Lil Wayne’s Twitter Account Hacked and Reclaimed
Lil Wayne has been Twitter hacked. The Young Money leader, who typically keeps his presence on the social networking site to a minimum, suddenly started posting dozens of bizarre and uncharacteristic messages Sunday afternoon (Jan. 16) to more than a million followers. It quickly became clear that Weezy wasn't behind the errant tweets, but that didn't stop the hacker from doing some damage.
After his Twitter handle changed from "LilTunechi" to "LilChineTu," the perpetrator poked some fun at Wayne's peers, replying to Soulja Boy and making reference to the poor sales of his latest album 'The DeAndre Way.' "I sent a donations to your paypal, check it, I heard you got 13,000 sales lil homie, i feel bad for you! #DamnSoulja," wrote the hacker.
He also set his sights on other rappers including 50 Cent, Fat Joe and Game, sending comedic messages about past collaborations. "@thegame you still owe me money for that My Life joint, how your family crip but you blood," he wrote, then moving on to Fat Joe. "@JOEYCRACKTS you fat ass nigga it on when i see you Why."
The tweets got a little too serious, going so far as to claim that Wayne was sexually abused in prison. "The real reason I made 6'7 is cuz that's how tall the nigga in rikers was that raped me," tweeted the impersonator, also making reference to a romantic relationship between him and Cash Money kingpin Baby. "I went an entire year with kissing baby #withdrawls."
After hours of Twitter hijinks, Lil Wayne finally reclaimed the account, canceling the old profile and launching a new one under the handle "LilTunechi_YM."
