He took to social media to clear up things and announcing that he won’t be on social media anymore.
”Today, I have to say it with a heavy heart. When I woke up in the morning, someone had hacked into my Twitter account. That person liked an obscene video from my account. It is an extremely shameful, saddening, and agonizing thing for me and as well as for my family”, he said in his video message.
“I always thought that social media or Twitter has been a way to interact with people and fans. But, unfortunately, it has not happened for the first time, someone has done it in the past as well. So it looks like this guy will not mend his ways, hence I have decided to quit social media because my family is more important to me. I am sorry if anyone is hurt because of this”, he further added.
