Risk of Broker Bankruptcy?

Robinhood had to take a billion dollar emergency loan to meet it’s requirements. We have seen Robinhood is a very shakily run brokerage with lots of downtime and was fined last month for illegal activity in how it handled client accounts. Interactive Brokers CEO pointed out that if one brokerage goes bankrupt, the other brokerages are obligated to pay off its debts. In the case of a massive GME short squeeze that crushes Robinhood, what are the odds other brokers go bankrupt too?
