YouTube Gamer Boogie2988 has his channel hacked and closed

YouTube Boogie2988 had his channel hacked and closed today.

One of the biggest gaming YouTubers, Boodie2988, also known as Francis was hacked recently. His channel was also closed but not deleted. In a post he made on Reddit, he stated that he was hacked using his phone number.

With his number, the hacker was able to gain access to everything -- and Boogie makes a point to say that this has happened before. He wants everyone to know not to trust anything posted by him on any kind of social media until you see a video on his YouTube channel from him stating that he has things under control again. 

The guy that did this to Boogie even had the balls to take to Twitter to brag about what he had done. In the comments of this Tweet, "Lurch" says he doesn't have anything against Boogie or his YouTube channel and will let him have it back in a day or so. What the point of that is is beyond me, honestly. 

Right now Boogie's channel looks about the same, except there is no profile picture. Earlier in the day his videos were gone as well -- but they have since been restored by YouTube. I hope that Boogie gets this channel back up and running soon. He is such a nice guy and it's a shame that something like this had to happen to him. 


I'm 26 years old from Chicago. I have been playing video games almost all of my life, the first game I remember playing is Super Mario Bros on the Snes. Currently, I mostly play PC games but I also own a Xbox One, Xbox360, Wii, WiiU and a Ps3. My favorite game of all time is Fallout 3 and my favorite game series is either Gears of War or Bioshock. You can find me on Steam as Juan_Snow and on Xbox live as gearsfreak926

    People are assholes, why they hell did he even do it? I can sort of understand if he does it because he hates boogie, or some other contrived reason, but for the soul purpose of just being an ass is kinda pathetic.

    Thanks for bringing this to attention, I haven't been on Youtube much lately and I'm a big fan of boogie.
