Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to have been targeted by a notorious group of hackers who are responsible for some of the biggest digital scams in recent history.
According to TMZ, the anonymous account has caused a lot of trouble for various organisations, including PayPal, and Scientology is now targeting Tesla CEO.
They released the latest video in which they targeted Elon, claiming that the power he wields over cryptocurrency markets and the arrogant manner in which he wields it has gone too far, particularly in relation to Bitcoin, which has recently reacted uncontrollably to Elon’s words.
According to Anonymous, despite Elon’s “positioning himself as concerned about the environment with Tesla’s pivot away from Bitcoin,” he “doesn’t practise what he preaches within the company itself- hurling many allegations against him and Tesla’s practises at large,” TMZ reported.
On a more personal level, the anonymous slammed Elon, saying he has a “superiority complex” – noting that he once dubbed himself the “Emperor of Mars” – and that his constant crypto trolling is harming working-class people and their prospects.
In concluding his complaint, the anonymous stated that “Elon is not a friend to the common man,” which they considered themselves to be.
Elon recently announced that the company will no longer accept bitcoin as payment for its vehicles due to concerns that it will increase the consumption of fossil fuels.
On Wednesday, the business magnate and SpaceX founder issued a statement on the subject via Twitter. Tesla had only recently begun accepting bitcoin in late March.
The 49-year-old industrial designer also stated that Tesla will no longer sell any of the USD 1.5 billion in bitcoin stashes it purchased earlier this year. Tesla sold some of that bitcoin in the first quarter of 2021, helping to boost the company’s quarterly profit figures.
Elon has also promoted Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency in which Tesla has not invested. Dogecoin, which was created as a joke to satirise bitcoin, has been dubbed his favourite cryptocurrency and “the people’s crypto.”
