The issue in GetHuman-cshallic's own words
I believe Facebook owns Instagram - my Instagram was recently hacked, and the email (and subsequently username) changed. I could not log in to my account, @Axyzel, today when I attempted it. I went to check my email and found it to have been accessed by an unknown device last Thursday, and the email changed against my will. I tried to change it back but the link no longer worked. I primarily used the account for cosplay and to talk with friends, so it is important to me that I get it back. Further information can be given upon email, and ideally I would like the account reverted to my ownership and username as soon as possible, as well as a change of password to keep hackers out.
GetHuman-cshallic did not yet indicate what Facebook should do to make this right.
I have an issue with Facebook too
How GetHuman-cshallic fixed the problem
Honestly, I just gave up and made a new account with two factor authentication so it won't happen again. I'm planning on changing my username back when it is free, but if you need to, I recommend doing what the other customer recommended. (It likely wouldn't have worked for me as mine doesn't exist anymore)
