Boss Logic, the popular graphic designer even tweeted that the hackers have changed Robert’s recovery email account making it more difficult for the account to be recovered. However, RDJ’s account has been recovered.

Seems like the hackers were smart enough to not change anything in his account except for the bio and who knows they might have succeeded in fooling a couple of million people.
