*Soulja Boy says his Facebook account was hacked – and that’s why there was suddenly a mean-spirited rant that appeared on his page this week, in which he railed against all of his FB haters.

Soulja tells TMZ: “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 labeled as a racist and homophobic person.”

As previously reported, the rant questioned people who “like” an artist on Facebook who they really don’t like.

The rant stated…

“DAMN YALL ALREADY GOT MONEY AND LIVING RIGHT STOP HOLDING US BLACK PEOPLE DOWN TRYING TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE WITH THEIR LIVES! YALL BEEN f*ckING WITH US SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME. if I don’t like a artist im not going to like their facebook and talk to them. use common sense and stop being stupid.”

“IM TIRED OF WHITE PEOPLE DOING US LIKE THIS MAN!! THEY TREAT US SO WRONG!! f*ck THEM MAN ON GOD!! f*ck THEM FOR LIKING A BLACK MANS FACEBOOK JUST TO TALK sh*t!! f*ck RACIST I HATE YOU”

“haters are so f*cking stupid! “i dont like soulja boy so im gonna like his facebook and wait till he post a video to be the 1st one to comment” n***a get the fuck out of here go get some p**y and stop being a lame”
