With the MySpace and LinkedIn data breaches and the subsequent revelation of Mark Zuckerberg's underwhelming, simplistic password -- dadada -- it seems like we're all vulnerable to hacks. A number of musicians have fallen prey to hackers in the first half of 2016, from Drake to Katy Perry, with most barely blinking an eye.
Typically, celebrity hacks involve promotion of the hacker's social media account and inflammatory, bigoted statements. All of that stands in stark contrast to the current crop of PR-trained (and generally liberal-leaning) musicians, so the vast majority of people who see a hacked Twitter account are no longer fooled by it. Five years ago, it was a shock -- today, most people just shrug.
Katy Perry's Twitter was hacked towards the end of May and filled with explicit messages and Twitter account promotion that didn't fool her 89 million followers.
