Anonymous has issued a warning to Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, regarding his attitude toward Bitcoin, calling him a "narcissistic rich person" who is "desperate for attention."
Following a tweet from Musk on Bitcoin, implying that he was done with it, the multinational group posted a YouTube video, which now appears to have been deleted.
Hacker group Anonymous issued a warning to Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, on Sunday, accusing him of “liquidating dreams” and “destroying lives” with his comments on cryptocurrency. The threat was made in a video shared on Twitter by the group.
Like their previous videos, a person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask appeared on the screen and said in a digitally altered voice,
“For the past several years you have enjoyed one of the most favourable reputations of anyone in the billionaire class because you have tapped into the desire that many of us have to live in a world with electric cars and space exploration."
"For the past several years, you have had one of the most favorable reputations of anyone in the billionaire class because you have tapped into the yearning that many of us have to live in a future with electric automobiles and space exploration," a guy wearing a Guy Fawkes mask said in the video.
"But recently your carefully created public image is being exposed, and people are beginning to see you as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention.This has been obvious to your employees for a long time, who have faced intolerable conditions under your command for years. You have even prematurely crowned yourself 'Emperor of Mars', a place where you will be sending people to die."
"Your fanboys overlook these issues because they are focused on the potential good that your projects can bring to the world, but you are not the only show in town, and your competition is growing more intense with each passing day."
Musk, according to Anonymous, was the only CEO who had built a cult following by's***posting and trolling' the world on social media.
According to the group, Musk was allegedly "forced to condemn Tesla's engagement with Bitcoin" in order to maintain "that green government money flowing into Tesla's coffers. Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives."
"Of course, they took the risk upon themselves when they invested, and everyone knows to be prepared for volatility in crypto, but your tweets this week show a clear disregard for the average working person.
"As hardworking people have their dreams liquidated over your public temper tantrums, you continue to mock them with memes from one of your million-dollar mansions.
"You may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match. We are Anonymous! We are legion. Expect us."
