The former pacer posted a Twitter video on Friday morning, announcing that he is quitting social media as a result of this development.

"When I woke up this morning, I found out that someone had hacked my twitter account and liked an obscene and immoral video using my account. This is very shameful, disappointing and hurtful to me and my family,” Waqar said.

"I thought social media is a medium to interact with your fans. However, this is not the first time something like this has happened. It has happened before as well. So it looks like this guy will not mend his ways, hence I have decided to quit social media because my family is more important to me. I am sorry if anyone is hurt because of this,” he added.

Waqar eventually unliked the video, but not before the Twitter users had already taken screenshots of the tweet.

A similar kind of tweet was liked from Waqar’s Twitter account two years ago, but the 48-year-old refrained from clarifying about it then.
