Scotty T claims his Twitter was hacked after 'insensitive' Ariana Grande post

Scotty T insists he's only just got access back to his Twitter account.

Scotty T has claimed his Twitter was hacked after offering Ariana Grande a “cuddle” following the terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester.

The 23-year-old popstar has reportedly suspended her tour after a lone suicide bomber set off an explosive device in the box office area of Manchester Arena on Monday night (22May17), killing 22 people and injuring almost 60 more.

Many stars have taken to social media to share their condolences to the families of the victims, and Geordie Shore star Scotty appeared to be one of them. However, his message, “Thoughts going out to all the victims and their familys (sic) in Manchester right now and you Ariana Grande!! #FancyACuddle,” followed by a smiley emoji, triggered anger amongst followers who accused him of being insensitive for seemingly hitting on the singer following the traumatic incident.

By Tuesday morning (23May17) the tweet had been deleted and the 29-year-old told users it wasn’t him who had posted it.

“Hi apologies to anyone offended last night,” he wrote. “My Twitter was hacked. Anyone who follows me knows I would not tweet anything so disgusting.”

Not everyone was convinced though, with many accusing Scotty of lying and blaming his actions on other people. A user called Robin Wiseman called the reality star out on his comment, to which Scotty again insisted he had been hacked and was only just gaining access to his account after the tweet.

Sceptical of his claim though, Robin replied: “Morning Scott, I'll file this straight into the never happened/fake news file! Just apologise for being a massive weapon rather than lie.”

TV personality and former politician’s wife Karen Danczuk shared her views too, fuming: “When I didn't think you could stoop any lower - you just did (thumbs down emoji) And don't blame a "hacker" for your inexcusable tweet! KD”
