It’s another day. Another NFT Twitter drama. The Milady NFT founder is being criticized for his hate speech online. Many users on Twitter claim that the founder posted homophobic, antitrans and white nationalist tweets in the past. What is the Milady NFT Project and what accusations can you make against its founder?
What is the Milady NFT Project?
Milady Maker is a popular NFT collection featuring 10,000 generative PFP NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. These anime-inspired avatars were created by Remilia, an anonymous online collective. Initial plans were to allow holders to access a highly customized Minecraft server.
The Milady NFT project soon expanded its ecosystem to involve NFT banners, mixtapes, VRtube, a bootleg merch store and more. The collection became popular early this year, with some selling for as high as 15 ETH or about $45,000 at the time. Its floor is currently 0. 375 ETH on OpenSea.
Apparently, Charlotte Fang (who also goes by “Charlie” or “Charlemagne”), is the CEO of Remilia. According to Fang, the collection takes inspiration from “00’s Tokyo street fashion”. The collection includes NFTs in various rarities.
Some users have criticised the use of “SS’ instead of “S” due to its Nazi connotations, reported CoinDesk. However, Fang refuted such claims.
What is the Milady NFT Project Drama About?
Apart from the use of “SS”, the collection found itself in muddy waters after other allegations emerged. Many collectors discovered that the collection had a spin-off line featuring avatars in t-shirts bearing the words “Treblinka”, which is a Nazi concentration camp. This was also denied by the project, which claimed that they generated the phrases randomly using text from multiple sources.
Alarmingly, things don’t just end there. Remilia has been linked to Kaliacc, a white supremacist group that is now defunct. Kaliacc stands for Kali Yuga Accelerationism, which refers the Vedic Yuga Cycle.
“…the milady maker/remilia team is a neo-nazi grooming cult that has been exploiting and coaxing underage girls into self harm + worse for years under the name kaliacc,” Tweeted dexter.
Besides, some have also alleged that Fang is behind the online alias “Maya”, who is one of the leading figures of Kaliacc. Miya’s tweets and blog posts in the early days are highly racist and homophobic. Miya is also accused of “grooming young girls.” Allegedly, Miya was also part of a suicide cult which was responsible for a 17-year old taking their own life.
How Has the Milady NFT Project Founder Responded?
Initially, Fang denied any connections to Miya. Fang, however, made a “full disclosure” on Saturday.
“I was Miya. It’s a toxic baggage that is hurting Milady community and 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.”
They further said that they will be “taking a break” for a while. Fang’s tweet was met with mixed reactions. Some users called them “lies”.
Admittedly, there are some serious allegations against the Milady NFT Project Founder. Could this mean the end for Milady Makers Only time will tell.
