Former Pakistan cricketer Waqar Younis on Friday accused a hacker of liking lewd video from his official Twitter account and issued a statement saying that he will delete his social media handles. The 48-year-old went on to say that he has decided to set himself apart from social media because his account was hacked and a porn video was liked from it.
Former Pakistan pacer put out a video this morning and told the entire incident, saying that he will never be seen on social media again. Waqar also highlighted that this is not first time that such thing has happened.
Critics were quick to attack the former cricketer to which he responded with what may be his last post on any of his social media handles. He elucidated that he was not the man behind the inappropriate actions.
Waqar Younis put out a video on his official Twitter handle saying, "Today I have to say with great regret that when I woke up this morning, someone hacked my Twitter account and liked grossly inferior videos from my account."
"So it is a matter of great shame, it is a matter of great regret and discomfort. For me and my family too. I used to think that social media or Twitter is a way of interacting with people. But unfortunately this man ruined everything. By the way, the hacker has not done this for the first time. I have had an account hack three or four times. I do not think this man is going to stop, so I have decided that I will not come on social media after today. I love my family more. You will not see me on social media after today. I am sorry if this hurts anyone."
