Uh-oh! Tom Hiddleston is the newest celebrity victim of vicious Internet hackers. The actor’s new Instagram account was hacked on Aug. 25, and whoever the mischief was, posted some really odd content!
Those pesky hackers! Tom had set up his Instagram two weeks ago, only to have it taken over by trolls. The unusual happened, when a weird illustration of a hooded man appeared on his timeline. The black and white image was really spooky and was linked to @ikp, which is presumed to be the culprit of the hacking. On the @ikp page, the account showed a screen grab of Tom’s, 35, page, captioned with, “done.” This is definitely weird, considering the Avengers star’s previous pics consisted of him doing charity work and on set of his various films.
Poor Tom, he didn’t stand a chance! Other mysterious posts appeared on his page, including another illustration of an animated character holding a butcher knife and a crazy look on his face! Whoa, even this is scarier than Tom’s character Loki, which he plays in the Marvel superhero franchise. Despite the creepy images, there doesn’t seem to be anything sinister going on here. The last photo, which was later deleted simply asks fans to follow another account by the name of @rjz. So it looks like some one was just trying to gain more followers.

Although Taylor Swift’s, 26, boyfriend wasn’t a victim of any serious foul play, he isn’t the only celebrity to be hacked recently. Unfortunately, Ghostbusters star, Leslie Jones, 48, was on the receiving end of a malicious plan to humiliate her after her personal website was hacked, and her private, nude images were blasted on the web. Thankfully, her account was taken down, but it’s still a terrible incident to have to experience. And Kylie Jenner, 19, has also had her hacking moment, when some one got into her Twitter account and posted a series of bizarre tweets. But Kylizzle played it off like a true boss, letting the hackers “have fun with it.”
This celebrity hacking problem is SO not cool, but we might want to suggest Tom and others get a much trickier password next time around. But we’re sure for now, Tom is just laughing this one off.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of the insane hacking posts on Tom’s Instagram.
