  • The owner of a Lamborghini yacht threatened a private dock employee, per CBS8.

  • The employee said Ajay Thakore mooned and threw cash at him after being told he couldn’t use the dock.

  • Thakore, the CEO of Doctor Multimedia, issued an apology through his public relations team.

The owner of a $3.4 million Lamborghini yacht threatened a private dock employee after being told he couldn’t be there, the San Diego-based broadcaster CBS8 reported on March 11.

Joseph Holt, a 21-year-old employee at Marriot Marina in San Diego, told CBS8 that he spotted the yacht sailing into the private dock. The owner, whom CBS8 identified as Ajay Thakore, tried to pick another person up at the dock, Holt said.

“I told him respectfully that he couldn’t be there, and I honestly was hoping to have a conversation with him about his cool boat,” Holt told CBS8.

In a YouTube video posted by @SM-wc9eq on March 10, a dark blue Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is seen sailing out of a dock. A man in a gray T-shirt, a pair of jeans, and a cap was shown standing on the yacht. The man appeared to be Thakore, per CBS8.

Thakore was shown shouting at Holt. “I will kill you, you know I will kill you!” he can be heard saying multiple times in the video

Thakore was later shown pounding his fist on his palm and pointing his thumb down before telling Holt: “To your face!” Holt was shown responding by pointing his middle finger at Thakore.

“I really was trying to restrain myself from getting fired from my job or stepping out of line. The only thing I did was give him the bird,” Holt told CBS8.

Holt said Thakore then took $100 bills from his wallet and threw them at him. He added that Thakore mooned him. This exchange was not shown in the video.

“He was saying I’m nobody, I’m nothing, I work a silly job. He said that he knows people, he has connections, he can change my life and ruin it,” Holt said. Holt did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.

The San Diego Harbor Police arrived at the marina 10 minutes after Thakore’s yacht exited the dock, per CBS8. The Harbor Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BI.

According to Thakore’s LinkedIn page, he’s the CEO of Doctor Multimedia. The company’s website shows that it’s a healthcare marketing firm based in San Diego. Thakore appears to go by the name Ace Rogers on Instagram and TikTok, where he’s noted as being a professional gambler.

Thakore, through his public relations team, told CBS8 in a statement that his altercation with Holt was “regrettable.”

“What started as a minor misunderstanding escalated into an argument, and I apologize for my actions and to those who witnessed the unfortunate exchange,” the statement said. Thakore did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BI.

Thakore isn’t the only CEO who’s been called out for threatening another person. In November 2021, an Activision spokesperson told BI that its ex-CEO Bobby Kotick had previously apologized for telling his assistant he would have her killed. The spokesperson added that Kotick’s threat was “obviously hyperbolic and inappropriate” and that “he deeply regrets the exaggeration and tone.”

In June 2020, Lisa Alexander, the CEO of LaFace Skincare, a cosmetics company, apologized in a statement to the media after she had threatened to call the police on her neighbor for writing “Black Lives Matter” on his property. Alexander said in the apology that she was “disrespectful” and “should have minded my own business.”
