Carryislive was targeted because of his reach and popularity. Few days back, Carryminati did a charity stream to raise donation for Assam & Bihar floods. Through that stream, he raised about 10.31 Lakhs rupees. Later he added 1 Lakh from his side and donated all the money to the relief funds.
This hacking thing is concerning other small creators. YouTube’s security system is being questioned by the users. In response to Carryminati’s tweet, Team YouTube said “We’re really sorry this happened. Mind following us so we can continue with next steps over DM?” Viewers are requesting YouTube to recheck their policies and upgrade the security system.
Till now, there’s no more activity shown by the hacker on Carryislive. Let’s wait for the officials to do something regarding this matter.
