AOMG's official YouTube channel remains down after hack
Independent hip-hop record label AOMG released an official statement Wednesday to confirm that its official YouTube channel was hacked on Monday. The channel has 1.81 million subscribers.
“We managed to restore the channel as it was before the attack, however, the channel was shut down by YouTube for the contents presented by the hacker violated YouTube’s harmful or dangerous contents policies,” the statement said. “We are doing our best to bring the original AOMGOFFICIAL channel and its contents back.
