Several vulgar tweets were posted from Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Twitter account on Thursday afternoon in an apparent hacking. The tweets were deleted within minutes and Antetokounmpo’s account was locked shortly thereafter.
One tweet said, “I’m going to the warriors” but the rest appear to be crude.
The official Bucks Twitter account confirmed the hacking and said an investigation is underway.

NBA Twitter wasted absolutely no time coming in with jokes.
Giannis’ Twitter password must’ve been “Antetokounmpo34”

I mean, Giannis getting hacked in May isn’t exactly a new concept

Giannis is making even more history as the first NBA player to claim “I was hacked” after tweeting something offensive and actually be telling the truth.
