Last night, Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter account was hacked by a Turkish hacker who replaced the megastar's display picture with that of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. Big B's bio was also modified to 'Actor ... well at least some are STILL saying so !! Love Pakistan".
Reportedly, the handle was attacked by 'pro-Pakistan' Turkish hacker group, 'Ayyildiz Tim'.
Hateful Tweets Posted From Big B's Hacked Account
The hackers even posted hateful tweets against India. One of them read, "The Indian State, who mercilessly attacks the Muslims fasting in the month of Ramadan, is attacking the Ummah Muhammad in this age! Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid." The following tweet read: "We are waiting for your support."
The pinned tweet on Big B's Twitter handle was posted by "Ayyldz Tim Turkish Cyber Army". It read, "This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of Iceland republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about the big Cyber attack here. As Ayyldz Tim Turkish Cyber Armny +++."
If that wasn't enough, the hacker even posted two pictures of Imran Khan with a caption that read, "Love Imraan Khan" which was followed with emojis of Pakistan and Turkey. All the tweets have now been deleted from Big B's Twitter account.
