Tesla chief Elon Musk, who has succeeded in grabbing the eyeballs over his contrasting views around cryptocurrency, has now been targeted by a notorious group of hackers known as Anonymous has committed some of the biggest digital scams in the recent past.
According to the TMZ report, the anonymous account which on earlier occasions disrupted organizations including PayPal, Scientology has now targeted the Tesla CEO.
In the latest video, the group targeted Elon claiming his clout over the cryptocurrency markets, and the arrogant way he uses it gone beyond, especially when it comes to Bitcoin, which has reacted sharply to Elon’s tweet of late. Anonymous, is a coalition of self-proclaimed freedom fighters who use the “V for Vendetta” Guy Fawkes mask as their logo.
The group miffed with Musk said, said even though Elon has “positioned himself as concerned about the environment with Tesla’s pivot away from Bitcoin, he doesn’t practice what he preaches within the company itself- hurling many allegations against him and Tesla’s practices at large,” TMZ reported.
The Anonymous further criticised the Tesla CEO, saying he suffers from a “superiority complex” while quoting that the latter claims himself to be the “Emperor of Mars” – and that the business leader is constantly hurting working-class people and their prospects by his crypto trolling.
While concluding the video, the aggrieved group said he thinks “Elon is not a friend to the common man”, something they considered themselves to be.
Musk had recently announced that the company has stopped accepting bitcoin as payment for its cars over concerns that it will contribute to greater consumption of fossil fuels. However, it added that it would resume accepting bitcoin as soon as mining transitioned to more sustainable energy. Tesla had only just started accepting bitcoin in late March.
On Sunday, Musk had once again impacted the movement of digital coins in the market through his social media posts saying, “Goods & Services are the real economies, any form of money is simply the accounting thereof.”
