Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has been hacked on Twitter.

Bucks fans immediately knew Giannis had been hacked after a couple tweets appeared stating the NBA star had coronavirus. The tweets included racist comments and slurs against the Asian community.

The hacker tweeted dozens of times and has retweeted the majority of those tweets as well.

Other tweets focused on the Bucks, coronavirus, Steph Curry, Khris Middleton, and even a tweet saying the Bucks star is going to the Warriors.

The tweets were on the page for a few minutes before they were deleted. Now, the Milwaukee Bucks organization is saying an investigation is underway.

Now, Giannis' brother Kostas is commenting on the incident saying that even Giannis' bank accounts were hacked.
