Hackers gained access to NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo’s social media and bank accounts on Thursday posting a series of expletive-laced and racist messages from his account.
The messages included disrespectful language toward late basketball star Kobe Bryant and a claim that Antetokounmpo had tested positive for the coronavirus.
“I was hacked and the situation is currently being investigated,” the Greek Freak posted on Twitter.
“The tweets and posts were extremely inappropriate and I am so disappointed and disgusted that somebody would say the terrible things that were said!”
“Giannis’ twitter, phone, email and bank accounts were hacked!” Los Angeles Lakers forward Kostas Antetokounmpo tweeted. “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!”
The tweets weren’t up for long before disappearing from Giannis Antetokounmpo’s account. The Bucks said in a statement that an investigation is underway.
