Tweet Elle Dee: Rita Ora victimized by ‘hackers’ after twitter campaign fails miserably

 

Friday morning British pop singer and Fifty Shades of Grey actress Rita Ora told her 3.95 million twitter followers that she’d release a new single on Monday if her post had 100,000 re-tweets.

After roughly 13 hours, only 2,000 or so of her fans followed suit.

So Ora deleted the tweet and, when asked by her fans what was going on, she blamed the whole thing on hackers. “By the way my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I’ve worked really hard on,” she wrote. “Nothing comes out until I’m ready.”

 
 

Seems legit. Rita Ora pop songs are the new WikiLeaks.

However, Us Magazine claims that Ora actually re-tweeted a fan’s plea on Friday that read: “where her 3.9m followers at when you need them smh.” That re-tweet has been un-RT’d, as well.

So we probably won’t be getting a new Rita Ora song tomorrow, which keeps “Black Widow,” her “Dark Horse”-jacking collaboration with Iggy Azalea, fresh in our minds just a little bit longer. But if this post gets 100,000 shares, we’ll cover one of her songs and release it ourselves on YouTube.

And Ora’s explanation… which has been re-tweeted nearly 1,400 times.

  1. She was being overly ambitious with 100,000 retweets, no one gets that many. Only people with teeny bopper fan bases get that many retweets. She should have never deleted it or lied about being hacked. If people made articles about how she didn’t get enough retweets, they would seem like petty bullies. Now that she tried to cover it up, it makes it worse. Live and learn, Rita.
