    I posted proof today that they dumped on their own project and said the video was a publicity stunt you guys are spinning this into whatever you want. Again.

    This is a thread that anyone can post in. You're replying to me, although selectively because I surmise you can't muster a sufficient answer to the other posts. If you didn't want to get hounded then maybe don't defend Nazis next time.

    Oh wow, we can equally post proof where people are posting about BAYC and Apefest or dismissing and laughing this off. Since it was already discussed back in January. The video was posted and released this week for a reason. OMG, you guys can't understand that and continue to blow this out of proportion. Surprise, surprise.

    The media doesn't seem to care. The athletes, influencers, and celebs don't seem to be selling. Are they Nazis?

    Yes, if you're familiar with Bobby Hundreds (you're not), you'd know that's exactly something he'd do.

    The video was posted right before NFT NYC started and right before the most hyped and anticipated event of NFT NYC, Apefest.

    They hired some marketing company to "graffiti" sidewalks and spray-painted over a well-known graffiti artist which has gotten more attention than this, guys. Many other ways to make fun of this project.

    There seems to be a lot of “unintentional” racism and alt-right imagery. It’s ok to say these things are bad, even if they’re pointed out by people you don’t like

    2-3 days ago I posted a link where an expert dismissed the logo as a connection. No matter what I say someone here will spin this, and this will go on and on. So instead I reply however I feel like in the moment. And when I do that on my phone it seems to really upset some, you in particular.

    You discovered him when the other poster posted the "protest" tweet. You're not in The Hundreds demographic.

    Nobody is upset. You're the one in spin mode defending the biggest NFT project being linked to Nazis bc NFT's are your entire identity and you take it personally. You don't own a BAYC. You shouldn't care about this but here we are.

    I admitted this to wes tegg in a response. It does seem like there are a lot of connections.

    It does also seem weird to suggest these two random guys did this on purpose AND knew this project would become what it did.

    And then I said Ryder Ripps is historically known as a troll. That video is reminiscent of a lot of conspiracy videos. My serious response.

    In fairness to the creators, being accidentally nazi adjacent while making ape-people cartoons with gold teeth, chains, and earrings would be downright hilarious.

    100% correct.

    I'm not labeling these dudes as nazis, racists, or anything other than some project creators because of something Ryder Ripps helped post. We're back on track now. Nice edit.

    You're 100% choosing to believe everything in a video. Based on knowing who supplied that "evidence" or all of the connect-the-dots I'm saying I'll wait until there's more information.

    I posted today proof where Ryder dumped his own project. And here we are, 4 of you trying to argue different things. He 100% shilled his own project in that video. His team just dumped a bunch of their NFTs to new community members. How fucking fitting. Keep spinning it!

    You cannot dismiss that people are legitimately offended by the content just because you have a hard on for a guy talking about it.

    Why are you worried about thay6? Nobody else itt is. Spend your time showing how things in that video aren't true. Nobody gives a fuck why they announced it when they did or if they are grifting. Show what the video said is untrue or sit down. Thanks.

    They took the same information they posted about on the website back in January. This is already known by everyone outside of here.

    Apefest seems to be doing very well besides people complaining about lines.

    If I was a Crypto Bro/ NFT enthusiast, I wouldn't being mental gymnastics to defend these guys. I'd wager that the cultish devotion that is so rampant in the community is what attracted those guys to use them as the vessel for their Nazi trolling.

    Choosing to collaborate with Philion who frequently makes fun of Crypto Bros and NFT's probably wasn't the best marketing decision to sell the alternative apes if that was the purpose of the entire project.
