“Europe why didn’t yall move the price up when us Americans were sleeping,” the YouTube commentor asked.

Over on the r/Superstonk community, members are already celebrating Gill’s status as an “Ethical Billionaire.”

At the start of the week, an unnamed source told The Wall Street Journal that ETrade’s financial crimes unit had started looking at Gill’s trading account.
