Through the official FTX account, Ray re-emphasized the fact that Sam Bankman-Fried had stepped down from his position as CEO last week, this goes for all his companies including FTX, FTX US, Alameda Research, as well as their subsidiaries.
He then further distances the company from the former CEO, stating “Mr. Bankman-Fried has no ongoing role at [FTX], FTX US, or Alameda Research Ltd. and does not speak on their behalf.“
(3/3) Mr. Bankman-Fried has no ongoing role at @FTX_Official, FTX US, or Alameda Research Ltd. and does not speak on their behalf.

SBF’s Recent Behavior
It seems that John Ray and FTX’s decision to make this announcement was made following a series of erratic tweets that Sam Bankman-Fried tweeted out for the past week.
Since November 14th, SBF has made an incredibly lengthy Twitter thread detailing his side of the story on FTX’s fall as well as revealing the current finances and assets of FTX and Alameda Research.
Aside from that, Sam Bankman-Fried had also gotten into a recent controversy following leaked DMs made between him and a Vox Reporter where SBF revealed his focus on ethics was “mostly a front.”
