AOMG later confirmed in a statement that the label’s YouTube channel had indeed been compromised. The statement also added that the company was able to “restore the channel as it was before the attack.”

However, AOMG also noted that the channel was subsequently deleted “for the contents presented by the hacker [which] violated YouTube’s harmful or dangerous content policies”.

“We are doing our best to bring the original AOMGOFFICIAL channel and its contents back,” the label added. “We apologize for your inconvenience and we promise to repair the channel as soon as possible.”

AOMG is a South Korean hip-hop and R&B label founded by rapper Jay Park in 2013. The label’s roster of artists includes the likes of Lee Hi, Simon Dominic, Gray, Loco, Hoody, Code Kunst and GOT7’s Yugyeom, among many others.
