As reported by NME, Alexa Chung’s Twitter account appears to have been hacked by a collective of NFT scammers. The TV presenter seemed to tweet from her official account to her 1.3million followers Monday afternoon with a giveaway on behalf of an NFT community called Azuki.
“GIVING AWAY THIS AZUKI NFT ($23,239) To enter – Follow me with [notifications on] – RT & like this – Tag 3 friends,” the post reads. Additional tweets have been posted from Chung’s account, one reading “Who has my notifications on?” and “Like if active, this is a test”, but it remains unclear whether Chung has regained control of her account.
Chung’s bio was also changed today, now reading: “simply a degen, marketing expert • DM For Promotions.” Representatives for Chung confirmed she had been hacked after being contacted by Rolling Stone UK – although there has been no word from Chung herself, nor an admission from Azuki.
