Hackers still got time, even during a global pandemic.
Milwaukee Bucks’ superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo had to change all of his passwords and activate that two-step verification. The Greek Freak’s Twitter account was hacked and let off some pretty wild tweets that had raised the eyebrows of his followers. Before they were deleted, some of the tweets during a 10-15 minute stretch that took shots at LeBron James directly mentioning the Lakers star and claiming he hired a hitman on Giannis.
The hacker sent out a bevy of troubling tweets “f*ck Kobe Bryant. #bodied”, dissed Giannis’ teammate Khris Middleton, claiming he caught coronavirus and blaming Asians and using an ethnic slur, saying he was going to the Warriors and even saying he had sex with Steph Curry’s wife.
Immediately fans knew the Giannis’ account was hacked, and Antetokounmpo’s longtime girlfriend, Mariah Riddlespringer, and his brother, Kostas, confirmed their suspicions. They even revealed that Giannis’ email, bank account, and phone were also comprised. “He genuinely apologizes for everything that was tweeted, and he will be back as soon as possible! The things that were said by this hacker were extremely inappropriate and disgusting!” they added.
While this is a serious matter, you know Twitter had jokes, immediately wondering if the NBA’s Most Valuable Player used the same password for all of his accounts. Regardless the reactions are quite comical, you can peep them all below, and Giannis, you gotta get you some stronger passwords.
