The hacker, who used the handle @bfyihbfi, claimed to have leaked the video of Galvancillo’s fight on his Instagram story as well.
The hacker also posted several tweets mocking Galvancillo and promoting the video link.
The video showed Galvancillo punching and kicking another man, who appeared to be injured and bleeding, while a crowd of people watched and cheered.

They pointed out that the video looked too professional and that Galvancillo was wearing a microphone.
They also questioned why he did not report the hack sooner and why he did not delete the tweets from the hacker.
Why is the video trending?
The role of social media in making leaked videos, such as fight videos, go viral online is significant.
Social media platforms facilitate the rapid spread of such content through ease of sharing, incentives for engagement, anonymity and lack of accountability.
The visual appeal of the content and the context in which it is shared also contribute to its viral spread.
Additionally, the algorithms of social media platforms often prioritize and promote content that generates high levels of engagement, further amplifying the viral reach of leaked videos.
