28th May 2024 – (New York) A member of the X crypto community known as Roxo has come forward with a potential revelation regarding the identity of the “hacker” responsible for breaching the X accounts of several celebrities, including Caitlyn Jenner, Soulja Boy, Rich The Kid, and adult-content models Kazumi and Ivana Knöll. Roxo, an 18-year-old individual based in Miami with a following of 17,100, shared his findings in response to a series of suspicious tweets that emerged over the weekend of 25th – 26th May.

According to Roxo’s tweet, Caitlyn Jenner’s account was not hacked, but rather her team fell victim to social engineering tactics employed by an individual named Sahil. Roxo provided evidence in the form of a Telegram post by Sahil Arora, accompanied by pictures of him posing with Rich The Kid. Additionally, Roxo highlighted that the wallets associated with the coins launched on pump.fun for Soulja Boy, Rich The Kid, Kazumi, and Knöll were all linked to Arora’s wallet address.

Roxo further claimed that the JENNER coin launch was legitimate, which allegedly confused Jenner’s team. They reproduced a tweet from Jenner’s X account that urged followers to send memecoins to the address associated with Arora. However, the post has since been deleted.

Caitlyn Jenner has reiterated her support for JENNER coin and clarified that her account was not hacked. She expressed regret over the confusion caused by an advertisement for a third-party token and emphasized her focus on the $Jenner token.

Sahil Arora responded to the allegations with reposts, stating that Jenner’s team only cared about money and had abandoned him, refusing to answer his calls or messages. Sophia Hutchins, Jenner’s manager, confirmed the authenticity of the JENNER coin and affirmed that the account had not been hacked.

Roxo continued in their post, accusing Sahil of successfully executing five influencer scams that week. Rich The Kid also posted a video on his X account, acknowledging that his page was hacked, and a coin was promoted by Sahil, who allegedly engaged in a pump and dump scheme, blocking Rich The Kid after accumulating the funds.

It is worth noting that another crypto investor, Gigantic-Cassocked-Rebirth (GCR), claimed their account was hacked in a deleted post, potentially indicating a fifth scam incident.

Sahil Arora hosted several Twitter Spaces sessions on 27th May, focusing on issues such as SOL Scan and betrayal. However, the conversations were not directly related to memecoins. Arora’s Twitter account (@sahilsaysol) was subsequently deleted a few minutes after the longest broadcast.
