The richest person in the world has taken a swipe at the media over allegedly being disinterested in investigating the suspected clients of the alleged sex trafficking ring run by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
Although Epstein and Maxwell were accused of operating a child sex trafficking ring, none of their clients have been charged. According to some abuse survivors, the ring’s clients include powerful politicians, businessmen, and other influential leaders, who, since Epstein's scandal broke, have attempted to distance themselves from the financier.
Epstein, who in 2008 was convicted and sentenced for soliciting prostitution from a minor, was found dead in a New York federal jail in August 2019. At the time, he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges for abusing women and girls in Manhattan and Florida from 2002 to 2005.
A commenter to the threat posted a picture of Musk and Maxwell at a Vanity Fair party in 2014. In response to the picture, Musk took a further swipe at those who are pushing the theory that he is associated with Maxwell and Epstein.
The billionaire later highlighted a Vanity Fair article published in 2003, which reads, “Lately, Jeffrey Epstein’s high-flying style has been drawing oohs and aahs: the bachelor financier lives in New York’s largest private residence, claims to take only billionaires as clients, and flies celebrities including Bill Clinton and Kevin Spacey on his Boeing 727.”
“Where is their “client” list? Shouldn’t at least one of them go down!?” Musk commented.
