The official Twitter profile of American singer, songwriter, rapper, dancer and actress, Teyana Taylor, was taken over by a hacker who tweeted “mean and hurtful things” and leaking private pictures of the celebrity.
Voice of Grey Hat
can’t confirm if the R rated pictures that allegedly feature Taylor are genuine mostly because the face of the person in the pictures is covered, but the singer’s statement hints that they are.
She claimed that the entire incident began after her phone, which was connected to her Twitter account, was stolen.
Here’s Taylor statement
regarding the incident:
Look I'm human, & just like every girl in this world, I admire my body so i take pics just like EVERY other human being. However my phone that was stolen Witch my phone was also connected to my twitter.
So i guess the hacker felt the need to have a field day and leaked personal photos, and also tweet mean & hurtful things about me. I ain't gone front It really hurt my feelings that someone would be so evil and mean. I would never leak photos like that of my self.
I have so many blessings and opportunities ahead of me & I have way more class & respect for my self as a young woman. So there's no need to seek attention. But I sincerely apologize to all my supporters and followers who had to witness the devil at work, and at what he does best. Karma is a $&@# but I'll let God handle that. that's it that's all.
This is not the first time a celebrity’s Twitter account is taken over by hacker. The accounts of NBC News, Fox News Politics, USAToday, Anders Breivik, and the Huffington Post
were all at some point breached by hackers.
One of the latest victims, Ashton Kutcher
, retaliated against the hacker and threatened to track him down.
