A video from the Anonymous Group has surfaced on Twitter with the hacker group promising to investigate claims of the Bored Apes NFT collection ties with Nazi symbolism.

BAYC founders have publicly denied the allegations.

Anonymous said BAYC collections have been subject to multiple heinous accusations — involving racism, simianism, occultism, and even pedophilia — which it intends to investigate. The hacktivist group added that it will release its findings periodically.

The hacktivist group said the video is a friendly message to the Bored Ape Community.

Ryder Ripps and Bored Apes

Accusations about Yuga Labs and Bored Apes Yacht Club Collection having Nazi symbolism started with Ryder Ripps.

While the collection’s founders have released multiple statements to deny the link to Nazisms and other accused concepts, Ripps has persisted with his claims and Yuga Labs is suing for false accusations.

Meanwhile, some within the community have questioned whether this is the real Anonymous group, while others think that the video is from Ripps and his team.

Before the video was released on Twitter, an Anonymous verified Facebook page posted on August 9, calling out @nxg4n to “keep up the good work.” The now-deleted post also mentioned Ryder Ripps and Pauly Cohen.

A look at nxg4n tweets showed that it exclusively tweets about conspiracy theories involving Yuga Labs. No one knows who is behind the account
