolved, the original texter said "omg Kaylee i just texted John saying I love Josh but that it was autocorrect and he totally bought it!"

John then replied: "As I said, go to hell bitch."

Angry parents slammed the update. One of them, Morgan-Leigh Cummings, wrote: "If you're posting pics like this why don't you make your own page and update as many piccys as you want,instead of hacking 'Peppa Pig World' so just grow up and get a life!!"

Julie Loader wrote: "The hacker needs to grow up and go find something better to do than hack kids park pages. Get a life!!!!!"

The theme park, based near Southampton, has rides and play areas based on the show which is shown in around 180 different countries.
