Epic troll James Gubb shows Guptas the middle-finger (JSE shoots the messenger)

In a series of trades of the Oakbay stock, he has produced a graph that literally gives the Gupta family the middle finger. The Financial Services Board (FSB) hasn’t appreciated Gubb’s combination of art and mathematical genius. Nor has it joined the dots. Instead, it has levied a hefty R100k fine on James Gubb. Others, meanwhile, who have genuinely benefited from insider trading and foreign currency plays go unpunished.

James Gubb is a mathematical genius and South Africa’s most epic troll.

Gubb executed a series of trades that of Oakbay shares – when visually represented – gives the Gupta family (and all their friends) the middle-finger… literally!

See image below...

Many South Africans are clamouring to give that man a Bells.

The JSE and the Financial Services Board, however, are not amused.

They’ve fined him a whopping R100 000 for his clever protest art.

They [JSE, FSB] looked like stunned mullets! They nodded their heads and laughed.

I have to pay the fine… life’s for enjoying.
