In an unexpected twist, prominent Pakistani television host Waseem Badami became the canter of a social media storm when his X account, previously Twitter, fell victim to hacking.
While Badami has not issued a statement regarding the breach, journalist Iqrar-ul-Hassan Syed confirmed the incident on X.
The posts from Badami’s hacked account diverged significantly from his usual serious and professional online demeanor.
The unidentified hacker’s initial post greeted followers with a friendly “hello” and a heart emoticon, followed by a casual “Morning darling.”
The posts, increasingly unrelated to Badami’s typical content, hinted at potential revelations and concluded with advice on staying truthful.
Despite the glaring signs of hacking, the posts continued, leaving Badami’s followers both bewildered and amused.
The impersonator’s actions, preaching truthfulness while assuming Badami’s identity added an ironic twist to the situation.
While security concerns were raised, many users engaged playfully with the tweets, responding and reacting to the unexpected content.
As fans and followers eagerly await a post from Waseem Badami himself after regaining control of his account, the incident serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerability of even renowned personalities in the face of online security challenges.
