“Mbappe Owns Messi” – Piers Morgan’s Twitter Hacker shares eerily similar opinion to the man himself
The social media handles of many people have been hacked in recent times, with British journalist Piers Morgan on the list. At a time when eminent personalities such as Elon Musk, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates have been hacked, one must assume that no one is truly safe from the menacing hackers.
Even the former President of the United States, Barrack Obama, has been hacked in the past. Continuing the trend of celebrity hacking, Piers Morgan’s Twitter account has been hacked. What followed was a flurry of tweets from Morgan’s official handle.

The tweets made no real sense. Almost every famous personality who has been in the news recently, from Queen Elizabeth to Lionel Messi, is featured in these tweets. The hacker, it seems, wanted to give his views on any topic that is current at the moment. Internet sensation Andrew Tate, who has been “cancelled” online, was also featured in one of the tweets.

One tweet in particular stood out, where the hacker impersonating Piers Morgan tweeted: “Mbappe owns Messi.” It seems that the hacker is not the biggest fan of the result of the FIFA World Cup 2022 final.
Argentina defeated France on penalties in the final to lift the World Cup for the first time since 1986. Lionel Messi scored twice, while Kylian Mbappe bagged a hat-trick. Mbappe became the first man to score a World Cup finals hat-trick since Geoff Hurst in 1966. However, the Frenchman’s heroics were not enough to lead France to successive FIFA World Cup victories.
Piers Morgan, who is a known Cristiano Ronaldo fan, gets his account suspended after hacking incident
Piers Morgan is famously dubbed a Cristiano Ronaldo ‘fanboy’ after his unwavering support for the ex-Manchester United forward. Morgan interviewed Ronaldo before the World Cup in one-on-one. It was in the wake of this interview that Ronaldo and Manchester United parted ways.
Since then, the British journalist has been full of praise for Cristiano Ronaldo. He is a passionate Ronaldo supporter, which was further outlined by his comments on British Broadcaster BBC after the match between Argentina and Australia in the World Cup.
Morgan wrote on Twitter: “The relentless Messi fangirling by the entire BBC pundit team is becoming unbearably irreverent. Getting worried that one of them might have an “accident” in the studio. Calm down guys. He had a good game against an average team. See how he does it against a good team.”
The account is still down and locked. pic.twitter.com/YJ0LbnNOXx

After his account was hacked, Messi and Mbappe were the most mentioned in the tweets. Cristiano Ronaldo was not mentioned in the tweets posted by the hacker. A while later, the account was suspended by Twitter.
