The Game's Telephone Flash Mob Prank Gone Wrong
Twitter handle: @thegame
Date: Aug. 13, 2011
Welcome to another edition of when Twitter pranks go wrong. Here, you have the case of The Game encouraging his followers to call a phone number inquiring about an internship opportunity with the rapper. The only problem is the number he left was a direct line for the Compton sheriff’s department. Feeling the heat from Bureau Captain Mike Parker, who messaged Jayceon to take down the number, Game folded and ranted in typical fashion: “I can see it now: ‘What u in 4 homie.. robbery. What about u dog… Murder. Aye… What u in here 4 game… (Pokes Chest Out) A TWEET’ !!!” Find it ironic that The R.E.D. Album was set to drop a week after? Of course not. Shameless stunt.
