Over the weekend, the activist hacker group Anonymous uploaded onto YouTube a warning video for Elon Musk, calling the billionaire "nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude desperate for attention".
During the approximately three-minute-long video, the group says Musk wields too much power over the cryptocurrency markets and described the devastation caused to many average working people and how tired they are with his attitude.
Watchers say a cryptic tweet that Musk posted last Thursday that sent the Bitcoin price plunging 7 percent over the next day may have been the last straw for the group.
Referring to his father having owned an emerald mine in Zambia, Anonymous said Musk was born into stolen wealth and has no clue what struggle is like for most people around the world.
In the message, Anonymous does acknowledge that people who invest in cryptocurrency take the risk upon themselves and should know to be prepared for volatility.
But the video content continued to focus on what it called Musk's clear disregard for normal people, adding that his public temper tantrums have liquidated their dreams, also slamming Musk for mocking them with memes from his multiple million dollar mansions.
Anonymous, that has previously targeted government and religious corruption, extremists and abuse of public power is now threatening to expose the public image it says Musk has carefully crafted for himself over the years.
