A group claiming to be a member of the hacker group Anonymous posted a video on YouTube criticizing Elon Musk’s remarks on Twitter. In a video released by Anonymous, Musk’s tweet, which disrupted the crypto asset market, said it “destroyed” hard-working people.
Although the creator of the video cannot be determined to be a member of Anonymous, the video has features of past videos that are believed to have been created by members of the group.
The narrator, wearing the group’s trademark Guy Fawkes mask and using a voice changer, is like a villain in the movie “007” series, a cleverly crafted image of a visionary visionary. Said that he was only hiding that he was “just a rich narcissist trying to get attention.”
The video said Musk’s stance to stay away from Bitcoin (BTC) was due to fear that his US EV giant Tesla would lose government subsidies.
“It is widely believed that Tesla had to deny the involvement of Tesla and Bitcoin in order to continue to obtain government environmental subsidies.”
The group also claims that Musk’s establishment of the “Bitcoin Mining Council” is an attempt to dominate the industry.
The video harshly criticized Mr. Musk’s recent tweet, which has robbed the crypto asset market of billions of dollars in value.
“Millions of retail investors have sincerely hoped for the benefits of crypto assets to improve their lives … your well-known impatience has made many dreams a bubble. You own a number of mansions and keep laughing at them. “
Currently, the video has been viewed about 1.8 million times, ending with the characteristic ending of Anonymous.
“You may think you’re the smartest person in the world, but you’ve met an opponent you’re fighting for now. We’re Anonymous! We’re Legions! Wait.”
Many tweets were posted on Twitter in response to the video, but Musk tweeted what seemed to be a response on the afternoon of the 5th.
Don’t kill what you hate,
Save what you love
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 5, 2021
“Don’t kill what you hate, save what you love”
In addition, Mr. Musk’s Twitter profile picture has been changed to a black image reminiscent of Anonymous. Given Musk’s mysterious tweets so far, it may mean something different.
