Social Media Hack
On the evening of March 7th, 2017, Bregoli's Instagram and Twitter accounts appeared to have been hacked by a group calling itself FACE Security. The group has changed her bio to cryptic
Russian text that references The Washington Post's new slogan,
Democracy Dies in Darkness. It also promised to "leak" information at noon on March 8th, 2017.
As of 10:15 AM, March 8th, 2017, the 5 most recent posts on her Instagram are images and videos decrying her as "the modern day celebrity" who got famous for being disrespectful to her mother (YouTube embed of the videos shown below).
Complex speculated that digital media artist Josh Goldenberg, aka Glassface, was behind the hack and that "FACE Security" was referencing his persona. Meanwhile, the hack was covered by The Daily Beast, Refinery29, Elite Daily, and more. Some were skeptical of the hack's validity. YouTube personality
Whang! uploaded a video in which he declared that he was positive the hack is an attempt at
The hack was in fact an attempt at viral marketing, specifically for the video for the song "Juvy" by Mook Boy which stars Danielle Bregoli.
Glassface admitted to creating the hoax and video and released the following statement to Complex:
The intent of the project was to experiment with a lot of the forces we're seeing in current events today – news cycles dominated by speculation, hacking,
politics, culture, and to make it feel like all those things were imploding on each other. The project is an amalgam of memes, cultural and news talking points, culminating in a release on WorldStarHipHop. It's meant to be an all-encompassing experience for the viewer. A lot of people have opinions about Danielle, and this played with that idea – voicing what the general consensus of some people may be. It was interesting to see how polarized peoples' opinions were – some people stood up for her, while others wanted to see something negative happen. Ultimately – this whole project was accomplished with 4 pieces of visual media so I think it was a success. Also we lost a little bit of final quality when it was uploaded to WSHH – wish everyone could see the hi-res.
