Lehmann quits social media after ‘vile’ content

With global tensions surging after US forces killed a top Iranian general called Qasem Soleimani in drone strike in Baghdad, the topic is attracting a lot of debate. As a result, the social media is filled with a plethora of messages on this topic. In this regard, former Australian cricketer Darren Lehmann’s Twitter account got compromised as it was found sharing horrible content.

The hacker used the coach of Brisbane Heat’s account to post anti Iran messages which ended up hurting the sentiments of many people. After this incident, the 49-year old decided to quit social media as the backlash disturbed him a lot. He, himself disturbed to see the hacker using condemnable language against a country.


Lehmann added that he doesn’t endorse or promote anything which was shared via his account. He also apologized to everyone who had to see the horrendous comments. Moreover, he extended his gratitude to the staff of Brisbane Heat who helped him get out of this muddle.
