The founders of the Bored Ape Yach Club (BAYC) responded to the recent controversy surrounding a documentary accusing them of promoting Nazi imagery.

The co-founder of Yuga Labs, Wylie Aronow, known as Gordon Goner, said that the company has become the target of a “crazy disinformation campaign” that was spreading “ridiculous conspiracy theories.”

Aronow and other founders of Yuga Labs have disputed these claims several times before, calling them “far-fetched.”

A video made by investigative YouTuber Phillip Rusnack accusing the BAYC of employing racist and Nazi imagery in their NFTs has gone viral last week, sparking an industry-wide debate about the goal of the collection.

In a letter from the founders, Aronow explained that everything about the BAYC was “meant to convey a spirit of irreverence and absurdity,” calling the situation “nonsense.”
