Lindell, an outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump who has repeated several falsehoods about the 2020 election, launched the three-day conference with a promise. If anyone who attended the event could disprove Lindell's false claim that President Joe Biden "stole" the election - a claim that's been repeatedly debunked, as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said the 2020 presidential election was the "most secure" in American history - he would pay them $5 million.

But at the symposium, Lindell revealed no coherent evidence, according to the Daily Beast.

Trump's "big lie" that Biden "stole" the presidency, which Lindell and many other Trump allies have promoted since the election without evidence, is tied to the insurrectionists who stormed the US Capitol on January 6.

The conference has sparked outrage and ridicule online for various incidents that occurred throughout the three days, such as one speaker appearing to take a phone call while live on stage.

Lindell also claimed that "antifa" attacked him on the last day of the event, despite footage shared by a Salon reporter showing only three people singing hymns in the parking lot, as Insider reported.

On Twitter, the user @7Veritas4 wrote a list of three sarcastic "key takeaways" from the symposium, including that "there is no election fraud," "there is no evidence," and, finally, "say no to crack." The tweet has amassed over 4,000 likes and nearly 1,000 retweets.

Another user, @vivcathey, created a cover for a fictional book written by Lindell called, "Ruin: How I Destroyed My Life for a Guy Who Doesn't Give Two S---- About Me." The caption of the tweet reads, "I hosted a cyber symposium and all I got was a lousy $1.3 billion lawsuit," referencing a federal judge's ruling on Wednesday that Dominion's $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Lindell could move forward.

People are also making TikToks poking fun at the event under the hashtag #cybersymposium, which has garnered almost 5 million views.

The TikTok creator @oldmanmurphy_76, who has over 160,000 followers and is known for political discussions and mental health videos, shared a clip that garnered almost 40,000 views.

In the video, he said, "Hey Mikey, how's that cyber symposium going?" and then laughed derisively at a screenshot of a recent Washington Times article reporting that Lindell claimed the symposium was delayed because he had been hacked.

"That's really unfortunate," the creator added at the end of the clip, chuckling.

Manda Rose, a TikTok creator who goes by the handle @mandarose00, shared a video of her wearing a tinfoil hat and pretending to be someone who was convinced by Lindell's baseless conspiracy theories.

Lindell did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
