MANILA - The Instagram account of teen superstar Daniel Padilla was hacked on Monday, according to onscreen partner and rumored girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo.
On Twitter, the 19-year-old actress called the attention of her fans, urging them to "spread the word" about the hacking and ignore further posts on Padilla's account, which has the username @seriousblack_.
As of writing, the account has been put to private.
Padilla and Bernardo had just finished a series of shows in the United States for Filipinos based there, and were in transit back to the Philippines when the hacking happened.
Meanwhile, fans of Padilla guessed on Twitter how their idol would address the situation. They speculated that he would simply change his username on Instagram, making "#GuessDJsNewIGUsername" a nationwide trend on the micro-blogging site.
The hacking of Padilla's Instagram account follows a controversial tweet from fellow Star Magic artist Angelica Panganiban, referencing her sex life.
The actress on Monday said her Twitter account was hacked, and called out the culprit, saying sarcastically: "Uy hacker... Binalik mo nga. Salamat ah. Tatanawin ko tong utang na loob sayo."
