Brett Eldredge/Kristin Barlowe/Sony Music Nashville
Country singers Kellie Pickler and Brett Eldredge found themselves the latest celebrity victims of a Twitter attack Saturday night (June 4). The hackers had access to the stars’ accounts long enough to post a number of too-inappropriate-to-share comments, including a supposed tweet from Pickler to Taylor Swift that read “I hope you die @taylorswift13.”
Fans caught on quickly to the hack and went to bat for Pickler and Eldredge.
Someone/thing obviously has twitterjacked #KelliePickler ‘s Twitter ..the stuff being posted is definitely not her..or she became possessed.
