Hackers use foul language after hijacking Tony Blair’s Facebook profile

Facebook London, Apr 21 (ANI): Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s Facebook profile set up to promote his charity foundation has been hijacked by computer users who have launched personal attacks on him and his wife.

The Tony Blair Faith Foundation on Facebook, which is accessed via a link from the charity’s official website, is supposed to promote understanding of the world’s religions.

However, it is instead dominated by abusive messages against the Blairs, The Telegraph reports.

“Setting up a Mickey Mouse foundation will do nothing to clear your conscience. Your legacy was sealed a long time ago. You can bang your Christian drum for as long as you like,” one poster wrote on Saturday.

Another poster wrote: “Tony blair. You are a poor man’s Michael Sheen. You are a parody of yourself. You wish you could be as cool MC Gordon Brown.”

Another wrote: “Tony Blair was about as good for Britain as the bubonic plague.”

Last year the charity revealed that it had been Tony Blair who become the unwitting victim of identity fraudsters after emails were sent out advertising non-existent conferences he was said to be addressing.

The scam was based upon getting fans of the former PM to pay registration fees to attend the events with delegates promised grants and sponsorship if they paid the money up front. (ANI)
