Robert Downey Jr. is supposedly the next huge celebrity who’s been a victim to having their social media hacked. The Avengers: Endgame star had informed earlier today about his Instagram account being compromised, and persuading his followers to stay away from his account till the hacking situation is handled. 


Statement By Robert Downey Jr. On Instagram Hack 

Until now, there has been no indication that Downey’s Instagram page was hacked, or is currently under a hack. There have been no misleading, ridiculous or offensive posts on his account that imply it was hacked. It is possible that Downey’s PR team may have removed it before sharp-eyed fans noticed. Check out the full statement released by the Iron Man actor on his Twitter below:


“I’m sorry to say my Instagram has been compromised… Please steer clear for the time being until it’s sorted. Thank you all. I love you 3000.”
