A tweet from Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters account that many interpreted as an endorsement of Hillary Clinton has disappeared as quickly as a phantom.

The studio tweeted "Boo-yah, we smashed your glass ceiling," on Thursday after Clinton became the first woman to lead a major U.S. political party.

The message also had the hashtag "ImWithHer," a Clinton campaign motto. By Friday, it had been deleted.

A spokeswoman for Sony told the Los Angeles Times that the tweet "was never intended to be a political endorsement."

The all-female version of Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as a ghost-fighting foursome.
