The Game has a few questions to answer from the LAPD this week, after tweeting the phone number of the Compton sheriff’s office while telling fans to call it to earn an internship with the rapper. The result: a barrage of calls jamming the lines for more than two hours, with the police angrily noting that real distress calls were unable to get through. “This incident was the social media equivalent of going into a crowded movie theater and shouting ‘Fire!’,” Sheriff’s captain Mike Parker tells Associated Press. “Public safety was absolutely compromised. We were delayed in responding to calls.” Parker actually tweeted The Game telling him to remove the post, only to receive a claim in reply that The Game’s account had been hacked, before a follow-up response: “Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!!” We sense that job may involve knocking on The Game’s door for a chat sooner rather than later.
