Ben Fordham’s Twitter account hacked with X-rated clips

Radio presenter Ben Fordham was likely left a little red faced after his Twitter account was used to retweet X-rated clips.

The Today show host has not publicly addressed the apparent hacking of his social media account, and the Porn Hub posts that appeared on his account on Friday were swiftly deleted.

However, it wasn’t before some of his 97,000 Twitter followers spotted the rouge content and shared it on the platform.

“What’s happening over at Ben Fordham’s page?” one person asked alongside a screenshot they had captured.

Ben Fordham replaced veteran presenter Alan Jones as host of the 2GB breakfast show in Sydney earlier this year.

He is also host of Australian Ninja Warrior and still regularly appears on Today and Today Extra. It was a hectic schedule for the dad, with Ninja shot in Melbourne and filming often going until 2am or 3am each morning.

Then he wakes up for his radio gig at 3am.

“I’d do the Ninja Warrior thing at night and into the morning and then go and do the radio show,” he told earlier this year.

“I see no reason why I couldn’t pull it off. I’m not afraid of a bit of hard work.”
