Former Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis leaves Twitter after an embarrassing incident on the micro-blogging site. His account had liked an obscene video on Twitter which soon went viral after his followers found out.
The pacer wasn't active on Twitter for five days and had to come up with a video message to explain his side. He said the account was hacked and the hacker liked an adult content on his Twitter to defame him.
"Today I have to say with great regret that when I woke up this morning, someone hacked my Twitter account and liked grossly inferior videos from my account", he said.
Waqar added that it has affected his family and he doesn't want to be on social media as his loved ones come first. "So it is a matter of great shame, it is a matter of great regret and discomfort. For me and my family too. I used to think that social media or Twitter is a way of interacting with people. But unfortunately, this man ruined everything. By the way, the hacker has not done this for the first time.
"I have had an account hack three or four times. I do not think this man is going to stop, so I have decided that I will not come on social media after today. I love my family more. You will not see me on social media after today. I am sorry if this hurts anyone."
