The Game

I Didn't Punk the Cops On Twitter

The Game is incredulous that cops want to charge him for allegedly inciting people on Twitter to harass the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, claiming he never sent the tweets in question.

Sheriff's officials are livid after a tweet went out from The Game's twitter account urging people to call the Sheriff's substation in Compton to get a rap internship.

But The Game tells TMZ he never authored the tweet in question. Game says he was in the middle of a photo shoot Friday night when a childhood friend of his -- whose Twitter handle is @wackstar -- began going to town on The Game's phone ... typing in five phone numbers and calling people to action.

The Game insists his friend had no idea one of the numbers went to the Sheriff's Department. The Sheriffs claim that once their office was flooded with phone calls they asked The Game to call people off -- but Game says he never received the message. As he put it, "They don't have my number and I'm not following the police."

As for the police wanting to have The Game charged with a crime, he says, "Casey Anthony can get away with murder and The Game goes to jail for tweeting. God bless America."

It seems to me that there is a First Amendment issue here, especially since there is no face-to-face contact between Twitter and Twitee.

Ummm, yah, sure it wasn't you doing it. Your phone was hacked. Yep, ummm hummm. Didn't he just say yesterday that he couldn't be charged because it was free speech?

The most shocking part of the statement is that a black guy thinks Casey Anthony was guilty.

Stupid. I read that he also wrote that the police can't solve a murder but can figure out where a tweet came from. Does he think solving a murder is as easy as finding out where a tweet came from? I guess that's why he's a rap star (a group of who often refer to women as ho's, praise guns, glorify hate and violence) instead of, say, using his brain for something worthwhile. Thank you, 'the game' for reminding me what kind of people are disgusting.

What a good point Game.

CA got off scout free after killing her child yet they are always looking to put an AA in jail.

Those white pigs are disgusting.

No wonder those lowlife MUTHERS can solve any crimes.

I stumbled on to this story. My question is this: have people in general become a bunch of mindless lemmings? Some idiot so called celebrity tells people to tweet/twitter..watever, and over 1/2 a million people jump to it. I hope that none of these morons vote!!!!!
