Hackers Replace Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter Photo with Imran Khan

Poor Big B.

Amitabh Bachchan must have had a sleepless night as his Twitter just got hacked yesterday. The hackers took this opportunity to take the term ‘keyboard warrior’ to the next level.

We keep hearing of data leaks and privacy issues in this digital age. We all think that it couldn’t happen to us, and then someone just goes and demonstrates that not even a high-profile celeb like Amitabh Bachchan is safe.

When Big B’s account was hacked yesterday, Twitter went into overdrive. We got some priceless and witty reactions as well.

Here’s what the hacked account tweeted, going all political:

The Hackers

If it wasn’t already clear at this point, the hackers were Turkish, (or so they wanted us to think so). The Turkish flag in a tweet about Indian social disparity and then highlighting an issue specific to Turkish footballers, it doesn’t get more obvious than this.

The hackers identified themselves as ‘Ayyildiz Tim Turkish Cyber Army’ or Turkish Cyber Army (ironically hacking is an Icelandic specialty).

These hackers are fanboys (or maybe fan-girls) of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan. They replaced the display picture of Amitabh Bachchan with that of Imran Khan.

Some Indians, as usual, pinned it on Pakistan.

Some suggested a collaboration.

Or was it a ‘Major Adnan Sami strikes again!

More people ‘confirmed’ it was our not so secret ‘undercover agent’.

What if Big B was a mole all along?

Not everyone loved the bromance.

Speaking of romance, we’re wondering who did this?

Other hilarious comments include:

Another real reaction. Good thing the tweets were deleted, but screenshots are forever:

Amitabh Regains Control of Twitter Account

The account was later recovered and order was restored. There were some side effects on Big B’s attitude though.

And the theories come rolling in……..

At least we got some good laughs out of the whole thing. Amitabh Bachchan not so much.
