What does Jon Stewart's tweet mean?

Jon's tweet supports Reddit users and also takes a dig at Wall Street insiders. The reason behind his tweet is the ongoing war between Redditors and Hedge funds. A subreddit with the name r/WallStreetBets went on to increase the American videogame company GameStop's share price. This resulted in the loss of billions from Hedge funds who were trying to short the GME stock. The sudden increase in stock price has created chaos in the Stock market and various politicians are now getting involved in the matter. 

RobinHood, an app that helps you bet also came under the controversy for market manipulation. The users barged social media and asked people to hold the stocks after the app did not allow them to sell their shares. With such a huge difference in the market, various celebrities are now joining the Redditors and are using their social media to spread awareness.
