MA video on YouTube purporting to be from the hacker organization Anonymous targeting Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk
The video says that Musk’s tweets disrupted the cryptocurrency market and had “destroyed the lives of hardworking people.”
The video members have the nature and name of the decentralized hacker organization. It is impossible to be 100% sure that Anonymous members created the video. The video still has all the characteristics of past videos, made by group members.
Anonymous is a decentralized international activist movement. The group is widely known for its various cyberattacks on multiple governments, government agencies, companies, and churches of science.
The video narrator is wearing the organization’s iconic Guy Fawkes mask and using a voice changer. The narrator accuses Elon Musk of being nothing more than a Bond villain, a “rich” dude with a desperate need of attention.
The video focused on Musk’s recent involvement in cryptocurrencies and claimed that Musk rejected Bitcoin (BTC, -0.24%).
“It is now widely believed that to allow green government funds to flow into Tesla’s vault, you are forced to condemn your company’s involvement in Bitcoin,” the video said.
The hacker group further claimed that Elon Musk’s recent move to create the Bitcoin Miners Committee was to control the industry
The video retains some of Musk’s harshest recent comments. These tweets have helped erase billions of dollars in value from the crypto market. Video is stating that “millions of retail investors count on their crypto earnings Improve their lives… Yet, as hardworking people let their dreams be liquidated because of your public development temper, you continue to laugh at them with the meme of one of your million-dollar mansions.”
The video has received 1.2 million views as of press time, ending with a change in the organization’s signature. “You may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your opponent. We are anonymous! We are the Legion! Look forward to us.”
Although many people have posted copies of the video on Elon Musk’s Twitter, Tesla’s CEO has not yet responded directly. However, Musk did post a tweet on Saturday afternoon that could be a response. He still made a simple tweet about it: “Don’t kill the things you hate. Save the things you love”. In addition, Elon Musk’s profile picture changed to a completely filled black circle. It can be used as the most relevant color reference for anonymous.
