The NBA Playoffs can be a very stressful time. The last thing someone like Chris Paul needs is for his social media to get hacked. That is what happened following the Suns’ third game against the LA Lakers in the Playoffs.

The Suns took the series lead back from the Lakers in game three of the opening round on Thursday. Chris Paul played 27 minutes in the game and scored seven points. He’s not 100% right now, but that wasn’t his biggest concern.

Someone hacked Chris Paul’s Twitter account and sent out about 30 tweets to blast the LA Lakers. Whoever did it was not a Lakers fan at all, but Chris Paul says it wasn’t him.

Dozens of these NSFW messages flooded the timelines of Chris Paul’s followers. They ranged from him saying: “F*ck them Lakers, they f*cking suck,” to telling internet gossip YouTuber Keemstar to STFU. You can check out the screenshots below to see everything that the hacker tweeted out.


We’re not sure what happened here, but Chris Paul probably needs to pick a stronger password.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
