Sam Rubin, an entertainment reporter for the KTLA morning news, has come under fire recently as he claims that his Twitter account was hacked on July 7th. According to Rubin, his Twitter account was hacked while he was sitting in a screening for the upcoming Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises”. During this time, Rubin’s Twitter account sent out a racially driven tweet about Yung Berg.
The tweet read “Fake a** N*gga.” Maybe this wouldn’t be such a big deal if Mr. Rubin wasn’t a white reporter. Prior to tweeting that, he posted “OOPS…I will explain Later. But, biggest boo boo of the year. For reals.”
Well, he has now written a blog addressing the issue and explained that his “OOPS” tweet was not about the Yung Berg tweet, and that he actually tweeted that at 8 pm, before the racial diss against Yung Berg appeared on his Twitter at 8:12pm. Mr. Rubin explained on his blog that he posted that “OOPS” tweet because the screening of the Batman film became disrupted due to technical reasons, so he was expressing his displeasure in having the movie halted temporarily.
Mr. Rubin claims that he doesn’t even know who Yung Berg is. Twitter accounts are hacked often, so this could have been just another one of those unfortunate occurrences.
