Ariana Grande’s YouTube channel was hacked by an IShowSpeed ​​fan

A fan of popular YouTuber IShowSpeed ​​took over the YouTube accounts of Ariana Grande and Harry Styles in a series of hacks no one saw coming.

YouTube star IShowSpeed ​​is known for his occasional on-stream glee, but one of his fans took things to the next level with a widespread hack that compromised the YouTube accounts of several high-profile celebrities.

On April 5, 2022, fans on social media noticed that their favorite artists’ YouTube channels were uploading some questionable content.

These artists included names like Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Lil Nas X, Travis Scott, Justin Bieber, and even the late Michael Jackson.

Many of the clips uploaded to these artists’ profiles contained strange videos with captions alluding to a hack by someone called “LOSPELAOSBRO” on Twitter.

Videos ranged from a 51-year-old Spaniard named Paco Sanz singing a crooked song while playing guitar to a re-upload of IShowSpeed’s music video for his song “Shake.”

The YouTuber’s music video has garnered over 65 million views at the time of writing – just four months after it was uploaded in November 2021.

The hacker also included the hashtag #FreePacoSanz in the description of the videos, along with the caption, “We won’t stop until political prisoner Paco Sanz is released.”

Paco Sanz, also known as the “man with 2,000 tumors,” is a 51-year-old former security officer who claimed he had Cowden syndrome – a condition characterized by the presence of many benign tumors.

However, it has been reported Sanz allegedly lied about the severity of his condition. He was sentenced to two years in prison for cheating donors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars to obtain funds to cure his Cowden Syndrome.

Thankfully, the artists’ YouTube channels affected by the hack are now back to normal, with all offending videos removed. IShowSpeed ​​has not commented on the strange situation at the time of writing.

This is far from the first huge hack to affect a number of celebrities; Back in September 2019, a number of celebrities and influencers had their Twitter accounts compromised by a group of hackers who even infiltrated the profile of former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
