Twitter Account of Jim Irsay has Apparently been Hacked Twice during Past Two Weeks

Jim Irsay, owner of the Colts, casually tweeted out a photo of a naked woman on early Thursday morning.

As Irsay has not claimed the tweet which was deleted 12 min. after it went up and is a result of a hack, all indications are towards his account being compromised.

Soon after the exposure of the naked photo, the account of Irsay tweeted its own Twitter handle at itself in response to one of the tweets of the owner from June 16th, which read "I've been hacked! Be careful out there." Dailymail.co.uk posted on June 29th, 2017, stating that this was followed by a blank tweet addressed to the accounts of manifold local reporters of Indianapolis, the basketball team Indiana Pacers and news stations.

Deadspin later reported that the photo was of Anette Dawn who is Hungarian porn actor. The tweet was deleted 12 min. after it was sent out but not before the name of Irsay had started trending, suitably, on Twitter. After it got deleted, a blank tweet addressed to manifold local reporters of Indianapolis, Indiana Pacers and news stations was sent out.

Irsay took over Colts at 37 yrs. of age, becoming the NFL's youngest owner, after his father died in 1997. Under Isray's ownership, the Colts won 1 Super Bowl. The owner of the Colts, who purchased this team in the year 1997, hasn't released any more statement about pornographic photo.


A tweet's reply like that would surface original tweet in the conversation thread, and therefore it is not a bad idea if you are saying that you are hacked in a tongue-in-cheek type of way, however it's strange to just simply claim being hacked 2 weeks before as a way to say that again you are hacked.


Many-a-times when the celebrities got engaged in odd online behavior, they claim that they have been hacked and very often people don't believe them. That seems as the case with Jim Irsay on certain corners of Internet. Or maybe it is just a publicity stunt for stealing the NBA's Thunder or might be Jim Irsay only required to modify his password instantly.
