El Galvancillo's Instagram was allegedly hacked.

The details surrounding El Galvancillo's discovery that his Instagram was possibly hacked are a little suspicious. During a TikTok Live with his girlfriend, comments about El Galvancillo's Instagram stories started rolling in. Instead of shutting down the TikTok Live, his gal pal grabbed her phone to see what all the fuss was about. What the couple saw was pretty revealing, literally.

El Galvancillo's normally tame Insagram stories were filled with lewd screen shots and videos that he allegedly did not post. And while El Galvancillo isn't in any of them, his girlfriend's face told a rather annoyed story.

TikTok user @_lexcybernal_ uploaded the TikTok Live to her own page, where folks had some interesting things to say.

One user said that El Galvancillo claimed he was hacked by an ex-girlfriend, who had those videos saved to her own phone. Another astute commenter pointed out the fact that some of the videos featured adult models. Most commenters were shook by what they saw, though plenty claimed to have screen recorded the incident.

El Galvancillo insists he was hacked.

While Instagram is looking into what happened, El Galvancillo's account has been disabled.

His record label, Slab Records, shared a statement to their Instagram about the sassy situation. "On the night of April 5, 2023, the account of Lorenzo Galvan Ochoa, known as 'Galvancillo,' was hacked," read the statement. "Various intimate, very personal things are circulating in the account with the intention of tarnishing their image and reputation. We are working to find the whereabouts of those responsible."

On Thursday, April 6, El Galvancillo posted a TikTok where he is out at a restaurant with what appears to be family members. There is a caption over video of him sipping a drink that translated to English reads, "I already found you, hacker. Wait for your demand." He looks pretty pleased with himself which suggests this wild ride might be over soon.
