Zack Morris Defends $ZACK Token’s Plummet Amid Rug Pull Accusations: “I Don’t Really Give A Sh*t”

Zack may be back but his coin might not be. The cryptocurrency token $ZACK, associated with social media influencer Zack Morris, plummeted by 66.53% on the Poloniex exchange earlier this week.

The token, which had experienced a rapid rise in value over the past few days, recently traded as low as 0.01999 USDT, leaving investors reeling and raising serious questions about the token’s future. Days before the equity had traded as high 0.1185 USDT.

Morris, known for his charismatic online presence and substantial following of 500,000 users, has been at the center of controversy after evading conviction on Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charges related to a pump-and-dump scheme. Now, he faces fresh allegations of orchestrating a rug pull with his $ZACK token.

The sharp decline in $ZACK’s value has sparked attention among retail investors. One X user, @SteveUrkelDude, succinctly captured the sentiment with a post saying, “WTF just happened to $ZACK?”

Grizzle Media’s Thomas George also commented on the situation, saying, “Zack Morris evades conviction on SEC pump and dump charges, he then proceeds to rug his 500k followers on his $ZACK token 😂…. can’t make this shit up.”

“It’s not a rug pull”

In response to the accusations, Morris posted an audio message on social media, attempting to downplay the concerns. “Guys ignore the hate. I don’t really give a shit guys. We went from zero to like fuckin 12 cents in a few days. You know, we pulled back… It is not a rug pull. You know, we’re bouncing back, everything else pulled back… We have an amazing community. We’re just getting stronger holders. So guys, we’re just getting started.”

He further posted, “$ZACK We’re in this for the long run. The run up and dip were a blessing for many. We are far from over. Crypto meme is like this and that’s why degens love it. Put enough in not to sweat about. I’m going to share my pot when we pass our goal. Let’s make money and have fun one coin at a time.”
