Popular football manager and Chelsea legend, John Terry has taken to Twitter to change his profile picture to an NFT image, as he announced a collaboration with Ape Kids Club to create a drop for his family.
The Ape Kids Club collection, comprises of about 9,999 “baby apes,” as it aims to promote NFT usage among kids.
The former professional English football player revealed that he had purchased his first Bored Ape last week.
Although Terry’s promotion of NFTs received a negative reaction from his fans, the football star remains firm on his decision to support the NFT project.
Some Twitter users had jokingly suggested that his account has been hacked.
Dear @twitter I think a former captain of the England soccer team has been hacked. Someone is using his account to punt some crypto nonsense. Don’t worry John, I’m on it. https://t.co/33Svprbi6B— tariq panja (@tariqpanja) December 26, 2021
