KTLA Reporter Blames Hacker For Tweeting 'Fake Ass Nigga' at Rapper From His Account
A strange tweet was sent out from the account belonging to KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin.The tweet directed at rapper-producer Yung Berg said "fake ass nigga," according to Gawker, which saved a screenshot of the tweet for posterity.
Rubin has been an entertainment reporter for two decades, and his Twitter feed is more likely to contain teasers for his interviews with stars Katy Perry, Tom Cruise or Mila Kunis than rappers we've never heard of (until just now).
So we (unlike Gawker) are inclined to believe Rubin when he put up a note letting everyone know that he had been hacked:
Pardon Friends, my twitter has clearly been hacked. Will fix when I return home. Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn't tweet that phrase ever— Sam Rubin (@SamOnTV) July 7, 2012
But Rubin still hasn't taken down the awkward follow-up that also sounds like the work of a hacker:
OOPS....I will explain later. But, biggest boo boo of the year. For reals— Sam Rubin (@SamOnTV) July 7, 2012
Update 7/8: The above tweet wasn't the work of a hacker but was instead a reference to a botched screening of "The Dark Knight Rises." Rubin slammed the Gawker writer who kinda, sorta insinuated that his words might not be the work of a hacker.
