Famed wrestler Bill Goldberg claimed Wednesday that his Twitter account was targeted by hackers following a string of tweets that threatened President Trump.

In one since-deleted tweet, the WWE Hall of Famer challenged Mr. Trump to a fight, TMZ reported.

“Why have you been threating [sic] me and my wife you d—k head just because you’re the president doesn’t mean you can make threats using your new found power we should go into the ring together no secret service just you and me,” the tweet reportedly read.

“I challange [sic] you to a fist fight you spatastic [sic] s—t head ill f—king kill you,” a second tweet reportedly read.

Another tweet captured by Twitchy appeared to proposition first daughter Ivanka Trump, claiming that her husband, Jared Kushner, had a sexual relationship with Mr. Goldberg’s wife.

A tweet claiming he had been hacked remained on Mr. Goldberg’s account as of Wednesday afternoon. His rep, “Uncle Louie” Gregory, told TMZ that Mr. Goldberg was targeted by “anti-Trump hackers.”

“The Official Goldberg twitter continues to be a target for opportunistic hackers with bad intentions who are seeking notoriety and revenue,” Mr. Gregory said in a statement. “Team Goldberg will continue to address this issue while Goldberg is in ATL with Tu Lam working on his show ‘Knife or Death’ for the History channel.”

He said Mr. Goldberg had already been in contact with the Secret Service.

According to TMZ, Mr. Goldberg was friends with Mr. Trump when he appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2010, but the two had a falling out and are no longer friends.
