Spanish song ‘Despacito’ which recently became the first video in the history to reach 5 billion views on Youtube, was temporary deleted. A small number of high profile Vevo account hacks led to this.

The clip’s cover image was replaced with a photo showing a group of people wearing masks and pointing guns.

The hackers, calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi’sh, had replaced some of the videos’ titles with their own messages, including a call to “free Palestine” alongside their own nicknames.

The video was temporarily taken offline until the problem was fixed.
