Drake Twitter Hacked (PHOTO)
Drake’s Twitter account was hacked on Monday, making him at least the third celebrity in the last week to have such a security breach. See screengrab below.
Shortly before noon, someone obtained control of Drake’s Twitter account and posted, “add http://www.snapchat.com/add/aidenyeah for a follow.” A second tweet read, “follow @2aiden3 for a follow.” Both messages were quickly deleted, but not before they were liked or retweeted by hundreds of people.
It’s not clear who was behind the stunt, as the “@2aiden3” account is now suspended. Drake has not commented on the hacking. The last real posting from the singer remains a retweet from Saturday about his new song, “4PM In Calabasas.”
The hacking came just hours after Kylie Jenner also had her own Twitter account hacked. On Sunday, a number of vulgar tweets were sent from her handle. Jenner deleted them, and went on to note on Snapchat, “So my Twitter was hacked. And I don’t really care. I’m just letting them have fun.”
And that happened less than a week after Katy Perry’s account was hacked with tweets including racial and homophobic slurs, along with another directed to Taylor Swift. Perry ultimately regained control, but her name ended up becoming a trending topic. It’s not clear if these three cases are connected, or are merely coincidental.
