Orlando Museum of Art (Instagram | Website) has become a victim of a social media hacker.

The local nonprofit’s 41,200 Instagram followers are being bombarded with a series of random spammy posts mostly dealing with cryptocurrency advice and cringy videos.

The hacker even posted about a presumably fake fundraising campaign for Charity for Humanity, a “crypto for Palestine” initiative drawing indignation from some commenters who didn’t realize the post was fake and not actually from the museum. Normally we’d embed them in our posts, but we’re not taking any chances and will be burning some sage as soon as we post this story.

The name on the museum’s account has also changed to “Pepe Coin.”

Orlando Museum of Art is working with Meta to reclaim their account. According to a haphazard Google search, it could take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to recover a hacked Instagram account.
