The reputation of soccer superstar and global celebrity David Beckham is taking a big hit in the British press since the publication of emails that were hacked last year that appear to show him obsessed with obtaining a knighthood, according to a story on Today.com.
The emails are still under investigation and the hackers have yet to be found.
A spokesperson for Beckham released the following statement which reads in part:
U.S. & World
“This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture....David and UNICEF are rightly proud of what they have and will continue to achieve together and are happy to let the facts speak for themselves.”
