Cosplay Instagram Star Belle Delphine Trolls Followers With PornHub Account

Published

on

  • Instagrammer Belle Delphine posted a photo saying she would create a Pornhub account if the post reached one million likes.
  • The post hit the goal and as promised she created an account.
  • However, internet users were surprised to find trolling videos instead of the porn they expected.
  • Some found her prank to be funny, while others were upset they did not get the content they felt they were promised.

Delphine’s Instagram Promise

Belle Delphine’s 3.5 million Instagram followers know her for her racy cosplay. But now, her most recent claim to fame is being a troll.

On Sunday, Delphine posted a photo of herself in an even more scantily clad ensemble than usual. She paired it with a high-stakes caption.

“If this photo gets 1 MILLION likes I’ll actually make a pornhub account,” she wrote in her post, which coincided with Father’s Day. “The time has officially come. Tag Ur friends/dad to help out!”

Naturally, thirsty internet users flocked to Instagram to eagerly double-tap the picture. The post reached well over the required likes and currently sits at over 1.8 million.

Pornhub even commented on the post saying, “This is the best news I’ve heard all year.”

The next day, Delphine congratulated her followers for rising to the challenge and assured them that content was on the way. On Thursday, she announced that she had followed through with her promise.

Delphine Creates Troll Pornhub Account

However, once fans arrived at Delphine’s Pornhub page, they quickly realized that they had been pranked. While each video has a provocative title, none of them were the porn videos people expected to see.

One video called “PEWDIEPIE goes all the way INSIDE Belle Delphine” depicts Delphine biting and chewing a picture of the famous YouTuber. She appears to spit most of it back out and it is unclear if she actually eats any of the photo.

Another video called “BELLE DELPHINE GETS SCISSORED” shows the Instagrammer cutting a piece of paper while making sexually suggestive noises.

Internet Users React

Many users were upset with the content Delphine uploaded. Each of the twelve videos is disliked somewhere between 66 to 77 percent.

“I’m disappointed, blue balled and deceived,” one user commented on her Instagram.

“Can we get massive unfollow boys,” another said. “She doesn’t deserve it plus you can just view her content without following.”

On the other hand, others found humor in her prank.

“Seeing people beeing [sic] mad because a girl decides to not doing porn is hilarious,” one user wrote. “Good joke, Delphine. I had a good laugh.”

Another compared her to the seminal modern American artist Andy Warhol.

Both Delphine and Pornhub seemed to find the fun in her prank. The two tweeted at each other in reference to the video where she “eats” PewDiePie.

Jake Paul Says He “Can’t Get Cancelled” as a Boxer

Published

on

The controversial YouTuber opened up about what it has been like to go from online fame to professional boxing.


The New Yorker Profiles Jake Paul

YouTuber and boxer Jake Paul talked about his career switch, reputation, and cancel culture in a profile published Monday in The New Yorker. 

While Paul rose to fame as the Internet’s troublemaker, he now spends most of his time in the ring. He told the outlet that one difference between YouTube and boxing is that his often controversial reputation lends better to his new career. 

“One thing that is great about being a fighter is, like, you can’t get cancelled,” Paul said. The profile noted that the sport often rewards and even encourages some degree of bad behavior.

“I’m not a saint,” Paul later continued. “I’m also not a bad guy, but I can very easily play the role.”

Paul also said the other difference between his time online and his time in boxing is the level of work. While he says he trains hard, he confessed that there was something more challenging about making regular YouTube content. 

“Being an influencer was almost harder than being a boxer,” he told The New Yorker. “You wake up in the morning and you’re, like, Damn, I have to create fifteen minutes of amazing content, and I have twelve hours of sunlight.”

Jake Paul Vs. Tommy Fury

The New Yorker profile came just after it was announced over the weekend Paul will be fighting boxer Tommy Fury in an 8-round cruiserweight fight on Showtime in December. 

“It’s time to kiss ur last name and ur family’s boxing legacy goodbye,” Paul tweeted. “DEC 18th I’m changing this wankers name to Tommy Fumbles and celebrating with Tom Brady.”

Both Paul and Fury are undefeated, according to ESPN. Like Paul, Fury has found fame outside of the sport. He has become a reality TV star in the U.K. after appearing on the hit show “Love Island.”

Hackers Hit Twitch Again, This Time Replacing Backgrounds With Image of Jeff Bezos

Published

on

The hack appears to be a form of trolling, though it’s possible that the infiltrators were able to uncover a security flaw while reviewing Twitch’s newly-leaked source code.


Bezos Prank

Hackers targeted Twitch for a second time this week, but rather than leaking sensitive information, the infiltrators chose to deface the platform on Friday by swapping multiple background images with a photo of former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. 

According to those who saw the replaced images firsthand, the hack appears to have mostly — and possibly only — affected game directory headers. Though the incident appears to be nothing more than a surface-level prank, as Amazon owns Twitch, it could potentially signal greater security flaws. 

For example, it’s possible the hackers could have used leaked internal security data from earlier this week to discover a network vulnerability and sneak into the platform. 

The latest jab at the platforms came after Twitch assured its users it has seen “no indication” that their login credentials were stolen during the first hack. Still, concerns have remained regarding the potential for others to now spot cracks in Twitch’s security systems.

It’s also possible the Bezos hack resulted from what’s known as “cache poisoning,” which, in this case, would refer to a more limited form of hacking that allowed the infiltrators to manipulate similar images all at once. If true, the hackers likely would not have been able to access Twitch’s back end. 

The photo changes only lasted several hours before being returned to their previous conditions. 

First Twitch Hack 

Despite suspicions and concerns, it’s unclear whether the Bezos hack is related to the major leak of Twitch’s internal data that was posted to 4chan on Wednesday.

That leak exposed Twitch’s full source code — including its security tools — as well as data on how much Twitch has individually paid every single streamer on the platform since August 2019. 

It also revealed Amazon’s at least partially developed plans for a cloud-based gaming library, codenamed Vapor, which would directly compete with the massively popular library known as Steam.

Even though Twitch has said its login credentials appear to be secure, it announced Thursday that it has reset all stream keys “out of an abundance of caution.” Users are still being urged to change their passwords and update or implement two-factor authentication if they haven’t already.

Twitch Blames Server Configuration Error for Hack, Says There’s No Indication That Login Info Leaked

Published

on

The platform also said full credit card numbers were not reaped by hackers, as that data is stored externally. 


Login and Credit Card Info Secure

Twitch released a security update late Wednesday claiming it had seen “no indication” that users’ login credentials were stolen by hackers who leaked the entire platform’s source code earlier in the day.

“Full credit card numbers are not stored by Twitch, so full credit card numbers were not exposed,” the company added in its announcement.

The leaked data, uploaded to 4chan, includes code related to the platform’s security tools, as well as exact totals of how much it has individually paid every single streamer on the platform since August 2019. 

Early Thursday, Twitch also announced that it has now reset all stream keys “out of an abundance of caution.” Streamers looking for their new keys can visit a dashboard set up by the platform, though users may need to manually update their software with the new key before being able to stream again depending on what kind of software they use.

As far as what led to the hackers being able to steal the data, Twitch blamed an error in a “server configuration change that was subsequently accessed by a malicious third party,” confirming that the leak was not the work of a current employee who used internal tools. 

Will Users Go to Other Streaming Platforms?

While no major creators have said they are leaving Twitch for a different streaming platform because of the hack, many small users have either announced their intention to leave Twitch or have said they are considering such a move. 

It’s unclear if the leak, coupled with other ongoing Twitch controversies, will ultimately lead to a significant user exodus, but there’s little doubt that other platforms are ready and willing to leverage this hack in the hopes of attracting new users. 

At least one big-name streamer has already done as much, even if largely only presenting the idea as a playful jab rather than with serious intention. 

“Pretty crazy day today,” YouTube’s Valkyrae said on a stream Wednesday while referencing a tweet she wrote earlier the day.

“YouTube is looking to sign more streamers,” that tweet reads. 

I mean, they are! … No shade to Twitch… Ah! Well…” Valkyrae said on stream before interrupting herself to note that she was not being paid by YouTube to make her comments.
