When the singer regained access to his account he wrote, “I’m back. My hacker was vulgar and kinda hilarious. I’ll try to be funnier from now on so he won’t feel the need to ghost write for me.”
He added, “I would never threaten violence to the President. No matter how much I wish he would go away . . . I wouldn’t call him a Cheeto because I enjoy Cheetos.”
