The video first appeared on Anonymous’ YouTube channel and has been shared on Twitter ever since. We hear the warped voice of a man speaking in the video, as captions give more clarity over what he is saying. We see a person on screen who appears wearing the Guy Fawkes mask and a black hoodie.
In the video, the hacker group claims that the Tesla CEO has too much power over the cryptocurrency markets. They also expressed they had grown tired of the way he appears to be dismissive in his attitude towards the cryptocurrency market.
The Hacking group’s message to his tweet from Friday, June 4, when the Tesla CEO posted a tweet that said had Bitcoin’s symbol and a broken heart emoji.
The tweet reportedly sent Bitcoin plunging during the day’s trading hours.
In their video to Elon, Anonymous did not hesitate to show their frustration towards the billionaire.
The group said, “People are beginning to see you are nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention.”
They further went on to say, that Elon’s quest to save the world was more rooted in superiority and saviour complex than an actual concern for humanity.
The Hacking Group, Anonymous did not hold back in attacking the business agent saying, “Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives.”
The group further pointed to Elon’s early roots in South Africa saying, “You were born into the stolen wealth of a South African apartheid emerald mine and have no clue what struggle is like for most of the working people in the world.”
Anonymous also said, “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.”

Twitter reacts to Hacking Group Anonymous’ video of Elon Musk
Twitter was filled with mixed reactions when it came to Anonymous’ video. Some users turned it into a joke while others started picking sides.
One user said, ” I like Elon. I don’t want anything bad to happen to him. I like the drama, but I don’t actually trust “anonymous” honestly – but they are making some points that people should think about. I don’t think it will be easy to take Elon down!”
Another user wrote, “I could not agree more!!! He promoted the worst environmentally-friendly coin in history and then sold it before announcing Tesla wouldn’t accept it anymore, and then buys $DOGE and promotes that garbage.”
A third user wrote, “That Video is hilarious and that shows me that there are more people and power than the big one’s think. Maybe @elonmusk starts to think and reflect a bit more.”
What has Anonymous done in the past?
Anonymous is one world’s most notorious hacktivist collective. The organisation is decentralized, hence very difficult to trace down. They are responsible for conducting cyberattacks against several world governments, government institutions and agencies, and etc.
One of their most infamous hacking stints was against the Church of Scientology and PayPal. Anonymous members called Anons can be distinguished in public as they often wear the Guy Fawkes masks famous from the graphic novel and movie V for Vendetta.
