Just days after Mariah Careyâ€™s Twitter account was hacked by the hacker group known as Chuckling Squad, it appears â€œUncut Gemsâ€ star Adam Sandlerâ€™s has been improperly accessed as well.
The hacker this time retweeted tweets from several accounts, but focused primarily on the handle @iNuBLoM, which was also referenced during Careyâ€™s hack.
One tweet from @MJerkme that was retweeted by the hacker and directed at Barack Obama, calls the former president an â€œarangatang monkeyâ€ and continues, â€œu ruined my life when u messed with the food stamp rates i hate u forever retart.â€ According to reports, other tweets that appear to have been deleted referenced Careyâ€™s hacking and at least one was directed at Donald Trump. Another tweet that remains up references A$AP Ferg.
Chuckling Squad has also been linked to the hacking of Twitter CEO Jack Dorseyâ€™s account, with at least one individual arrested in connection with Dorseyâ€™s hacking. According toÂ Motherboard, Dorseyâ€™s hack was carried out using a technique called SIM-swapping, where hackers trick a wireless provider like T-Mobile or Verizon into giving control of a phone number. Hackers can then gain access to two-factor authentication SMS codes post tweets via Twitterâ€™s now-defunct text-to-tweet functionality. Itâ€™s unknown if Carey and Sandlerâ€™s hacking was carried out the same way.
