The BAYC collection has been subject to multiple heinous accusations, including racism, sarnism, occultism and even pedophilia, according to Anonymous, and will be investigated. The hacktivist group added that it publishes its findings regularly.
The hacktivist group says the video is a friendly message to the Bored Ape community.
Ryder Ripps and Bored Apes
The accusation that Yuga Labs and Bored Apes Yacht Club Collection have Nazi symbolism started with Ryder Ripps.
The collection’s founder has released multiple statements denying any association with Nazism and other alleged concepts, but Lips is sticking to his claims and Yuga Labs is suing for false accusations.
On the other hand, some within the community Asked Some believe the video belongs to Lips and his team, whether or not this is a true Anonymous group.
From what I’ve seen, they don’t record camera angles from different views of the speaker. He also sounds like a rider and a team to me. I think it’s fake.

Looking at nxg4n’s tweets, it turns out that they are only tweeting about conspiracy theories involving Yuga Labs. No one knows who is behind the account.
