SYDNEY: Former Australian cricket star Shane Watson’s Twitter account was hacked on Friday. In addition to a series of objectionable tweets, the account’s profile picture and name were also changed.
Watson’s account was active for nearly half-an-hour during which there were a series of tweets, which included fat-shaming statements and racial slurs among others. Watson’s name was also changed to ‘crimin.al.’
After fans raised an alarm, Watson’s account was restored to its original status, and all the offensive tweets were deleted.
Here are some of the tweets from the hacked account:
