Hacked NFL Twitter account claims Roger Goodell has died
The people running the NFL Twitter account may want to change passwords. @NFL erroneously tweeted Tuesday afternoon that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell died at the age of 57.
The tweets were quickly deleted after they were originally posted.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport confirmed that Goodell is fine, and that the league's account was hacked.
The @NFL account was hacked. Roger Goodell is fine. Carry on.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 7, 2016
Goodell's Wikipedia page was also altered, with the location of his death listed as "Twitter."
