Gasparino has launched another perceived attack on the XRP community.
FOX Business senior correspondent Charles Gasparino has asserted that the XRP community hates everything associated with Ethereum.
The journalist who made this known in a tweet yesterday described this perceived hatred as absurd, as everyone he knows who is associated with Ethereum wants a Ripple win in the US Securities and Exchange Commission case.
Absurdity of the #XRPCommunity hatred for all things and people associated w @ethereum can be found in the fact that every person I know associated w #ETH wants @Ripple to prevail over the @SECGov because what it will mean for crypto regulation and probably the #ETH coin

The XRP Community Responds
Unsurprisingly, Gasparino’s comments have attracted a flurry of responses from the XRP community.
Crypto Eri, a popular XRP influencer, poked holes at Gasparino’s assumption that the entire XRP community hated everything related to Ethereum, noting that some XRP community members also hold ETH. Instead, the influencer suggested that community members are upset with the actions of some Ethereum founders and SEC officials. Furthermore, she alleged that it increasingly looks like Gasparino is being influenced.
Hi Charles. As a journalist I imagine you understand any community is of very diverse opinions. In addition, I think you’re confusing the digital asset ETH itself with actions by “some” of its founders as well as the despicable SEC behavior. I’d place a bet on someone has your 👂

Others, like Mr Huber, questioned the journalist’s research ability, sharing excerpts and clips from multiple occasions where Ethereum founders defended the SEC case against Ripple.

Recall that in August, Vitalik Buterin asserted that no Ethereum holder should come to the defense of XRP, saying it had lost its “right to protection.” And last month, the Ethereum founder claimed that XRP was “completely centralized.”
At the same time, others, in response to Gasparino, threw jabs at the Ethereum network’s shortcomings.

It bears mentioning that this is the second time in recent months that the journalist has launched a perceived attack on XRP in defense of Ethereum. Less than 2 weeks ago, the FOX Business correspondent refuted claims of former SEC director Bill Hinman having a conflict of interest leading up to his declaration that Ethereum is not a security in his controversial 2018 speech. The journalist asserted that the XRP community is acting like conspiracy theorists and children by continuing to push this narrative.
