In case you were wondering what the hell was going on with Lil Wayne on Twitter last night… worry no more! Wayne is the latest victim of hackers who illegally accessed his twitter account and managed to post a series of shocking messages to Weezy’s millions of followers.
Lil Wayne’s account is now listed as “suspended for suspicious activity” after being hacked by the internet pranksters, who sent a number of questionable messages to his fans and famous followers.
The rapper’s page is said to have been illegally accessed sometime Sunday afternoon (January 16), and a series of strange posts were subsequently sent out.
The hacker sent rude messages to several of Wayne’s celebrity pals, including 50 Cent, Soulja Boy and The Game. It was all fun and games until the hacker begin making explicit implications about the the hitmaker’s recent stint in prison on weapons possession charges.
