Ubiquitous Latin pop song by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee "Despacito," Youtube's most popular video of all time, was deleted from the website by hackers on Tuesday, according to a report by the Independent.

The hack appears to have been executed by a group that has claimed to hack countless Twitter accounts, including those run by news organizations as recently as last week. "Despacito" and many other popular videos have had their title replaced with the words "Hacked by Prosox & Kuroi'sh."

The words "Free Palestine" also appeared under the videos.

Then "Despacito" disappeared entirely, though it is unclear if that was the work of the hackers or Youtube action.

The video has since been restored, including all its comments and views.
