Elon Musk targeted by Anonymous hacking group that threatens to expose him while branding CEO a 'narcissistic rich dude'
ELON Musk appears to have been targeted by Anonymous as the hacking group released a menacing video threatening to expose the Tesla CEO
The group of hackers who use the V for Vendetta mask as their logo reportedly targeted Musk claiming that the power he has over the cryptocurrency markets has gone far enough, TMZ reported.
They warned the Tesla CEO saying “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.”
Anonymous was responsible for some of the world’s largest cyber attacks.
The group is understood to have carried out some of the largest digital breaches that impacted PayPal and the Church of Scientology, among others.
“For the past several years you have enjoyed one of the most favorable 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,” the group 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,” they added, according to the Daily Mail.
In the video, the group also accused Musk of not committing to what he preaches when it comes to Tesla’s practices in environmental advocacy.
“It is also obvious to the young children working in your overseas lithium mines which are destroying the local environment as well. You have been open about your willingness to stage coups in order to install dictators in places where your toxic products are being mined,” the group said.
Anonymous also criticized Musk for branding himself as the “Emperor of Mars” and that he is harming the working class by “constantly trolling” the crypto markets, according to TMZ.
“You have even prematurely crowned yourself 'Emperor of Mars,' a place where you will be sending people to die,” they said.
The group’s threats received some reactions on social media as one Twitter user said that Tesla stock will not be good tomorrow.
