X Factor star had his Twitter account hacked and they posted a load of lies apparently!

Earlier on today, a message was posted on the singer’s  joemcelderry91 page about being gay, which quickly went around the internet. However shortly after this was posted, Joe posted another message telling his fans that he was hacked.

The first post read: “I want you all to know before it comes out, I am gay. It’s been difficult living a lie for so many years but now I feel the time’s right x.”

Ten minutes later, Joe posted: “Guys my twitter has been hacked!”

Hacked? Or just hoping no one would notice?!
