YouTube’s music video of the super hit song Despacito, that had over five billion views, is hacked.
Shakira, Selena Gomez, Drake and Taylor Swift are also affected by the hacker along-with dozen other artists. The original clips had been posted by Vevo.
The Despacito video has been removed and its cover image shows a group wearing masks and pointing guns.
The hackers named Prosox and Kuroi’sh, had written “Free Palestine” underneath the videos.
A Twitter account that apparently belongs to one of the hackers posted: “It’s just for fun, I just use [the] script ‘youtube-change-title-video’ and I write ‘hacked’.”
“Don’t judge me I love YouTube,” it added.
