AceShowbiz - Hip-hop star Big Sean has poked fun at himself after falling victim to Twitter hackers over the weekend.
The MC briefly lost control of his microblogging account on Saturday, July 07, when fans noticed a series of strange tweets pop up on his timeline.
"Might hack 6ix9ine or Lil Pump," read the first message, referencing the rap newcomers. "10k Rts (retweets) and we'll do it hahahahaha (sic)."
The cybercriminals continued to pose as the Bounce Back hitmaker as they repeatedly called out Lil Pump, and then dragged Sean's ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, into the conversation, claiming to have obtained nude photos of the singer, before going even further by alleging the former couple had been sleeping together behind her new fiance Pete Davidson's back.
"Ariana Grande been cheating on Pete with me that p**sy A1 (sic)," they wrote.
They also claimed to have acquired explicit bedroom footage of Sean, which they threatened to leak if enough people followed one of their other accounts, through which they also shared an incomplete version of a song purportedly set to be a Big Sean collaboration with DJ Khaled and Chris Brown.
"Yo @BigSean thanks for the music dawg (sic)," read the audio caption. "It got chris brown, big sean and khaled on that s**t, but big sean aint do his verses yet, enjoy (sic)".
It's not clear if the sex tape actually exists or if the song is a new project, but Sean soon managed to regain access to his account and had all of the unauthorised tweets removed. The accounts the hackers had urged fans to follow have also been suspended by Twitter officials.
The rapper later took to Instagram to share a photo of himself staring off into the distance at London's Wireless Festival, where he performed on Saturday, and laughed off the hack attack in the accompanying caption.
"Me thinkin (sic) of a better password than my usual 3 letter words," he wrote beside the snap, adding a crying with laughter emoji.
Big Sean previously dated Ariana for eight months until early 2015, while he has since found love with singer Jhene Aiko.
