Julian Robertson, who runs Tiger Management and once counted Hwang as a protg, was the first to come to his defense.</p><p>Robertson said <a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/bill-hwang-archegos-tiger-cub-julian-robertson-great-fan-invest-2021-3-1030257833">he remains a "great fan"</a> of Hwang even after the recent episode and argued the liquidations "probably could have happened to anyone" in an interview with Bloomberg on Monday.</p><p>Fundstrat's Lee followed on Tuesday.</p><p>Lee noted in his Twitter thread that Hwang's Archegos Capital "generated investment returns dwarfing other funds, using PUBLIC EQUITIES, no outside money, no venture/angel investments."</p><p>The head of reasearch also said investors should be "in awe" of the Archegos chief's "astonishing success." Lee noted Hwang was able to turn his $100 million fund into an over $15 billion empire via consistent impressive returns.&nbsp;</p><p>Lee added that "the Schadenfreude over this event speaks to the envy and jealously of peers," referring to the German term for delight at others' misfortune.</p><p>Lee concluded his Twitter thread by saying investors "should be cheering success and not jeering at failure."</p><p><a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/fundstrat-tom-lee-defends-bill-hwang-top-10-investor-archegos-2021-3-1030260201#comments">Join the conversation about this story &#187;</a></p> <p>NOW WATCH: <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/melissa-maker-clean-your-home-quickly-cleaning-expert-2017-4">A cleaning expert reveals her 3-step method for cleaning your entire home quickly</a></p>
