Ariana Grande’s Instagram hacked and filled with obscene content

Who would invade her privacy like this?


Ariana Grande is the latest celebrity to have a social media account hacked.

Someone got into the singer’s Instagram account early yesterday morning and shared a number of odd posts featuring obscene language as well as some racist messages with her 111 million followers.

According to NME, the hacker posted photos with captions including “GANG BITCH FUK WIT US GET SHMOKEEDDD” and “f****t ass n***a”.

Nicki Minaj spotted that something was up and commented a confused emoji on one of the posts, only to have the hacker turn their attention on her, saying she would be “next”.

The account has since been recovered and the posts deleted.

Ariana responded to what had happened by shouting out her fans for worrying about her.

Ariana is currently gearing up for the final leg of her Dangerous Woman tour, which she postponed earlier this summer after the terrorist attack at her Manchester concert that killed 22 people.

She’s not the first celebrity to be targeted by cyber hackers.

Tom Hiddleston had his Instagram account hacked last year, while Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber have also had their Twitter accounts taken over in the past.
