Many of the videos also referred to an unknown user named Joe and a private Instagram account with the handle @lucifer, which has over 11,000 followers. Dixie's account bio was also changed to "follow @koiiddd on Instagram".
After disabling Dixie's account, the TikTok hackers then moved onto her father Marc D'Amelio's TikTok account. Marc, who had almost 9 million followers, also had similar videos shared to his account referring to the @lucifer Instagram account and some had the hashtag "#FuckTheDamelios". The hackers also threatened to attack Dixie's sister Charli D'Amellio's profile next, however, at the time of writing, her account hasn't been compromised.
Dixie responded to the hack on a TikTokRoom Instagram post with the comment: "I guess dixie123 was a bad password." Well, at least she's taking it ok.
According to TikTok sources, Dixie is currently in the process of recovering her account. They’re also restoring her father's account too.
