Most Watched YouTube Video Ever, Despacito, Which Was 'Deleted' in an Apparent Hack, is Back

Updated On 10 Apr, 2018 Published On

A few hours ago, Luis Fonsi's record-breaking video for Despacito apparently was unavailable or appeared to have deleted from Youtube in an apparent hack. But fortunately, for a few minutes now, the previously deleted video is streaming back on the 39-year-old singer's official YouTube channel LuisFonsiVEVO.

Just five days after the announcement that the video ft. Daddy Yankee had become the first YouTube video in history to reach 5 Billion views, it disappeared.

Song Despacito, whose title of the song means "slowly", also became the most-streamed song in the world after reaching 4.6bn plays.

While the video was unavailable, several masked figures aiming guns at the camera, which isn't a "Despacito" video's scene, appeared on the screen.

More than a dozen other artists, including Taylor Swift, Shakira, Selena Gomez, and Drake have also been affected.

The hackers, calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'sh, wrote "Free Palestine" beneath the videos.
