One of the band members of Foster the People took to Twitter yesterday to claim that the dead body of Jeffrey Epstein that was photographed isn't actually him, that Jeffrey is alive and well and a huge coverup to keep him safe has been launched by his billionaire sex predator friends. It should be mentioned the photos used were circulated by conspiracy theory Q-Anon wackjobs and white supremacist site The Daily Stormer so the irresponsibility is sky high.
have you seen photos of the body? it’s obviously not him. my guess is, epstein’s on a private plane to somewhere in the middle east getting prepped for plastic surgery right now #EpsteinBodyDouble— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 11, 2019
More tweets under the cut, including the photos, so be warned if you're not into that:
i find it strange that i’ve been chastised by reporters from NBC and other news outlets for my opinion. everything you guys have been reporting has been conjecture. if you want to be considered a respected authority of truth, do a better job. #EpsteinBodyDouble pic.twitter.com/3TWkAYYuRn— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 12, 2019
and to anyone else who considers it “off brand” for an artist to talk about social issues, cover-ups, and justice.. A. you need a history lesson B. you’re scared of what i’m saying C. my voice is my brand, whether it’s used to speak or sing— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 12, 2019
the problem with a case like this, is that the public will forget about in a week. media will change headlines to another story and stop covering it. they already have. and it will be easily swept under the rug. just like the stephen paddock mass shooting.— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 12, 2019
there is no QUESTION the government is behind the #EpsteinSuicideCoverUp . Research Attorney General Bill Barr and his father’s ties with Jeffrey Epstein. Barr helped broker the west palm beach “deal” that kept Epstein away from a life sentence in federal prison 🤮— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 12, 2019
more than ever artists need to speak up, because they’re not getting paid by sponsors or told how to spin a story by their bosses. rupert murdoch isn’t controlling their narrative. support your artists. support real journalism. fact check everything. do your own research.— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 12, 2019
