A Player of NFL Gets Hacked on Live TV

A video was posted on the verified Laremy Tunsil's Twitter account on Thursday Night, who is a NFL prospect, showed the offensive tackle of previous Ole Miss from a gas mask and smoking an unknown substance from a bong. However, tweet was erased within minutes of its posting.

Tunsil, who is a top-rated prospects of the draft and was overall viewed as a No. 1 pick, was Miami Dolphins No. 13 picked overall. Tunsil confirmed his presence in video to Suzy Kolber of ESPN, and also said that he was feeling "blessed" after being picked by Dolphins.

Tunsil closed his Twitter account soon after the video was posted on that account. However, by that time, the clip had already become viral. Edition.cnn.com posted on April 29th, 2016, quoting Tunsil as saying that the account was hacked.

A 30 sec. video was posted on verified Laremy Tunsil's Twitter account, showing him smoking an unidentified substance from a mask armed with a bong, and it was deleted soon after.

The whole account after almost 30 minutes was deactivated, however the video further added to perception that Tunsil has problems out of the field.

On Tuesday, stepfather of Tunsil filed a legal case against him that is linked to domestic violence confrontation in last June. He immediately denied that he was responsible for the leak. Tunsil was also compelled to sit out for many games of his junior year, when the NCCA ruled that he did not receive proper benefits.

However, reality of Tunsil's prospects started leaking early this week, once reports indicated that few teams preferred Ronnie Stanley of Notre Dame. Tunsil had an inconsistent career in Ole Miss because he never completed a season due to suspension or injury, and also his stepfather sued him this week due to an incident which happened last summer.

However, it was not only Tunsil's Twitter account which apparently got hacked and the video of gas-mask was simply not the lone dark part of Tunsil's history which became known on the draft day. Soon after being picked by Dolphins, account of Tunsil's Instagram showed text messages photos that seemed to indicate that the player is asking money from John Miller, athletic director of Ole Miss.

All the users should have their accounts secured, otherwise they will found themselves hacked in the most incorrect moments.
