Lonzo Ball’s Snapchat account hacked early Friday morning
Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball had his Snapchat account hacked early Friday morning by an individual who used it to promote their own Twitter account while issuing potentially embarrassing threats.
Ball quickly took to Twitter in the immediate wake of learning his Snapchat had been compromised.

Among the posts were threats to post compromising photos of Ball and his girlfriend as well as revealing Kobe Bryant’s private phone number, among other things.

Several posts have since been deleted, but Clutch Points did manage to capture some screenshots of the unsavory, clearly inauthentic dispatches.
Ball has yet to comment any further on social media regarding how his Snapchat had been compromised. The 20-year-old coming off an uneven rookie season with the Lakers simply became the latest high-profile individual tasked with dealing with the unfortunate headaches associated with being famous on social media.
