The media has been fascinated with GameStop’s miraculous rise driven by r/WallStreetBets, and the story has raised questions around regulatory, compliance, and ethical issues related to employee outside activities.

One of the most prominent voices in the Reddit Rally, Keith Gill aka Roaring Kitty, was a licensed securities broker registered with FINRA. Mr. Gill’s Roaring Kitty former employer, MassMutual, has told securities regulators in Massachusetts that it was unaware that Mr. Gill had spent more than a year posting about GameStop on YouTube, Reddit, and other online forums.
