The morbid “Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself” meme has emerged as a pop culture catchphrase and is popping up on TV, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, dating apps but also on beer cans, T-shirts and on ugly Christmas sweaters!
This week, Paul Gosar congressman from Arizona sent a series of 23 tweets that were ostensibly about impeachment, but which spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself” if you were to combine the first letter of each message. Joe Rogan and Tank Sinatra also started spreading “Epstein didn’t kill himself” memes on Instagram. In recent weeks the Epstein story has been bubbling up again. The conservative muckrakers at Project Veritas had leaked tape of ABC broadcast reporter Amy Robach claiming that higher-ups had killed the story. She is “100 percent” that Epstein was murdered.
Prince Andrew, found himself at the center of controversy surrounding his relationship with Epstein. In an televised interview with the BBC at Buckingham Palace Queen Elizabeth’s son was questioned about his relationship with Epstein and allegations made by a woman who said he had sex with her when she was 17. Prince Andrew’s last weekend interview became a PR nightmare and a national joke. However, the Duke disputes this, claiming that he was at home and had taken his daughter, Princess Beatrice, to a Pizza Express in woking for a party. Pizza Express was flooded with fake reviews after prince Andrew interview.
Andrew is patron of 189 charities and groups – many are refusing to back him. Five multi-million pound businesses, including Advertising Week Europe, Standard Chartered, and KPMG have cut ties with Prince Andrew’s related groups after car crash BBC interview MailOnline revealed today.
For those puzzled, Epstein, was a known pedophile and convicted sex offender who palled around with a series of high-rollers such as Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Kevin Spacey, Donald Trump, Woody Allen and Prince Andrew. Epstein lived in Manhattan’s largest private residence and had a private airplane dubbed “Lolita Express,” which he flew to a private island dubbed Pedophile Island. Federal officials identified 36 girls, some as young as 14 years old, whom Epstein had sexually abused.
Epstein began his professional life as a teacher but then switched to the finance sector in various roles, working at Bear Stearns before forming his own firm. Epstein installed cameras in numerous places on his properties to record sexual activity with underage girls by prominent people for criminal purposes, such as blackmail. Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s close companion, told a friend that Epstein’s private island in the Virgin Islands was completely wired for video and the friend believed that Epstein was videotaping everyone on the island as an insurance policy. Epstein partially confirmed that he had blackmail material when he told a New York Times reporter in 2018, off the record, that he had dirt on powerful people, including information about their sexual proclivities and recreational drug use.
Epstein was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City on August 10, 2019. The two guards who were assigned to check his jail unit that night fell asleep and did not check on him for about three hours; the guards falsified related records. Two cameras in front of Epstein’s cell also malfunctioned that night.
