GameStop Follow Up: Why Can’t Wall Street Take a Loss?

As stated in his recent court hearing, he is not a cat. He is a hero; a man who saw something he wanted and went after it. He is Keith Gill and he is being attacked by a bunch of coddled Wall Street infants that never grew up and learned how to take a loss.

On February 18, 2021 a video of Keith Gill (aka Roaring Kitty, aka DeepFuckingValue) on trial was released. For those who don’t know, yes, the guy from Reddit that got rich as fuck off GameStop’s stock is being sued by a prick (Christian Iovin, on behalf of all his other suit buddies that lost money) because he beat them at their own game.

Ok, they didn’t actually admit that Gill beat them at their own game , but they are suing Gill, MML Investors Services, LLC, and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company. I know what you’re thinking: what the fuck does Gill have to do with these corporations? Well it’s all in this long ass court document. Luckily, I read it so you didn’t have to.

Keith Gill “was licensed by MML as a registered representative (i.e., a securities broker), and he was employed by MassMutual as a ‘Financial Wellness Director,’” according to the court document. To Christian Iovin (the main guy going after Gill) the real crime was that Gill was using “fake personas” like Roaring Kitty and DeepFuckingValue while acting like “an amateur, everyday fellow” to boost the GameStop stock.

What a weak fucking claim for a suit who lost some money in the same game he made money in.

The lawsuit portrays Gill to be an evil genius that has brainwashed all the participants of r/WallStreetBets. In reality, he was one of many people chatting about the stock market. He may have had the high stake in the GameStop stock, but if he didn’t have a legitimate reason (which he does) behind his investment, why would others follow in his footsteps?
