Imagine winning a video game world tournament at 16 years old.

Then, imagine getting hacked directly afterward.

That's exactly what happened to Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf, the $3 million solos Fortnite World Cup champion who just got his Twitter and Twitch accounts hacked. shared Giersdorf's story:

Shortly after the 16-year-old Fortnite pro was crowned champion, strange tweets began appearing on his Twitter account.

Shortly after his Twitter account was hacked, his Twitch account was compromised too. Despite the account broadcasting live, a single image was displayed which said "Follow @percocet / @bug on twitter for a follow off bugha"

Thankfully for Bugha, whoever compromised the accounts didn’t do much with them, besides asking his many followers to follow two random accounts.
