By CCN: The CEO of crypto project TRON has come under fire for a Twitter Tesla giveaway that doesn’t seem to involve giving much away at all.

After announcing a $2o million “global appreciation campaign,” including a Tesla giveaway, Justin Sun has backed out and refused to give the winner his car.

TRON’s Tesla Giveaway Gone Wrong

Sun announced the winner publicly on Twitter before deleting the tweet and revoking the prize.

The (un)lucky winner goes by @zugaroth and has not been silent on the issue. He called Sun out as a scammer and posted a Twitter poll asking followers if they agreed. The results will be out in 11 hours with over 10,000 votes so far.

We reached out, and @zugaroth spoke exclusively with CCN.

“I feel outraged because apparently, he will not keep his word. Immediately the public that I was the winner sent my contact data to the inbox of Justin Sun but I never had an answer.”
