A photo shows that since 2010, Elon Musk’s jet has been flown 12 times to Little St. James, the island of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. In 2010, Elon Musk’s jet made 12 trips to Little St. James, the island of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in the US Virgin Islands.
However, after other users reposted the image, @wawajawn soon admitted to creating it and said it was a fake. According to NBC News, a lawsuit that was settled in November alleged that Little St. James and Great St. James, both owned by the late Epstein, were once used as the base of an extensive sex trafficking operation. I.
Tweeted the image of the fake map the same day Twitter removed an account named @elonjet that had tracked the real-time location of Musk’s plane. We had earlier reported on the story which included reports of alleged stalking and banning of several journalists.
Despite the map image being fake, it still spread to other Twitter accounts, including the popular Shares of Anonymous operation and a user named Keith Edwards. Edwards is the former communications director for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried’s 2022 campaign. He also once worked for an anti-Trump organization known as the Lincoln Project.
Edwards tweeted that this is old data from Elon’s jet so it’s okay to share. This was in response to a tweet that Musk had shared just seven minutes earlier. Musk’s tweet states that any account giving information about the real-time location of any person will be suspended as it is a violation of physical security. The last part of the tweet was apparently referring to AdWords, where someone had briefly traveled, which is fine if there is no security issue.
We contacted Edwards via Twitter DM to ask if he posted the map image as a joke, but did not receive a response prior to publishing this story. reddit. A Reddit post featured the original tweet by @wawajawn.
Several comments on the post, as well as replies to tweets, noted that there is no landing strip visible on Little St. James, which would mean that the image may not even include the flight path. To top all the shares on Twitter and Reddit (and 9GAG), the fake image was also posted on a 4Chan thread. (Relevant posts can be found by searching the page for the text Elon-Jet.
While the map image was fake, we found that Vanity Fair reported in 2019 that Musk said that he and his then-wife, Talulah Riley, once met briefly with Epstein in New York. Musk said he declined Epstein’s invitation to visit his island. Musk and Riley later divorced. Several years ago I was with Talulah in Manhattan for about 30 minutes in the middle of the afternoon, Musk said, because she was hoping to meet the strange man she was writing about.
We didn’t see anything inappropriate other than the weird art. He repeatedly tried to take me to his island. Riley also made a statement on Twitter in 2020, saying that the one-on-one meeting with Epstein was nothing more than part of a schedule of meetings.
