Last night the Harlem Globetrotters' Facebook page was hacked by Big G.
It wasn't one of the notorious hacker groups on the news, rather, it was our very own Big G. The Harlem Globetrotters woke up Thursday morning to find out someone had changed their profile, and had been posting on their wall. After regaining control of the account and apologizing for the hackers' actions, the Globetrotters' investigation revealed that it was one of their own mascots, Big G. Apparently, Big G had been planning this cyber event for a few days, as evidenced by a series of tweets on his public Twitter account @BigGTheMascot.
"#mentionadateyouwillneverforget August 15. tomorrow, I'm planning the #takeover...@globies" -August 14, 1:07 p.m.
"I've been planning this for a while now... time for the #takeover!" -August 15, 3:19 p.m.
Big G changed the Harlem Globetrotters' profile picture, cover photo and even leaked to fans a signup sheet to be notified when the Harlem Globetrotters' new mobile game, Trick Shots, is launched. The link, which is still active, can be found here: Trick Shots Sign Up. Recognizing Big G’s excellent cyber skills, the Globetrotters have called upon him to help keep their fans entertained via Twitter, in addition to his smile-spreading duties on the court. The conversation continues with the hash tag #Takeover on Twitter. Tweet your thoughts on the subject to @Globies or @BigGTheMascot.
See you on the web,
