Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em has broken his silence on an unexpected and controversial Facebook rant he allegedly posted over the weekend.
According to Soulja Boy, his Facebook account was hacked resulting in the negative postings.
Now, in a statement to TMZ, Soulja says, "I wanted to clear the air and let everyone know that my Facebook got hacked." He explains, "I had administrators on my account that no longer work with me. The hackers used these old accounts to post hateful messages. This was not done by me or anyone on my team and I'm upset that I am being labeled as a racist and homophobic person." (TMZ)
The extensive rant became public Sunday (June 12) evening and re-posted by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
"WHO THE f*ck "likes" an artist on facebook who they dont LIKE. DUMB A**" "If you dont like ME or my music UNLIKE the page and let the people who do enjoy their artist giving updates and music out. sh*t getting out of hand now. GTFOH you stalkers" "how can you say "i hate you" blah blah blah. when you are on my page that doesnt make any sense! it sounds crazy you are stalking a person who you dont like WTF kinda sh*t is that. no life having b*tches" "haters are so f*cking stupid! "i dont like soulja boy so im gonna like his facebook and wait till he post a video to be the 1st one to comment" n***a get the f*ck out of here go get some pussy and stop being a lame" (Perez Hilton)

In March, rap star Lil Wayne talked about his issues with Twitter after fighting through hacks.
"I just shut my Twitter account down because it got hacked," Wayne revealed in an interview with Paris Hilton for Interview Magazine. "Once it got hacked I had Twitter fix it. They changed it. And then it got hacked again so I just shut it down. As of right now, I'm on Twitter strike." (Interview Magazine)
