Soulja Boy has now released a statement to clarify that the messages did not come from either him or his team.

He tells TMZ.com, "I wanted to clear the air and let everyone know that my Facebook got hacked. I had administrators on my account that no longer work with me. The hackers used these old accounts to post hateful messages. This was not done by me or anyone on my team and I'm upset that I am being labelled as a racist and homophobic person."
