With the holiday just around the corner, we’re back with another SGO Inside Drive. As always, the Inside Drive brings small bits of news you may have missed from the past week. This time we’re covering the hacking of WWE 2K’s social media accounts, news from WRC 8, and more.
SGO Inside Drive 11/21: WWE 2K, WRC 8 & More!
WWE 2K Succumbs to Social Media Hacking
Late this past week, details came out surrounding the hacking of WWE 2K’s social media accounts including both Facebook and Twitter. While the situation was handled rather quickly, AEW content still managed to spread in place of normal images and several ‘taboo’ posts were made. Most have been removed as of today; you can still find screenshots of the incidents within threads involving the hacking. 2K quickly put out a statement apologizing to any and all who may have been offended. Interestingly enough, few in the community seemed to care and simply commented on the need to #FixWWE2K20.
Social media accounts across the 2K label were compromised early Friday evening. Unfortunately, offensive material was posted that does not reflect the values of 2K or our partners. We condemn these posts and apologize to everyone offended by the content.
