Since its inception in January 2001, Wikipedia has been one of the most amazing sources of factual (!) information on the internet. It’s also the world’s foremost not-for-profit source and this aspect is the reason why people still look at it with disapproval. Because nearly anyone can contribute. There are instances where people, from time to time, slip some alternative facts in it.
From Hollywood celebrities to politicians, sportspersons to fictional characters and even scientifically proven theories, you can never be too sure if what you're reading is 100% true. Wikipedia calls it internet vandalism.
In order to combat this, Wikipedia has taken various measures such as permanently locking pages. Fortunately, these changes don’t stay on the pages for far too long. To demonstrate some of the funniest hackings, here we bring to you a list of hilarious changes on the Wikipedia pages:
