Lenny Dykstra came out swinging Saturday against the “vultures” that forced billionaire Mets owner Steve Cohen to bench his Twitter account amid the GameStop tumult.
“He should have never gotten on Twitter in the first place, it was just a matter of time until the vultures started circling,” the former Mets center fielder known as “Nails” told The Post.
The billionaire mets owner said “personal threats” not related to the team forced him to deactivate his account for now. Cohen’s hedge fund, Point 72, offered a $750 million lifeline to Melvin Capital, which lost billi ons on bets against stocks like GameStop in a so-called short squeeze orchestrated by amateur investors on Reddit.
“It’s only a paper loss — a bunch of Reddit p—-es that think they are smarter than everyone will eventually get their F—ing D–k handed to them!” Dykstra said. “The man with the gold always makes the rules.”
Dykstra continued: “NOTHING TO GAIN EVERYTHING TO LOSE.”
The ex-MLBer nailed Redditors too: “Bunch of punks it’s not our fault they were picked last on their little league team.”
The minor league investors have said they’re not backing down — and even took out billboards in Times Square and across the country urging the faithful to continue hold the stock to push it even higher.
