Former Australia all-rounder Shane Watson put out an apology for the illicit photos that were posted on his Instagram account, which got hacked on Tuesday. Watson’s Twitter account also got hacked last week. Screenshots published by British tabloid The Sun showed revealing images of women in underwear posted on his personal Instagram account.

The West Australian reported that a hacker also posted racial slurs and fat-shaming comments to his Twitter account last week.

Watson, who has more than two million followers across the two platforms, posted an apology to his followers for the posts.

“My apologies to everyone for the illicit photos that have been posted on my Instagram account,” he tweeted.
