Russian Hackers Have Gone After Britney Spears

Britney Spears is an icon for many reasons. She literally taught us all how to dress like a slut before we even really knew what dressing like a slut was, her 2004 “Im A Slave 4 U” performance is in VMA history, plus I have seldom entered a room without first screaming Its Britney, bitch!!! And my name is not fucking Britney, or even Brittany. With her Las Vegas residency solidified, it’d be hard to argue that Britney Spears has not earned her place in the pop music hall of fame. I mean, the woman was a Mousketeer for fuck’s sake. More recently, Britney has developed an iconic Instagram personality, where she regularly treats us to daily affirmations, incredible TBTs featuring all your favorite 90s celebs, and just straight-up memes that would be right at home on your great aunts Facebook page:

Britney has even been known to throw in a stock photo of corn every once in a while, just to keep us on our toes.


It’s honestly too good to be true mmmm

And my personal favorite, this video of her being scared by her two young sons and screaming bloody murder like only a woman who became a famous sex symbol at 16 and has probably had multiple stalkers could:

But just like everything that is good and pure in this world, Britneys Instagram has enemies. Foreign enemies. Formerly communist foreign enemies.

Thats right, like our democracy, Britney Spears Instagram has reportedly been compromised by Russian hackers. Putin, you have finally gone too far.

The hackers, collectively known as Turla, apparently used the comment section of Britneys Insta to spread malware and attack the one thing that Britney loves most: her fans.

This all started back in February, when an Insta user by the name of @asmith215 commented #2hot make loved to her, uupss #Hot #X, which is a fairly accurate representation of the average Instagram commenters literacy level. Apparently, because computers, this moment was actually a hidden code for a link that would help these hackers steal your data and infect your computer with malicious software. Or something. I literally know nothing about computers beyond how to type and that sometimes if you turn it off and then on again everything is magically fixed.

According to :

This just goes to show you that, in 2017, nothing is sacred. Not even the comment section of Britney Spears Instagram. Also, dont comment on celebrities Instagram posts. Not just because it makes you look like a psycho, but because it literally might get you hacked.
