New York Knicks swingman JR Smith sat out Wednesday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs with a heel injury, but he made sure to stay busy despite not playing. At one point during the second quarter of his team’s 10th consecutive loss, Smith — or someone who had access to his account — liked a model on Instagram.
What social media he’s on… Paul Pierce: I am on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. … Twitter, I’ll tweet when I’m rooting for a game, I always tweet out photos of my family on Halloween or on vacation, and I do use it to share what my corporate partners want to communicate. Instagram is photo-heavy and I use it when at events or on the road taking photos, and Facebook is a combo of the two. Facebook my management team usually manages for me, and they curate from everything that’s on Twitter and Instagram as well as good articles that are being written about me or my team and my foundation.
“I was hacked” is often the go-to defense for any athlete or celebrity who says something stupid on social media, but it does happen. Kevin Durant is the latest victim, and from the looks of it, all the hacker did was plug his Twitter handle in KD’s bio. The culprit is keeping a low profile on Twitter. His page is pretty nondescript, although the “I do it for the good of the people” line in his bio is a little weird. It’s tough to see what public service he’s doing by hacking Kevin Durant’s Instagram account.
