‘Vile, horrendous’: Boof responds to hack

Darren Lehmann has reacted with shock and horror after discovering his twitter account was hacked to spread “vile” messages.

Brisbane Heat coach Darren Lehmann has responded after his Twitter account was hacked during last night’s Big Bash game, saying he and his family have been hurt by the “awful experience”.

The former Australian mentor was at Spotless Stadium watching his side defeat Sydney Thunder by 16-runs in a rain-affected clash, oblivious to the bizarre anti-Iran messages being posted on his social media channel.

Tweets like “I fully support @realDonaldTrump. F*** Iran. Rest in p*** qassem soleimani” flooded Lehmann’s account, which had its name briefly changed to “F*** Iran”.

Lehmann was shocked to discover the “vile and horrendous opinions” being spread and said he will stay off social media for the “foreseeable future”.
