Wikipedia Hacked After Ledger Death

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment yesterday (Jan. 22), but not everyone was paying their respects.

Several minutes after Ledger’s death was reported, his wikipedia.org page was embedded with a picture of a giant penis, presumably placed on his page by a hacker.

The explicit image could’ve been a pun referring to Ledger’s critically acclaimed role as a gay cowboy in the 2006 Oscar-winning film, Brokeback Mountain.
