Did Kadarius Toney really get hacked?
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney is attributing his recent social media controversies to a hacking incident.
In a recent video posted on Twitter, Toney criticized New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen and the team’s fanbase.
Additionally, he allegedly sent derogatory messages to Giants fans, including a vulgar voice note to a man and an offensive direct message to a woman. Toney also seemingly made a veiled comment about his former teammate Saquon Barkley.
However, Toney now claims that he is not responsible for these inappropriate messages and tweeted an apology, citing a hacking as the cause.
My apologies….I got hacked

We’re skeptical about this.
Obviously so was Twitter, see below:

The hackers must have been remarkably elaborate. They even used his face (at least his teeth) and his voice for all of those voice DMs he was sending fans. https://t.co/Bj3bIfI6gX

The claim that someone hacked Toney’s Twitter and sent a voice note to a disgruntled fan posing as Toney himself seems highly unlikely. Toney, who was drafted by the Giants in 2021, ultimately got traded to Kansas City during the previous season due to his inability to fit in with the new staff in New York.
While he did show moments of brilliance with the Giants, he also struggled with injuries and inconsistency.
Despite this, the trade worked out well for both teams. New York got rid of a troublesome player and received a third-round pick, which they used to acquire standout tight end Darren Waller.
On the other hand, the Chiefs gained a skilled player who made an impact by scoring a touchdown in the Super Bowl and setting up another with a long punt return.
