Jokester hacks NFL Twitter

The NFL needs to change it's passwords and get better firewalls

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

2016 has not been a good year for the rich and famous. In the span of six months, we've lost legends such as David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, and Muhammad Ali. But there's one report of a celebrity death that you shouldn't believe.

The NFL's Twitter account was hacked a little while ago and it Tweeted out a message saying that Roger Goodell has died today at the age of 57. The Tweet has since been deleted and the NFL is currently investigating who is responsible for the hack. Obviously, Roger Goodell is quite alive and well at this current moment.

There's probably some group of people that found this little joke funny, even more so if they really hate the commissioner. I personally never saw the humor in going on Twitter and telling everyone that a famous person is dead when they're still alive. But this would be a good time to mention that you should make sure that everything should be protected by a unique password that only you could possibly think of. Or at least something better than dadada.
