A court hearing for the Florida teenager accused of being behind last month's major Twitter hack was interrupted with pornography.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
The hearing took place over video chat app Zoom, but had to be suspended after repeated interruptions.
The 17-year-old was asking for a lower bail amount, after pleading not guilty to the charges on Tuesday.
But Zoom users - changing their names to mimic CNN and BBC News employees - dropped in to the meeting uninvited.
Florida newspaper the Tampa Bay Times reported that the "interruptions grew so frequent… Hillsborough Circuit Judge Christopher C Nash ended the Zoom hearing temporarily".
However, the interruptions resumed when the hearing did.
Some attendees played music down the line. Another used Zoom's screen-sharing feature to play pornography, which reporters said was the final straw that suspended the meeting.
