Anon to Elon

Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement widely known for its various cyberattacks against several governments, government institutions, and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology.


Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta.

The most popular Twitter Anonymous account, YourAnonNews, with some 6.7 million followers, has already denied being behind the video. When asked if they could confirm the video was published by them, the tweeted response was “Again, all the best – but no.”

The Anonymous @BscAnon account, that says it opposes “the malevolence that is rife in the space of cryptocurrency” also denies any involvement. It tweeted “That Is Not Our Video To Elon Musk for the record”
