If you tried to watch the "Despacito" video on YouTube yesterday morning, you were DENIED . . . because hackers were briefly able to block access to that video and other ones by artists like Shakira, Adele, Taylor Swift, and Drake.
They put up a creepy image of masked criminals . . . but it was actually just a still from the Netflix show "Money Heist". The videos themselves were not altered, but the titles and descriptions were altered on the page.
Naturally, it wasn't long before people noticed . . . even after 5 BILLION views people STILL want to watch "Despacito" . . . so not long afterward, YouTube had restored the videos, along with their massive view counts.
