In case you occurred to be on Twitter throughout a selected 10-15 minute stretch Thursday afternoon, you may need seen some uncharacteristic, disturbing and racist tweets from the account of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Make no mistake, although, these weren’t Antetokounmpo’s ideas or phrases. The Milwaukee Bucks star and reigning NBA Most worthy participant was hacked.

In line with Antetokounmpo’s longtime girlfriend, Mariah Riddlespringer, and his brother, Kostas, the assault wasn’t simply on Antetokounmpo’s social media. Each posted the identical message after the hacked tweets had been deleted.

“Giannis’ twitter, cellphone, electronic mail and financial institution accounts had been hacked!” they wrote. “He genuinely apologizes for all the things that was tweeted and he shall be again as quickly as potential! The issues that had been mentioned by this hacker had been extraordinarily inappropriate and disgusting!”

It was clear from the outset that the tweets didn’t originate from Antetokounmpo.

There was nothing nuanced or clever in regards to the tweets. The hacker as an alternative spewed a collection of hate-filled textual content, together with racist language, an assertion that Giannis Antetokounmpo had been recognized with coronavirus, disrespect directed towards late NBA star Kobe Bryant — Antetokounmpo’s basketball idol — and a number of false and crass statements about different NBA gamers.

The Bucks introduced that an investigation into the hack is underway.

Antetokounmpo regained entry to his Twitter account on Thursday evening and posted the next message:

“Hey all people! I am again and want to tackle the social media incident from earlier at this time! I used to be hacked and the scenario is at the moment being investigated. The tweets and posts had been extraordinarily inappropriate and I’m so disillusioned and disgusted that any individual would say the horrible issues that had been mentioned.

“I really feel horrible that the Bucks, Khris (Middleton), Lebron (James) and the Curry household had been included within the malicious and unfaithful tweets. I really feel particularly horrible for the Bryant household, throughout their time of grief they shouldn’t be subjected to one of these negativity and foul conduct. Thanks all for all the time supporting my household and I, and please keep protected!”It was clear from the outset that the tweets didn’t originate from Antetokounmpo.
