Brett Favre Twitter Hacked: Favre Handlers Release Statement!


So, there is an update to our story this morning on the Brett Favre Twitter account story. This is going to confuse many of you. Stick with us. Brett Favre’s media coordinators want you to know that someone hacked @BrettFavre4 on Sunday night. The account prior to March 5 was legitimately Brett Favre. Everything since March 5 is the work of the hacker.

Here is the statement from Camp Favre that was sent to ESPN Wisconsin:

Greetings Brett Favre fans,

Please accept our sincere apologies regarding the information that we passed along regarding Brett’s new Twitter account last Friday, March 2nd.  Since Monday, March 5th an unknown party has taken over Brettfavre4 and has been tweeting without authorization.

At this time neither Mr. Favre or ourselves have any idea who is tweeting for him on his account.  It is most certainly NOT him or anyone he is associated with.  From Friday evening until Sunday night last weekend this account was the actual Brett Favre Twitter page, and was the actual Brett Favre, himself tweeting.  The last REAL tweet from Brett was to Russell Wilson Sunday evening.  Anything after this was an imposter that somehow gained access to his account and began posting bogus tweets.  Once again we apologize, and if any news comes up surrounding this disaster we will inform you all immediately.

On another note, we would like to let you know that it has been a very busy week for the Favres.  Deanna unfortunately had a bad accident recently while riding her mountain bike, requiring some minor surgery, but she is recovering well.  Luckily this incident will not interfere with her and Brett’s upcoming trip to the Bahamas with their daughter Breleigh for her spring break.  This is the second year in a row Brett has been able to do a family spring break trip, and he is thrilled!

Thanks for your support,

Official Brett Favre Admin

In other words, whatever you see right now @BrettFavre4 is fake. All of it. The tweets prior to March 5 are gone.

How does this happen? Bad password.

Of course we’ll update you when the account is legitimized. Expect a full story on SportsCenter.
