On November 30, Andrew Ross Sorkin, a reporter for the New York Times, spoke with SBF, who was the former CEO of FTX, at the NYT’s annual DealBook summit. This was SBF’s first interview with the public after his company fell apart.
Recent Released: What is Solana? And Is It Worthy To Investing in Solana (SOL)?
SBF said, “I never tried to scam anyone, and what happened this month shocked me.” He also said that he didn’t mix funds from Alameda and FTX on purpose.
SBF, the former CEO and founder of the now-infamous cryptocurrency exchange FTX, said on stage, “I’ve had a bad month.”
Crypto When SBF talked about the FTX mess, Twitter users got angry and accused him of playing down his responsibilities and role in the mess.
#SBF He or she is said to be one of the smartest people in the world.
I didn’t understand the risk. @tastytrade

I didn’t think this SBF situation could possibly look worse, but this interview is proving me wrong… #FTX #SBF #NewYorkTimes #Interview

All I can see in this SBF NYT interview is how stunningly delusional he is. About everything.
This is also why you need a lawyer, and you listen to them!
Everyone wishes they could just say "sorry, I was young & dumb, hehe". But that's not how it works.

Even before the interview, Bankman-Fried was criticised for being asked to speak at the conference.
SBF should be sitting in a jail right now, but instead he is giving an interview on the New York Times Dealbook summit.
WTF is happening?https://t.co/i3pQOVZy3b

Crypto Andrew Ross Sorkin, a journalist who has won awards, is a CNBC anchor, and the author of “Too Big to Fail.” Sorkin interviewed him, and Twitter wasn’t kind to him.
Sorkin asked Bankman-Fried if his lawyers thought it was a good idea for him to speak at the conference. “No,” Bankman-Fried said. “They are not at all,” he said, adding that he had to say something.
Ross Sorkin: "What are your lawyers telling you right now? Are they suggesting this is a good idea for you to be speaking?"
SBF: "No. They are very much not." pic.twitter.com/cl5KDTVRpf

As soon as the Wednesday interview started, with Bankman-Fried and Sorkin talking through a video link to a live and virtual audience of thousands, people started to respond on Twitter.
Crypto Twitter didn’t like what SBF had said.
One user used SBF’s presence as a way to criticise the whole conference, saying it was full of bad people like Jeffrey Epstein, Osama Bin Laden, and Voldemort.
Heck of a line-up!
Congrats on this @nytimes @dealbook, seriously. pic.twitter.com/3wkz1UOWQ4

Others couldn’t hold back from saying what they thought on the Bird app.
I watched that SBF @andrewrsorkin interview, and I have to say that I still can't believe what I just witnessed. I'm actually speechless at the level of reality distortion field at play here. Also… audience applauding at the end? WTF!

That was a very informative interview with @SBF_FTX: we finally know where all those billions in client funds that were collateralized with worthless FTT tokens and then "repurposed" elsewhere went.

SBF is apparently the most liked criminal ever.
What a joke.
Drives me crazy seeing his little smirk during his interviews.
Guy should be in prison. Ruined a lot of people's lives, willingly and without remorse.

FTX exploded two weeks ago.
SBF is having Thanksgiving dinner in a penthouse with his family.
The NYT will interview him next week.
Amazon is already planning an eight-part mini series about it with two Marvel directors.
… "clown world" doesn't even begin to describe it.

It is pin-drop silent and tense in the room but SBF clearly cannot perceive that across the Zoom link, so he's just sort of chatting with @andrewrsorkin like it's any other Zoom call

The SBF interview was so whacky
It just feels like lie after lie after lie
