Rapper Apologizes for Flash-Call Tweet, Blames Friend

August 22, 2011  | 

A Los Angeles rapper has apologized to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for a Twitter message from his account that bombarded the Compton station with calls from his followers.

The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor and who also uses the name Charles Louboutin on his Twitter page, has apologized for a tweet that gave the sheriff's station phone number, prompting hundreds of his followers to overwhelm deputies and dispatchers with calls.

The rapper said one of his friends grabbed his phone while at a photo shoot and sent the message as a prank that he described as a "joke gone wrong."
