Mexican weather girl and social media star Yanet Garcia has become the latest victim of a scam created by hackers pretending to share intimate videos of the celebrities, losing control of her popular Instagram account on Monday, September 16.

Garcia became a viral sensation back in 2015 when YouTube channel Ozzy Man Reviews uploaded a video about her, garnering over 20 million views in the four years since its release.

Since then, Garcia has dated well-known Call of Duty player Doug ‘Censor’ Martin, and amassed over 11 million followers on her Instagram account. However, the 28-year-old has seemingly lost access to her account.

Early on September 16, Garcia’s verified account began undergoing a number of changes, with the bio, story, and posts all being updated by whoever has control of the page.

In a new post uploaded to the page, an image showing photoshopped version of Garcia in a state of undress telling the account’s followers to go to the page’s Story, and swipe up to access an alleged  tape of the actress.

The account’s bio was also changed to mention the purported video and includes a link that Instagram users are advised not to click on. The hackers used an image taken from a modeling shoot performed by Garcia to advertise the same URL on her story.

The web address found in the story and her bio is a TinyURL link, which when clicked on asks users to enter their personal information to win prizes such as an H&M gift card or Fortnite V-Bucks. Instagram users are advised not to visit this site, and not to enter any details.

Garcia is aware of the hack, posting images on Twitter and tweeting at Instagram to help her and return access of the account to its rightful owner, and proof that the hackers had tampered with her images.

The 28-year-old isn’t the only one to be targeted by hackers, with Pussycat Doll and former X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger suffering from a similar issue on Sunday, September 15.

Update: 8:29 AM EST

Yanet Garcia has regained access to her Instagram account, and removed the images and links from her bio, updating to include her business email.

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
