Talk about the plot THICKENING!
This is seriously crazy! And NOT good!
As we reported, Diddy was the latest celebrity victim in a series of increasingly problematic, frightening pranks occurring all over El Lay come to known as SWATTING!
If you've been living under a rock the last few months, here's how it goes: the police receive an anonymous call that there's a home being invaded, authorities send out multiple officers to investigate, and they discover a celebrity's home, usually empty, with no signs of a break-in, let alone a crime of any nature!
Yeah! Not FUNNY!
Not to mention HUGE drain on resources!
But while the first incident, which occurred at Ashton Kutcher's home, was discovered to be the work of a 12-year-old boy, it appears that a collective of hackers, responsible for leaking the finances of celebrities, amongst other things, have announced that basically every SWATTING incident since has been because of THEM!
Although they've only publicly taken credit for the rapper yesterday and Paris Hilton earlier this month, sources close to the group are ALSO bragging about pulling the prank on Kim Kardashian, Tom Cruise, Chris Brown…and apparently, MIT in Boston!
Is this REALLY the best way to be spending your time, guys?
Seriously, what does this even ACCOMPLISH, besides wasting people's time, many of whom who could be out helping people and solving crimes of REAL significance?
Here's hoping the FBI can close in some leads and bring these guys down! And SOON!
