Melvin Capital Forced To Step Down

It is being reported that Chief Investment Officer Gabriel Plotkin has been forced to step down after he demanded to double down the GameStop short after the initial GameStop mania in January. While he testified on Capitol Hill that Melvin had closed their short position, we now know that Melvin never closed its position and was actually steadily adding to it.

Melvin is likely gonna be forced to liquidate all holdings in attempt to try to take some of the burden off, but this likely means the permanent closing of Melvin Capital. Gabe was later seen on TikTok sobbing about how he was going to have to prostitute himself for cheeseburgers to make ends meet.
