Hackers don’t often care to play the role of parent to celebrity, but in the most recent hack, the girl who became famous for her appearance on Dr. Phil saying “Cash Me Outside”, Danielle Bregoli, has her Twitter and Instagram accounts hacked Tuesday by an unknown group that claims they are upset at the girl’s infamous disrespect and undeserved celebrity status.
Self-named “Face Security Group,” the entity that claims to have hacked and taken over Bregoli’s Instagram site, changed the girl’s name to a mix of Cyrillic text and the Russian translation of the “Democracy Dies in Darkness”, which also happens to be the Washington Post’s new motto.
Her profile picture was also changed to feature their logo.
The group posted three videos to her account, which threaten that something unspecified will happen, in addition to a “leak” on Wednesday, as well as a cryptic countdown.
The first clip stated: “This is the modern day celebrity. This country glorifies and makes famous a young girl for being disrespectful to her mother. She is no role model. She is no idol. She is no God. Pay close attention to what happens next.”
In a second video they posted two hours after the first, a voiceover said: “Citizens of the world. Too long we have stood by idly and observed. It is time we take matters into our own hands. The time for change is now. The leaks begin Wednesday.”
The third video, posted again after a two-hour break, was simply that of a clock counting down 19 hours.
Bregoli immediately set up her new, duplicate account and shrugged off the incident of the hacking, saying “My account got hacked. I will be taking my account back soon. Follow this one until then.”
Bregoli only obtained her fame after appearing on Dr. Phil, for one segment named “I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime.”
Bregoli said to the television doctor of the relationship she has with her: “I’m pretty violent. Either I’m breaking down her door or she’s breaking down my door. I don’t stop till I start seeing dents in the door. I steal cars. I steal her credit card. I ain’t gonna lie, there’s no reason to lie.”
