When Russell Okung is right, you know something really wrong happened. The Panthers’ soon to be free agent but for now starting left tackle is one of many people who are expressing their outrage on social media with the financial news that’s taking the world by storm.

The short version is that hedge funds and trading apps are moving the goal posts after a bunch of Redditors pumped up the value of seemingly worthless stocks like GameStop and AMC, upsetting Wall Street titans that held short positions against them. There are plenty of villains to go around, but the Robinhood App is taking the most heat over their decision to suspend buying of those stocks, only allowing investors to sell.

Here’s a few tweets Okung shared this morning with his thoughts on Robinhood and the situation in general.
