The Game, who is a well-known trouble maker, recently posted a tweet that sent the Los Angeles Sheriff Department on a frenzy. The Game posted on his Twitter account a phone number and told fans that if they wanted to be an intern for him, they should call that number. What happens when a celebrity posts a number via social networks? A million people will call!
Apparently, the phone number he provided was to the Sheriff’s Office, and they didn’t realize The Game posted something on his Twitter account until it was to late. Nearly 6 hours passed, and they were stilling receiving calls from people inquiring about becoming an intern. Many who realized it was the LASD hung up before anything started. But Captain Mike Parker decided to fight The Game with his own medicine.
Parker retreated to Twitter in response to the prank, saying, “U Tweeted phone# of #LASD #Compton Sheriff & said 2 call 4 internship when there is none. Lg.vol.calls R compromising publicsafety.” And now there is talk about pressing charges because the Sheriff’s Department said there were so many calls about the internship that they aren’t sure how many emergencies weren’t able to get through.
The Game eventually deleted the tweets but he expressed his frustrations in response, “Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders!”
My biggest curiosity is wondering why The Game did that in the first place. But then again, he built his career on a beef within hip hop…I’m not too surprised.
