It Looks Like Tom Hiddleston’s Social Media Accounts Just Got Hacked

Uhhhhhhhhh, did someone hack Tom Hiddleston’s Instagram account?

Updates are still coming in, but if his account was hacked, and it looks like it probably was, the Instagram takeover started shortly after 9:10 am EST on Friday morning, when Mr. Taylor Swift and star of “The Night Manager” started posting a series of “off-brand” photos and videos to his account.

The first post featured a Snapcode linking to an account named “Pro.x.”

The story on Pro.x.’s Snapchat features two posts.

The first is the following picture, and the second is a photo of Hiddleston’s Instagram account.

There also seemed to be Middle Eastern music playing over the snaps.

The potential hacker proceeded to upload a series of photos to Hiddleston’s Instagram account.

A second Snapcode was shared on the page. There is currently no story up on this user’s Snapchat page.

Hiddleston, who started his Instagram account two weeks ago and currently boasts one million followers, also had his bio changed on his page.

So far, Tom’s Twitter account does not seem to be hacked, if this is actually a hack at all and not just Tom awkwardly trying to figure out how Snapchat works.
