Someone Hacked John Legend’s Twitter Account
If someone as famous as John Legend is prone to online scams and hacking, what are you doing to protect yourself from malicious attacks?
John Legend is certainly one of many celebrities on Twitter whose accounts you want to follow. But his celebrity also means that he is of more interest to hackers. And that’s just what happened to the Grammy winner — his Twitter was hacked recently. While Legend and and wife Chrissy Teigen found this Twitter hack amusing, hacks aren’t often any fun.

John Legend’s Hacked Account
Once the hacker gained control of Legend’s account, he posted some amusing and disturbing messages. The poster focused on political subjects, posting tweets about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. For example, the hacker called President Trump “a Cheeto.” Some of these political posts were violent or sexual in nature, and when he regained control of his account, Legend was quick to distance himself from them.
John Legend’s Response
John Legend, like his music, was calm about the hacking. In fact, he laughed at the absurdity of the hacker’s messages. In fact, Legend himself started posting on Twitter, letting his fans know that he had been hacked. For example, he posted the Tweet: “Someone just hacked my account” to let his followers know he hadn’t been posting the bizarre messages. He then posted: “I’m back. My hacker was vulgar and kinda hilarious. I’ll try to be funnier from now on so he won’t feel the need to ghost write for me.”
Chrissy Teigen’s Response
Chrissy Teigen is one of the most popular celebrities on Twitter with her funny and true-to-life tweets. Like her husband, Teigen found the tweets funny. Teigen was clued into the attack on her husband’s social media after one of her followers private messaged her about her husband’s new Twitter bio, which described the singer’s private parts in a less-than-flattering way. It’s not surprising that this happened, though. In fact, Teigen made fun of her husband the same week his account was hacked, comparing him to the animated aardvark, Arthur, on her own Twitter account.
