 "Face Security Group" Hack? Stunt? ARG?
meme-girls accounts get "hacked", but what's the real story here?

It's been literal years since I last used this account, so sorry if my formatting is off.

Here's the full story.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/03/08/cash-me-outside-girl-hacked.html

Basically, the famous/infmaous 13 year old living meme was supposedly hacked by a group calling itself the "Face Security Group". This "hack" includes strange video messages, a logo, and text in different languages.

I don't think she was hacked, and I don't think this is simply a publicity stunt. I think someone approached her with an opportunity to stay relevant, while they got their ARG off the ground.

I'll gather what videos, images, screencaptures, etc- I can and reply to this post with all of the (for lack of a better word) evidence.

I'm really interested in hearing what others opinions on this are though. Specifically an ARG communities opinions. The "Conspiracy Community" are apparently mad about it. Something about being a CIA distraction or some other barely-coherent thing.

FSG's logo. Found in the comments of a post about this on the ARG subreddit. Apparently translates into "Democracy Dies In Darkness".

Never mind, it's just viral marketing for a bad music video...really disappointed.
