People trolled Vijay Mallya after his account was hacked by a group called ‘Legion’. In a series of tweets, the group gave out addresses, phone numbers, email IDs and passwords that they claimed belonged to Mr. Mallya.

Post the account hack, Twitter broke with tweets mocking the businessman who was popularly called the “King of Good Times” in his ‘good’ times.

Legion claimed the hack shot to fame with Tweeples impressed by the unlawful job.

And some cheered the hacking group and encouraged their act by calling them ‘saviours’.

While some requested to leak some other information while they had illegal access to Mallaya’s account:

Legion is the same group that has previously claimed to have hacked Rahul Gandhi and the Congress Party’s account last week.

Unlike the time when Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s account was hacked, Mallaya quickly handled the situation by informing his followers about the hack and took control.

“My account has been hacked by some one called Legion who are Tweeting now in my name. Simply ignore. Will fix this,” Mallya said in a tweet.

He later called out the hacking group and undermined their act.
