You may be wondering what all those X’s on our homepage are all about. Well, today, March 8, is the International Day Without A Woman, and we’ve marked this content to let you know that it has, in some way, been touched or is influenced by a woman. From bunnies who choose to be a part of the World of Playboy, to editors working hard on creating posts, to our photo team sourcing images, to even our social media rapport, this story wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the ladies who call Playboy home. And tomorrow, when those X’s are gone, we hope you remember all the gals who worked to bring you great stories.
So as you enjoy today’s Playboy.com, remember to thank a lady: You wouldn’t be here without one.
Danielle Brigoli, better known as the feisty 13-year-old behind the Cash Me Outside meme, has been involved in an apparent hack that has taken charge of her Instagram account, which currently boasts 7.5 million followers. Brigoli, who views herself as the second coming of Oprah in terms of resurrecting Dr. Phil’s career, has yet to comment on these mysterious events, which is believed to have happened on March 7 around 1:30 p.m., just after she posted this picture above.
While many foolishly believe the hack comes courtesy of the Illuminati because of its internationally recognized triangular logo, it’s much safer to assume that this is the work of a very talented hacker—or perhaps a savvy Brigoli collaborator—who’s using Brigoli and her nonlinear approach to fame as a catalyst for its menacing message.
In a creepy video following the image above, you’ll find a Saw-like tape narrated by a creepy distorted voice, who reads the following message:
“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.”
Two hours later, another video was posted. This one read:
“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 begins Wednesday.”
A third video followed, which featured an ominous countdown to Wednesday and a flash of the American flag posed upside down.
Now that it’s Wednesday, we’ve seen the same, triangular logo resembling a mountain with “FACE Security Group” written within it. Underneath, the words “Democracy dies in darkness” are written in numerics. And under that is the number “1700” as well as “Reykjavik, Iceland” suggesting this is where the hack is based, or, as others have speculated, that something is going to happen in the nation’s capital at 5 p.m. (12 p.m. Eastern Standard time). Spooky!
As we prepped this article, another video was posted, along with the hacker’s moniker “Glassface,” who, we’ve found, is a visual artist, director and editor. This appears to be a carefully planned promotional bit for a music video that features Brigoli lip-synching to a song called “Juvy” by artist Mook Boy, as well as a bunch of other totally weird, acid-trippy visuals that include Vladimir Putin atop a flying unicorn and Kim Jong Un riding rocket ship. World Star Hip Hop was tagged.
Folks, it seems we’ve been trolled by a 13-year-old.
