Kevin O’Leary’s Twitter account is hacked and used to advertise free crypto

It seems that the Twitter account of Kevin O’Leary, the star of “Shark Tank,” has been hijacked by hackers promoting a Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) giveaway.

In fact, on December 29, the account sent a tweet about a purported giveaway and asked followers to “click on the photo to join the event.” In a series of tweets, the volume and grammar of the tweets began to make the TV personality’s fans suspect.

“My accounts have not been hacked!” I said on television last night that I would be giving away something. Enjoy.”

A subsequent tweet stated: “This giveaway is genuine and not a SCAM. My accounts have not been hacked!!!”

O’Leary disclosed that his engagement with the FTX cryptocurrency exchange cost him millions of dollars earlier this month. 

“I invested $9.7 million in cryptocurrencies. I believe I’ve lost it. All values are 0. My account was deleted a few weeks ago, therefore I do not know. Everything, including all data and currency. It was a poor investment decision. Then I also lost the money I put in the company’s equity, which are now zeros,” he stated.

Investors in FTX have launched a lawsuit against O’Leary and other celebrities, saying that the exchange’s ambassadors should have conducted further research and been more cautious before promoting the cryptocurrency firm.

The new episode will have done O’Leary no favours in the cryptocurrency community, whose mistrust of the entrepreneur and media personality comes from the FTX promotion.
