Alan Cumming’s Instagram account has been hacked by a mystery man


The Instagram account of Hollywood actor Alan Cumming has been hacked and months worth of images deleted – including shots of him in red Speedos.




The profile picture of the X-Men 2 star from Perthshire has also been changed to man who appears to be of Asian origin.


Cumming is well known for his flamboyant selfies and has 112,000 followers on the photo sharing app.


But now all his pictures posted after October last year have vanished, including images of him at his 50th birthday bash wearing a pair of red Speedos.






On his twitter page Cumming wrote: “I know there’s lots to be sad about in the world today but some dickhead hacking my @instagram and deleting my photos has really got me down.”


He’d earlier tweeted: “Hey @instagram my account has been hacked. I am @Alancummingsnaps on Instagram and someone has taken it over and renamed it @cumphotos.”


Fans have rallied round the actor urging Instagram to take action against the hack.


Billy Gollner replied: “I’m sorry to hear that. Know that you’re awesome and no one can dim your flame, keep shining bright.”


The mystery hacker’s face now appears instead of the Hollywood star’s profile picture
