"The tweets and posts were extremely inappropriate and I am so disappointed and disgusted that somebody would say the bad things that were said", Antetokounmpo wrote. The tweets were deleted within minutes and Antetokounmpo's account was locked shortly thereafter.
Antetokounmpo's brother Kostas, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, also posted a message to social media to say that his Twitter, phone, email and bank accounts had also been targeted.
Not only that, his longtime girlfriend took to Twitter and reported that a lot more things of his were hacked as well.
The tweets included racial slurs, profanity and a claim that Antetokounmpo had the coronavirus.
"I feel bad that the Bucks, Khris, LeBron and the Curry family were included in the malicious and untrue tweets".
At 53-12, the Bucks had the best record in the National Basketball Association before the league was suspended on March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The All-Star is putting up 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game this season. Should the Warriors actually pick him up, which is within the realm of possibility, the result would be an NBA powerhouse led by the Greek national and Curry.
Alex and Giannis' older brother, Thanasis, also plays for the Bucks.
While this is a serious matter, you know Twitter had jokes, immediately wondering if the NBA's Most Valuable Player used the same password for all of his accounts.
