Bored Ape Yacht Club Co-Founder Had Earlier Debunked Rumors that the BAYC Project Had ‘Racist’ Undertones.

Yuga Labs announcing a lawsuit against parties slandering the BAYC project comes less than a day after Bored Ape Yacht Club’s co-founder, Gordon Goner, took to Twitter and Medium to debunk rumors and conspiracies that the project had ‘racist’ undertones.

According to Mr. Goner, the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT project is the target of a crazy disinformation campaign accusing them of being ‘super-secret Nazis’.

However, he pointed out that this is not the case as the Bored Ape Yacht Club project was created by a bunch of friends with Jewish, Turkish, Pakistani, and Cuban roots. He added:

We’ve not responded in further detail to these allegations because frankly they are insanely far-fetched. That said, we woke up this morning to a podcaster we respect talking about this conspiracy theory and that was pretty surreal.

Apes are Synonymous With Crypto.

Gordon Goner also shared insights into the genesis of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT project via a Medium blog post where he pointed out that ‘Apes’ were synonymous with the crypto-community. He explained:
