If you try to access Selena Gomez’s Instagram page right now, you’ll receive an error message that says her profile “isn’t available.” That’s because somebody—most likely, a troll or trolls—have apparently hacked into her account. As a result, everything from the pop singer’s page has now been wiped clean. It’s like what Taylor Swift did to her account two weeks ago, except not on purpose and for a very unfortunate reason.
The hacker’s identity at this time is still unknown, though some screenshots offer some clues. Whoever is responsible for this uploaded three nude photos of Justin Bieber to Gomez’s account—which we won’t include here for reasons that should be obvious—and instructions to follow three random accounts. It’s likely those accounts belong to the hackers. That’s not all: Gomez’s account was listed as “islah gomez,” which matches one of the handles the hackers told people to follow.
See a screenshot, below:
It’s unfortunate but not surprising that Selena Gomez would be a target for hackers. After all, the singer is the most popular person on Instagram, with over 125 million followers.
Hopefully, Gomez will be back in control of her account soon. This story is currently developing; we’ll update this post with more information as it comes in.
