Alex Saratsis, agent for Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, confirmed the reigning NBA MVP’s Twitter account was hacked on Thursday, per ESPN’s Eric Woodyard.
The announcement comes in the wake of a series of insensitive tweets made from Antetokounmpo’s account that included racist and derogatory language.
According to Kostas, Giannis’ brother, the hacker got into Giannis’ twitter, phone, email and bank accounts.
“He genuinely apologizes for everything that was tweeted and he will be back as soon as possible,” Kostas wrote on Twitter. “The things that were said by this hacker were extremely inappropriate and disgusting!”
Kostas posted responses to each of the tweets that “someone hacked this account” and Giannis “didn’t post this.”
