Dominic Patten, reporting for Deadline:
“I’m never wrong about this stuff, never,” said a dismissive and
scoffing Larry David earlier this year in that now infamous Super
Bowl ad for investing in cryptocurrency exchange FTX. While
the Seinfeld co-creator rejected the wheel, coffee, the U.S.
Constitution, electricity, putting a man on the moon and more
innovations in the much praised commercial, looks like David might
have been right about the now collapsed FTX, for all the good it’s
going to do him.
Along with the likes of Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Stephen Curry
and the Golden State Warriors, Shaquille O’Neal, and Naomi Osaka,
David is now a defendant in a class action suit against the now
hollowed out FTX and its ex-CEO Sam Bankman-Fried.
I don’t know whether they deserve to be sued, but they ought to be ashamed of themselves for promoting a Ponzi scheme.
