WTVD, the ABC-owned station in Raleigh-Durham had to let viewers know a hacker wasn’t responsible for the name of a presidential candidate.

“No, we were not hacked. ‘Deez Nuts’ is the legal name of the candidate and he is polling at 9 percent in NC”

From the station website:

The new PPP poll revealed independent candidate Deez Nuts is polling at 9 percent in the Tar Heel state. Running as an independent from Wallingford, Iowa; population 197, Deez Nuts has gone viral and has a large fan base.
