- Ask The Doctor went a social media rant against Shiba Inu.

- Shytoshi Kusama fired back, exposing the firm’s previous negative reviews.
- The SHIB community is outraged and leading an ‘unfollow’ campaign against the firm.
Canadian healthcare firm, Ask The Doctor is continuously slamming Shiba Inu, calling it a scam and warning investors against a rug pull. It seems like the organization is fueling its personal agenda by disgracefully attacking the meme coin and its founder. The firm’s Twitter channel is continuously sharing news and videos from unverified sources to show ‘Why SHIB is a scam’.
Ask The Doctor first posted a tweet calling the SHIB Army ‘bots’. The firm kept posting tweets with screenshots from second-tier websites and freelancing sites to prove its point behind calling Shiba Inu a scam. Ask The Doctor then came after the founders, Shytoshi Kusama and Ryoshi, calling them scammers for hiding their real identities.
It even accused Shytoshi of being behind the Squid Game Coin scam. Ask The Doctor also claimed that the firm will file a lawsuit tomorrow against SHIB and Shytoshi Kusama in the UK. For the last 24 hours, the healthcare firm has been on a raging rant on Twitter against Shiba Inu. The channel posted 32 tweets against SHIB in the last 6 hours, all filled with threats, hatred, and accusations against the meme coin.
Shythoshi hits back with facts rather than rants
After hours of tweets and accusations, Shytoshi Kusama fires back at Ask The Doctor on his Twitter account. He shared Whale stats from the top 1000 Ethereum wallets saying ‘let the numbers speak’. Shythoshi also shared Reddit forums posts and reviews from months ago, which shows users warning others against a potential scam from Ask The Doctor.
He also accused the firm of purchasing a verified Twitter account to scam people, as their Twitter account does not have as much engagement as a conventional verified channel. To somewhat test this claim, Cryptopolitan journalists conducted an audit of the channel on SparkToro and TwitterAudit. The test shows that over 36% of Ask The Doctors followers are fake. Shytoshi also demanded an apology from the healthcare firm.
The Shiba Inu community is outraged
It didn’t take long for the SHIB community to hit back at Ask The Doctor. The community is outraged and continuing to promote an ‘unfollow’ campaign against the firm. Several community members are revealing past reviews from users who claimed that Ask The Doctor took money from patients accounts without providing any service. The Twitter channel is losing hundreds of followers every hour.
Why is Ask The Doctor going after SHIB?
It all started when Ask the Doctor tweeted they “will be giving away a Tesla for 1 year”. The steps to win it is to “Sell your SHIB and use the funds to purchase Floki. Any dollar amount.
The whole saga started when Ask The Doctor posted a tweet saying they will give away $tesla for 1 year. To receive this giveaway, users only had to sell their SHIB token and buy FLOKI (Floki Inu) and share the screenshots. This tweet outraged the entire crypto community, as users accused the firm of market manipulation. This led Ask The Doctor to go on a Twitter rant against Shiba Inu and its founders.
SHIB is currently up by over 10% in the last 24 hours and seems to be recovering well from yesterdays crash. Shiba Inu has received wider adoption in the final quarter of this year and has a lot of major projects scheduled to be launched on the ecosystem, including the upcoming Shiba Inu game. There’s also the SHIB Zone in Venezuela currently under development, which will see multiple outlets accepting the meme coin as payments. So, regardless of Ask The Doctors claims, it’s rather unlikely that SHIB will encounter a rug pull.
