Worst Hackers Of All Time Target Niall Horan's Instagram Account On His Birthday
Can we not just let him live?
Nothing says 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YOU WONDERFUL GOLDEN HAIRED CHERUB' like someone hacking your Instagram account and posting a load of pics tagging their own accounts really, does it?
At least that's what has happened to resident One Direction blonde bombshell Niall Horan, who not only turns 23 today, but was welcomed into his 24th year on the planet with some dastardly internet scoundrel breaking into his account.
Calling themselves 'TEAM ERROR', the hacker proceeded to ask people to follow their own Instas and also their Snapchat accounts in a stream of screenshots and pretty odd videos.
After fans alerted him to what was going on, Nialler was quick to address the breach and casually poke fun at their frankly quite terrible efforts at being a hacker.
Because it's one thing to hack someone's account but if you tag yourself, the army of Directioners who have their backs are clearly going to be pretty speedy at reporting your handle so you are banned from your own accounts too.
Something mad is goin on with my insta," he said. "Clearly some fool hacked it but they tagged themselves in it..."
Amen to that, Nialler.
Luckily Instagram were quick to sort things out and the posts were speedily deleted while Niall regained control of his profile.
So yeah, happy birthday Niall and we shake our proverbial fist at the person breaching his privacy on today of all days.
