Phoenix Suns star Chris Paul just couldn’t catch a break.
Following Thursday’s frustrating Game 3 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, Paul was slapped with another problem out of nowhere after his Twitter account was hacked. The hacker certainly didn’t hold back and took advantage of the opportunity, sending out some NSFW rants about the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, while also giving some hilarious remarks and shout-outs to random Twitter accounts.
Over 30-plus tweets has been sent out by the hacker through the account of the Suns star. Upon searching as of time of writing, it seems CP3’s Twitter has been deactivated and the posts have been deleted.

Chris Paul is yet to address the incident, but it certainly couldn’t come at the worst time possible.
Paul and his Suns just suffered a huge 109-95 loss to the Lakers on Thursday, with the veteran point guard clearly still bothered by the shoulder injury he sustained in Game 1 of the first-round playoffs series. CP3 finished Thursday’s contest with pedestrian numbers of seven points, five rebounds and six assists–far from his usual 16.4 points, 4.5 boards and 8.9 dimes averages.
After a long, grueling night in LA and some much-needed sleep, Paul will surely not like what welcomes him in the morning: news about the hacking and several inappropriate tweets under his name. Yikes!
