After Twitter, Watson's Instagram account hacked

Former Australian cricket star Shane Watsons Instagram account was hacked on Tuesday. A series of objectionable images were posted from Watson's account and even his profile bio was changed since Tuesday afternoon.

After fans raised alarm over the illicit images from Watson's account, the former Aussie quickly took to Twitter and said his Instagram account was hacked besides urging the photo and video-sharing social networking platform to act quickly.

"My apologies to everyone for the illicit photos that have been posted on my Instagram account. First my Twitter account on Friday got hacked and now Instagram today. Instagram needs to help out a lot quicker when things like this happen. This is taking way too long!!!," the 38-year-old tweeted.

Earlier on October 11, Watson's Twitter account was also hacked and a series of objectionable tweets, the account's profile picture and name were also changed. His account was however, restored soon the same day.

Watson, who quit international cricket in 2016, was in Chennai on Monday and had said that the decision of retirement by former India skipper M.S. Dhoni from international cricket should be left entirely to him.
