Nobody’s protected from hacking, and it appears Lakers owner Jeanie Buss was the most recent victim on Tuesday.
Fans were perplexed when Buss’ Twitter account began pushing a viral video game scam. After which, she sent out a message to Laker Nation via the team’s official handle letting them know that she was hacked.
“Lakers Fans, my Twitter account has been hacked,” Buss tweeted. “Please don’t engage with it or send any money. These are NOT legitimate offers. The Lakers will provide you with a warning once I am back accountable for my account.”
The NBA world had some fun with Buss’ hacking on social media.
“Jeanie Buss’ Twitter really got hacked and have a look at this amazing interaction,” tweeted one account. “‘I’ll tackle Westbrook’s contract as well for those who include SpiderMan.’”
“LeBron and AD tryna help Jeanie Buss get her account back,” said Josiah Johnson.
“You hacked Jeanie Buss to speak about selling PS5s as a substitute of announcing [Kyrie] is a Laker missed opportunity not gone lie,” one other tweeted.
“The Jeanie Buss hacker after not giving any PS5s.”
We’ll see how long it takes Buss to get her account back.
