Instagram model Lindsey Pelas was the latest celebrity to be preyed upon by an infamous group of online hackers who not only released nude photos of the star but also made death threats to the White House on her Twitter feed.
The voluptuous 28-year-old became victim Thursday evening when her social media platforms, including Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat, began spouting out graphic messages and nude photos.
Pelas’ Twitter account taunted that it was “hacked,” and even tagged the platform’s CEO, Jack Dorsey in the messages.
The hackers, who were spewing hateful racist language, also made a threat to the White House, “im gonna bomb the white house @ 1600 pennsylvania ave washington” the message read. It also tagged President Donald Trump and Dorsey.
On Pelas’ Instagram, where she has amassed 9 million followers, photos that appeared to show the model nude during behind-the-scenes shots at photo shoots began to populate on her feed.
The photos were bugged with the moniker “Chuckling Squad,” which is the same group that took responsibility for hacking Demi Lovato‘s social media last week.
As we reported, the hackers took control of Lovato’s Snapchat and released nude photos while trying to get people to join their Discord channel.
Once again, the Chuckling Squad was touting their Discord channel with promises of more leaked photos and videos of the social media star.
Luckily, Pelas’ friends knew something was up with her channels and immediately began commenting that the model was hacked and everyone should report her posts.
Within an hour, it seemed that the incendiary messages and photos were taken down and Pelas had assumed control of her platforms.
She has not addressed the hacking yet, and it’s unclear if law enforcement has been made aware of the invasion of privacy.
