Yvonne Nelson's nasty Twitter rant a 'hack'

12 October 2013, 15:52

Abuja - Yvonne Nelson's has claimed her Twitter account was hacked on Thursday after her account tweeted nasty messages to "Proud bastard" Nigerian celebrities.

The Ghanaian actress took shots at former BBA winner Karen Igho and "her silicon breasts" and rapper-turned-pop singer Skales but Yvonne Nelson was quick to delete the tweets right after announcing "I've been hacked!" Interestingly, her account also tweeted at popular blogger Linda Ikeji, saying "You're next."

Nelson, who is currently in New York, has however regained control of her account and tendered an apology.

"To all those who's names were mentioned....the insults were not from me.....my acc was compromised...sorry for any inconvenience..... Yn. (sic)"

She also had a word for the hackers; "Mr/Miss hacker....next time be bold and brave enough to use your own account to disrespect people.......very rude and inappropriate....yn*. (sic)"

Yvonne Nelson's apology doesn't hold water in Karen Igho's world as the latter feels Nelson is just seeking attention. Karen fired back on Twitter.

"What's your name again? Who da beep cares! Maybe you should get your dried up boobs done and then musicians will stop dumping your boney ass! Attention seekers claiming their account was hacked! That's a lame ass excuse for a publicity stunt! Grow up."
