Despacito Song And Other Vevo Songs On YouTube has been Deleted

YouTube’s music video for the hit song Despacito, which has had over five billion views, has been hacked.

More than a dozen other artists, including Shakira, Selena Gomez, Drake and Taylor Swift are also affected. The original clips had been posted by Vevo.

The Despacito video has been removed, but its cover image had shown a group wearing masks and pointing guns.

The hackers, calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi’sh, had written “Free Palestine” underneath the videos.

Several of the clips remain live at the time of writing.

Of those, the actual video content itself appears to be unaltered. Many titles have been changed to include the names of the hackers, but only some feature the replaced cover image.

Both YouTube and the music video hosting service Vevo have been contacted for comment.

A Twitter account that apparently belongs to one of theĀ 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.
