TSN personality Jock Climie hasn’t used his Twitter much lately so it was a bit of a surprise when he suddenly started tweeting out a series of references to dead rapper XXXTentacion on Monday.
Climie, who has the blue checkmark verification handed out by Twitter, hasn’t Tweeted out anything CFL-related since 2012 – a Doug Brown reference! – and there are some exchanges with Chris Schultz and Matt Dunigan back in 2011. In fact, the account has been largely dormant since 2014 when he appeared to arrange to send a signed headshot to an apparent Jock Climie fan.
That changed on Monday when the screen name for his account was changed to Triple X and the profile photo and background photo changed to images of XXXTentacion, who was shot and killed in June. I mean, just look at this…
The account is now rapidly reTweeting all kinds of XXXTentacion references, including this beauty…
My mom found my old dick pics on instagram lol ,
Oh! And I'm getting out of jail in a couple of weeks 🙂

There are only two explanations that I can think of: one that Climie is a huge XXXTentacion fan and has decided to let that particular truth become the focus of his Twitter. Or two, he’s been hacked and is now wondering what, exactly, is going on.
It's an upgrade.
