- Indian Youtuber Carry Minati had his second channel ‘CarryIsLive’ hacked in a similar fashion to the hacking that took place in Twitter.
- Public’s reaction to the hacking is hilarious.
Carry Minati’s second YouTube channel, ‘CarryIsLive’ was hacked, with the hackers asking for bitcoin donations. Earlier, Twitter was in for a major surprise when high profile people had their Twitter accounts hacked.
In a similar fashion, ‘CarryIsLive’ was hacked with the hackers livestreaming videos on the channel and asking for bitcoin donations. Soon after the hack, Minati immediately took to Twitter to inform YouTube about the incident, asking for “immediate assistance.”
Carry Minati aka Ajey Nagar had received a prompt response from YouTube. It first apologised in a reply to the tweet and asked for him to connect over DMs to discuss the next steps.
CarryIsLive has around 6.67 million subscribers and the channel mostly consist of gaming videos. Carry Minati’s main YouTube channel (CarryMinati) has around 24 million subscribers.
Hackers had also reportedly changed the description of the account with account details. The hackers are said to have streamed CarryMinati’s old Bihar Charity stream with the description for Bitcoin’s address to trick subscribers.
The hacking became apparent when fans noticed that the content streaming live was far from the normal content Minati usually posts on his second channel.
The incident happened within a week since Minati did a fundraiser on the channel to raise money for Assam and Bihar floods. Through his channel’s charity stream he had raised Rs 10,31,137 and decided to donate another Rs 1 lakh from his own pocket to the fund and help in relief operations.
Carry Minati took to Instagram to inform his 9 million followers that his channel had been hacked and notified that he and his team are working to get back his channel.
However, Carry Minati was able to get back his channel relatively fast due to the immediate response of YouTube.
But the public’s reaction to the hacking is nothing short of hilarious.
