Matt Damon, who shot a commercial for crypto.com, is the target of memes and mockery on social media amid the cryptocurrency rout.
They have big ones, those who have invested in cryptocurrencies. Hit by the recent “crypto-crash”, they saw their bitcoin lose 30% of its value in 7 days. And they are a little angry with Matt Damon for advising them to buy it. The actor indeed shot last January, a commercial for the crypto.com platform, to the glory of cryto-currencies.
Since the misfortune of the company, forced to lay off some of its employees, they have had a great time on social networks, making fun of the actor and his investment advice. Some refer to his films.
