Kamal Martin claims he’s hacked, then deletes Twitter after tweeting porn link

Kamal Martin, Packers

Yet another professional athlete has apparently had their social media hacked. Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Kamal Martin deleted his Twitter after tweeting out a link to a pornographic film.

Martin initially claimed he had been hacked after the link was sent, though the prompt deletion of his account had some Twitter users feeling skeptical.

The former University of Minnesota standout is hardly alone in having his social media security compromised by hackers, if that is indeed what happened.

Multiple NBA stars — including Giannis Antetokounmpo, Trae Young and Wendell Carter Jr. — have been victimized by hackers this year. Internet security would seemingly be of greater importance to athletes given these recent trends as well as the fact everyone is stuck indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kamal Martin fell to the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft after missing most of the 2019 NCAA football season due to injury. He then suffered another setback in September after undergoing knee surgery.

The 22-year-old returned in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. He recorded six solo tackles, including a tackle for a loss. Martin’s performance resulted in a drastically higher snap count (82 percent) in Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings, but he apparently lost his starting spot in last weekend’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Green Bay is hoping its defense continues to play at a high level to match its high-scoring offense. The Packers will also be counting on Martin to provide depth and help to stop the run at the second level of attack.
