Turkish hackers take over Amitabh Bachchan's twitter account

MUMBAI – The twitter account of India’s legendary actor Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, was hacked by a Turkish hacker group on Monday night.

The first tweet from Big B’s hacked account reads as, "This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of Iceland republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about the big Cyber attack here. As Ayyıldız Tim Turkish Cyber Armny +++".

The second post read, “The Indian State, who mercilessly attacks the Muslims fasting in the month of Ramadan, is attacking the Ummah Muhammad in this age! Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid.”

And as the Tweets continue to go viral, the Big B's display picture has been replaced with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's picture.

Mumbai police said they “informed our cyber unit and Maharashtra Cyber about the hacked Twitter account of Amitabh Bachchan” and were investigating the matter.

All the tweets (posted by the hacker) were later removed from the actor's account.

Earlier, Abhishek Bachchan's social media account has also been attacked by the same hacker group, which goes by the name of Ayyildiz Tim.
