Sleeping With Sirens' Kellin Quinn hacked on Twitter/X, not actually selling MacBooks
Some recent posts by Sleeping With Sirens vocalist Kellin Quinn on Twitter/X had many of their fans wondering if the singer was pulling a scam and selling some Macbooks on social media, wiling to let 10 MacBooks go for $600 or two for $1000 in the name of charity, and even offering to sign them.
A tweet from Kellin Quinn's account read:
Hello Twitter family ! I have a special promotion going on ! I have 10 MacBook Pro's on sale for $600 each ! On top of that I will be signing every MacBook that is sold , also free shipping is included ! All proceeds will be going to charity! My DMs are opened !
A follow-up repost from the same account said:
7 more left so here's what I'll do ! If you buy 2 at once I will let it go for $1000 in total ($200 discount ) and free shipping! My DMs are opened, let's sellout
Shortly after the posts began spreading around, the account was turned private:
Ultimately, the Sleeping With Sirens vocalist responded via Instagram Story, letting fans know he was in fact hacked.
Quinn said in the update:
Yo yo, what's going on? My Twitter was hacked. I am not in fact selling Macbooks on Twitter. So if you are seeing that post, please do not buy Macbooks from them. We are doing the best we can to get my Twitter back.
I don't know how it happened because I had every precaution set in place to not ever be hacked, but apparently it's possible.
So, anyways thanks for the heads up, but I'm not selling MacBooks and my Twitter was hacked. Bummer to me. Alright, see ya. Peace.
