Peppa Pig World Apologises After 'Go To Hell' Message Appears On Facebook Page

Peppa Pig apologises to kids after 'go to hell' message

A Facebook page dedicated to children's TV favourite Peppa Pig has issued an apology after a message appeared on the site telling children to 'go to hell'.

The rude message appeared on the official page for the Peppa Pig World attraction in Southampton after it was apparently targeted by hackers.

"Unfortunately the Peppa Pig World Facebook page has been compromised," a spokesman said.

"We are looking into the situation asap, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused."

The Facebook page has been filled with spam emails, random links and pictures over the past three days, sparking angry comments from upset adults.

"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," said one.

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

A Peppa Pig spokesman added: "We remain in contact with Facebook and are doing everything we can to resolve the issue.

"The page has continued to experience spam posts but we are relieved that they appear to be inoffensive at present."

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