I Never Said That, What Do You Mean We're At War? My Account Must Have Been Hacked.?

Have there been any high-profile examples where "My account was hacked" was the actual reason for an inflammatory/embarrassing/compromising message, email, or AskMe post, rather than just a lame excuse?

It's always seemed like a really thin excuse and it would take a subtle hacker to violate an account but only leave a few inflammatory comments. In my experience assholes outnumber subtle hackers about 1000 to 1.

. In general I'm not looking for stories about how someone left their Facebook account logged in and a friend 'liked' every Justin Beiber fan group, but more targeted where someone had an account compromised and left a strategically damaging message.
