Shirley Temple Black’s reps say she hasn’t joined Twitter; Impostor account now hawking Viagra

New followers of the recently launched @TempleShirleyJ Twitter account were stunned today when the feed turned into a virtual billboard for Viagra, work-at-home scams and other iffy “opportunities.”

Many thought Shirley Temple Black had been hacked.

But it appears the actress was never on Twitter to begin with.

Twitchy also accepted the New York Post’s “confirmation” that an unverified Shirley Temple Twitter account was the real deal. But the legendary actress’ reps say she’s not on Twitter.

Several celebs (and Piers Morgan) seemed to think the impostor account was real, adding to the confusion.

Sigh. The confusion about Honey Boo Boo was apparently too good to be true. Twitchy apologizes for the error.
