Michael Jordan's son Marcus hasn't had a lot of luck when it comes to Twitter. It feels like he makes headlines for using the social media site every few months. And over the weekend, that trend continued after he was allegedly hacked by someone looking to embarrass him.
Late Saturday night, a photo of Jordan's penis—or, at least, what we all thought was Jordan's penis—was tweeted out from Jordan's account. However, it was deleted just a few minutes later and replaced with a tweet that said, "#mistake my bad." That tweet was followed by a few replies to followers. And then…well, nothing. Jordan sent out a few more tweets Sunday, but no real explanation.
By last night, though, Jordan finally issued up a Twitter statement about what had happened on Saturday night. He claimed that someone had hacked into his account, posted the pic, and then also posted up the "#mistake" tweet to make it seem like it was really him posting it.
"My homies hitting me up talking about some pic that was posted from my account," he wrote. "I mean really? Y'all think I din't know how to work this?…Whoever it was posted it and deleted it…THEN posted that 'mistake' tweet on my phone…Lol Good one…But #CmonSon that ain't me…This would be my what, 3rd 'accidental' tweet…#FOH."
No, you get the FOH, Marcus. How many times are we going to go through this on Twitter?!
Fortunately, it looks like Marcus is going to get the FOH...for now. His Twitter account disappeared last night and appears to have been deleted. And you know what? That's probably for the best. For whatever reason, this guy has had a hell of a time steering clear of controversy on Twitter.
