Ringo Starr's Twitter Page Hacked

Beatles icon Ringo Starr fell victim to an Internet hacker on Monday after his Twitter.com page was compromised.

Fans of the veteran rocker became suspicious after noticing a series of odd messages pop up on Ringo's micro-blogging profile, with one retweet stating, "f*** the beatles".

Another criticised One Direction star Harry Styles, with the post stating, "Being honest here, @Harry_Styles was a bit smelly".

The cyber criminal responsible for the Twitter hack also changed the profile image on the drummer's page, and switched the handle to read "#PeggleCrew", instead of the usual "RingoStarr", according to Buzzfeed UK.

The real Ringo appeared to regain control of his Twitter page shortly afterwards, and promptly deleted all of the unauthorised posts, before resetting his profile picture to show a photo of himself flashing his famous peace sign, while holding a sign which read "Not Afraid".

He has yet to comment directly on the hack attack.
