Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard revealed that his social media accounts had been hacked recently, but thankfully there was minimal to no damage done while he lost control.
On Wednesday before practice, Byard told the media that both his Twitter and Instagram accounts got hacked. Luckily, whoever hacked them didn’t start posting anything inappropriate or spamming his followers with messages, which sometimes happens in these situations.
“I actually got hacked,” Byard said. “I don’t know what happened, and it has never happened before. I got hacked. I was out of Instagram as well but I was able to get back in that one fast, but Twitter is a different platform and they kind of have some verification stuff they had going on. But, yeah, I was hacked, man, I don’t know how it happened, who hacked it, why they did it. They didn’t send my followers or whatever a bunch of crazy messages so I was safe on that route.”

Byard is now back up and running on both accounts. He says he’s happy to be back on Twitter especially because he enjoys interacting with fans in the bastion of happiness and positivity that is the social media platform of Twitter.
