John Legend’s Twitter Was Hacked in a Tirade Against President Trump
While Hillary Clinton was busy making some very intentional pro-Democratic statements, another famous liberal, John Legend, was making some, erm, rather derogatory ones against President Trump… except it wasn’t really him. (Or at least not all of it.)
While even wife Chrissy Teigen seemed skeptical, writing back, “Mmhmm,” to Legend’s claim of the hack, the series of now-deleted Tweets that followed were later spoken for by an unverified, now-suspended Twitter user named @Owen755, who reportedly Tweeted from his own account, “That was fun.”
The Tweets in question used plenty of profanity in reference to POTUS, and also made threats against him.
Legend seemed to take the whole thing in stride, saying he’d aim to be funnier so no one felt the need to ghostwrite on his behalf, though he WAS also quick to note that he would never make threats against the President.
He also attempted an air of humor while refuting a Tweet which came from his account that referred to Trump as a Cheeto (though he DID admit to calling him the “Liar-in-Chief” of his own accord).
Apparently, Legend was personally victimized by the hacker, as well, as he changed his bio to include a tagline that was… less than flattering with regard to his “endowment.” An eagle-eyed fan spotted the change and sent it to Teigen (who, of course, because she’s Chrissy, retweeted it for the world to see).
Ay yi yi! It sounds like it was a rather eventful evening in the Legend-Teigen household!
