The New York Yankees’ Facebook page was hacked on Thursday afternoon and the hacker left a rather hilarious message. As seen above, the message told fans that Derek Jeter would miss the rest of the season to have a sex change operation and that he would be back next season as Minnie Mantlez.
As website owners we obviously frown upon hacking, but if you’re going to break into someone’s page to leave a message, that’s how you do it. Hilarious.
UPDATE: It seems like there was an MLB Facebook page hacking bandit on the loose on Thursday. The Cubs, Giants, Marlins, White Sox, and Padres pages all were hacked too.
Is there something more going on here? A ploy to draw attention and get more Facebook likes?
