Company tweets complaints about the company’s former CEO, asks him to resign, and threatens to sue him.
Epik’s Twitter account has been inactive since Rob Monster left the company in September 2022. It’s back and with a message for the company’s founder.
In a series of tweets over the past five days, the company has called on Monster to resign his position on the board and threatened legal action against him.
The company squarely blames Monster for the company’s debt problems and inability to pay creditors:
#BeEpik 2.0 Team & CEO shut down Masterbucks Dec ’22 due to serious financial & security risks from Rob Monster’s actions. Now, Epik struggles to manage debt from his company-wide oversights, including Masterbucks.
It asked him to resign:
Third parties have asked Mr. Monster to step down from the board because his decisions lack “rational business purpose” and create deadlocks.
And said it might sue him:
Due to Mr. Monsters’ continued unwillingness to solve problems created by his clear mismanagement, Epik Holdings Inc. has no choice but to consider filing suit against him shortly.
Here’s the series of tweets (with a couple of duplicates removed) in chronological order:
Wow, what an interesting turn in this Epik drama! The company is actually correct in its claim that Rob most likely started the whole mess during his time as the company’s leader.
Brad Mugford says
Epik only became talkative after the RICO lawsuit was filed. Their account was dormant from 9/22/2022 until that happened. Now it is a scramble to throw each other under the bus.
At first Epik pretended Rob had nothing to do with them now. That is silly because he is still the Chairman, governor, and majority shareholder.
Then Epik blamed all their current problems on Rob.
The issues might have started under Rob Monster, but continued under Brian Royce.
He has been the CEO for 7+ months now.
This transaction, and many others, happened after Rob Monster was replaced as CEO.
Now Epik is barely even a registrar.
There have been many reports about the inability of Epik to carry out the basic functions of a registrar. Registrations and renewals are being paid for, but not being processed.
I assume they don’t have legal counsel, because no competent lawyer would allow this clown show on Twitter.
What a mess…
John Berryhill says
Aside from not having any money with which to finance such a lawsuit, the person running Epik’s Twitter account does not seem to understand that the company is unlikely to be authorized by the controlling member of its board to sue that member of the board.
They should get that crazy guy Davis back to run their communications. His conspiracy theories were always a hoot.
Andrew Allemann says
I imagine it would be one of the investors who sues.
I told Robm to get rid of his “praying buddy” because when he was appointed most of the troubles started . Epik staff used to contact me if they had a problem with RobD because he was intimidating them
Scott Ross says
To those who somehow missed the overlapping CAVEAT EMPTOR signs dangling for years from Rob Monster’s neck, too bad. When you knowingly sleep with dirty dogs, you don’t get to whine “Woe is me” when you wake-up covered with fleas.
Jurgen Urchane says
ANY business person who openly wears their religion on their sleeve should be avoided like the plague. They will screw you, guaranteed, using their religious piety as a cover. Rob Monster is a prime example of this business phenomenon.
Scott Ross says
I think the CEO has been more controversial for Epik Holding INC than the founding itself.
Everything has an end and if this goes ahead it would be good for the rest of the team of employees and managers at Epik and for Domain investor and customer account who still have domain names.
Just keeps getting weirder lol.
Mark Thorpe says
What goes around comes around.
Best Gong Show ever! Lol
Miss nickie says
Rob monster the Christian is going to hell lmao
Robert McLean says
Monster, the crook and the Epik saga is a microcosm of the domain name business as a whole. Tip of the iceberg. A dirty game populated with many, many “dirty dogs,” the big dog, and getting bigger, Godaddy!
