Dancing With The Stars contestant Emily Scott’s public Facebook page was briefly hacked this evening, with offensive messages and images being posted in her name.  

Scott – a glamour model and DJ – is rEmily Scott Facebook hackaising money for The Aids Trust of Australia during Seven’s celebrity dance contest, which began earlier this month.

Previously, most of the recent  updates on her page had related to the show. But the offensive messages began to appear at about 6pm, although it appears that in the last few minutes her management have regained control of the account and the messages have been taken down.

(Update: See the comment thread below. The page itself wasn’t hacked, but a fake profile, also called Emily Scott, was able to post unmoderated messages which appeared to come from the real person until Scott’s management complained to Facebook and the profile was remvoed.)
