(Bloomberg) -- Robinhood struck back at Warren Buffett on Monday after the legendary investor said over the weekend that the online brokerage played a significant part in the “casino aspect” aspect of the market.

“At Robinhood, we’re not going to sit back while they disparage everyday people for taking control of their financial lives,” she added.
