Sydney: The website of Fox News reportedly went into a funny-scary mode then it started posting stories with headlines claiming `World Zombie Day` to bring out the living dead and Apple unveiling a `Maverick Sea Lion`, after what was revealed as an internal error.

The news outlet`s homepage accidentally displayed numerous fake but funny headlines in the US after accidentally turning live a homepage prototype.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, initially many believed it to be a hack-attack.

Initially, many believed Fox News` website had been hacked.

The glitch continued for about half an hour and the main story on the homepage carried `Weeeeeeee` for its headline and `Stuff yo` for the story description.

Fox News chief digital officer Jeff Misenti explained that during the routine maintenance, a homepage prototype was accidentally moved to the actual site, but engineers quickly brought the site back to its normal function.

By then, the Twitter world had gone topsy-turvy, with users saying AMC behind the perceived hack.
