Several Twitter users have called out the founder of the Milady NFT project for alarming comments in the past.
The NFT community was rocked to the core on Monday after a Twitter drama escalated between the Milady NFT project founder and several Twitter users. The Milady NFT projects founder came under fire after many Twitter users called her out for earlier hate speeches that surfaced online.
Screenshots of various white nationalist, homophobic, and anti-trans tweets posted in the past have been tweeted and retweeted, creating much noise on the social media platform these past couple of days. According to some Twitter users, the Milady NFT project founder tweeted those disturbing comments.
Getting to Know the Milady NFT Project
Milady Maker is a popular NFT collection featuring 10,000 anime-inspired, lo-fi profile picture (PFP) NFTs. Remilia, an anonymous online collective, launched this NFT collection last year. Charlotte Fang sits as the CEO of Remilia.
According to Fang, the Milady NFT collection was inspired by “00’s Tokyo street fashion.” Each NFT comes in different rarities, the highest of which is “SS.”
During this Twitter drama, some users were quick to note the use of “SS” instead of “S” due to its Nazi connotations. However, Fang vehemently refuted the claims.
When it was launched, the initial idea was to provide holders access to a “highly customized Minecraft server.” However, the project scaled exponentially, and soon, there were NFT banners, mixtapes, VRTube, a bootleg merchandise store, and more.
The NFT collection peaked this year, with some of the collectibles selling for Ξ 15, which at that time was about $45,000. It has since gone down to its current floor price of Ξ 0.375, or about $742.00, on OpenSea.
What Triggered the Milady NFT Project Drama?
Apart from the controversial use of “SS,” the NFT collection found itself in hot water after various allegations cropped up, dating back to the time after its launch. Many collectors discovered a spin-off collection featuring avatars wearing T-shirts printed with the word “Treblinka,” which is a huge Nazi concentration camp.
The project team quickly denied the accusation, claiming they merely used randomly generated phrases from multiple sources. However, the drama doesn’t end there.
Likewise, several Twitter users alleged that Remilia has connections to a now-defunct white supremacist collective, Kaliacc. To those who are not familiar, Kaliacc is a shortened form of “Kali Yuga Accelerationism” that refers to the Vedic Yuga Cycle.
Other Twitter users began alleging that Fang is the person behind “Miya,” one of Kaliacc’s leading figures, whose early tweets and blog posts were incredibly racist and homophobic. This Miya online persona has also been accused of “grooming” young girls and is purportedly a member of a suicide cult responsible for a 17-year-old’s suicide.
The Founder’s Response
Fang initially denied any “ties” she might have with Miya. However, on Saturday, she made a telling admission on Twitter.
“I was Miya. And its toxic baggage that’s hurting Milady community & poisoning the vibe,” Fang tweeted. “I apologize about trying to hide the past account—Miya has nothing to do with Milady Maker & should stay that way, so I’ll be stepping down from the team from here.”
Fang added, “Thought trying to distance myself would help but not gonna keep pussyfooting around it. Unequivocally, my real views hold no room for hate, and I detest abusers & groomers—trolling about it was juvenile, but in reality I’ve never harmed a fly.”
Fang ended her lengthy Twitter thread by saying she would be “taking a break.” Her tweets received several mixed reactions from the community, with some saying they wished she’d stay since she’s had a lot to do with Milady NFT’s success. However, some users called her out for “lying.”
Only time can tell whether these serious allegations against Fang would spell the end of Milady Makers.
