Former WWE star Gene Snitsky claimed Tuesday afternoon that his Twitter account was hacked after a homophobic diatribe was posted minutes earlier in response to widespread criticism over his unfavorable view of The Miz. He claims the account fell into the wrong hands and that he actually has the utmost respect for the WWE Superstar.
“It’s come to my attention someone has hacked my acct!!! Some people just have way too much time on their hands! Ill b deleting this acct,” he wrote.
“Sorry if this acct has fallin into the wrong hands! Thanks to all my wonderful fans!!!!! Keep an eye out for new acct coming soon!
“I personally have the utmost respect for mike and enjoyed workin w him! Im sure he will say the same! Sorry again for twitter hackers!
“Ill do my best to find out who is Responsible, im truely sorry to those who were offended! Thanks again! From the REAL Snitsky.”
He deleted the account shortly after his post. Coincidentally, the hacker’s diatribe and Snitsky’s apology both originated from an iPhone in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania.
