This is a multi-layered F-U scheme and the little guys have it figured

out pretty darn nicely, and they're doing so legally which is what makes it at the very least incredibly interesting to watch. Nobody can force holders of GME to sell; but when in-the-money call writers have their options expire, they are forced to buy shares. With few sellers, those hedge funds in such a negative position are basically f$%ked. Losses are going to continue to mount up as long as the Neets and their movement hold out. I expect them to hold out a long time - they have literally zero downside in doing so. They're out for blood and it's going to happen.

Where this gets really strange is when you look at the gold futures markets. COMEX gold futures move somewhere around 80-100x the value of actually-deliverable gold bullion. It doesn't matter though because as futures contracts roll up each month, COMEX traders roll their positions into the next-forward month contracts - they're not forced to make delivery. However, given such a low ratio of deliverable gold bullion to futures contract values, if these Neets get a hold of THAT market and require physical delivery, all bets are off. There could be an enormous financial bloodbath of the big commodities funds. That's not in the works yet but there is a lot of noise about that from the same disorganized group that pulled off the GME and AMC stunts.
