NFT Influencer Ashni is getting the complete anger of crypto Twitter for her insulting and racist remarks. Screenshots of her tweets reappeared where she constantly used the word N. Thus, as a result of this discussion, she is not part of the NFT Marketplace SuperRare anymore.
Ashni hosted a Twitter space named “A warning to All Web 3”. One user shared a photo of her past racist tweets, explaining: “When you do not even bother to cover your tracks, do not stand up and speak instead of POC (people of color). This image went viral because also NFT educator and influencer @mecdot shared it on her profile.
One day after the news broke, Ashni tweeted and apologized to her 28,500 followers. “I tweeted some insolent and humiliating comments in my past, and I am really shy,” she said. I apologize for the damage I did, and I quit my role in @SuperRare to think about my mistakes and learn from them.
Unluckily, her apology was not approved by some members of the community. @majatek called her out because she “expressed it in such a way that you separate the context of your actions so that it seems that you are less guilty.” For instance, Ashni seemed to resign when she was in fact, fired. SuperRare published a statement that the platform”has a “zero-tolerance policy for any oppose racist, offensive or bad speech.” In this way, they decided to separate their way from Ashni.
However, some users backed Ashni and said that this is not important. The tweets were from 2012. As one user puts it, “You just tweeted lyrics from a Drake and Tyga which all people around the world tweeted in 2011.”
