Ellen DeGeneres’s ‘involvement’ in Wayfair child trafficking conspiracy questioned after site sells same pillows

Published

on

A Reddit user on Thursday (July 9 ) shared a screenshot from Wayfair’s website, which showed the furniture company selling its products for a high price and pointed out that the very names of the expensive cabinets were those that belonged to missing children. Soon internet users began to speculate whether Wayfair’s pricey products were in fact a front for child trafficking

The screenshot comprised of four cabinets, all named after children including “Neriah”, “Yaritza”, “Samiyah” and “Alyvia”. The Reddit user had written, “Is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it’s true.”

As the conspiracy theory went viral and people took to Twitter to question Wayfair for its product description, the company soon deleted everything from their site. However, a few of them were quick to notice that the American comedian and host Ellen DeGeneres was also selling some of the children’s items from her line with Wayfair. Internet users called Ellen out publicly asking if she was involved in Wayfair’s alleged child trafficking conspiracy. “@TheEllenShow please explain why you’re selling pillows on Wayfair for over 10k with missing children’s names on them? Are you a part of #wayfairtrafficking ???” asked one.

Twitter soon blew up as users took to the platform to point out that Ellen’s website was selling pillows of small size for a whopping $10,000 and even went on to ask why she hasn’t commented about the accusations against Wayfair. One user wrote, “#wayfair is trying to cover up the fact that it is part of a child/sex trafficking ring! People have been exposing them and they are changing their prices. Notice that Ellen DeGenerate (yes, she is) is attached to it.” Another added, “When are we gonna talk about how ellens line w wayfair only sells CHILDRENS items…? She doesnt even have kids lmaoo.”

And some noted that the prices of the same products were drastically brought down by Ellens’s website after people started flooding her with tweets questioning the rates. “Soooo at 9:52 AM I screenshot this Ellen pillow because $10,098 for a pillow is NUTS and sketchy. I go back and look at the link at 10:10 AM and it’s $99!! Something is definitely going on… #wayfair” noted one user. “Nobody going to talk about the fact with all the other allegations with Ellen that her f**king name is on this site for a pillow being sold for $10,000!? #wayfair,” said a livid user.

“Of course the items are down and renamed for more “clarity”, watch their most expensive pillow will now be like 100$, but explain this pillow from adrenochrome ELLEN #Wayfair” wrote another.” Another agitated user-added, “Disgusting and exposed!! Jail them and @TheEllenShow  #Wayfair”. 

Wayfair, however, has rejected the conspiracy theory involving unfounded child sex-trafficking accusations. “Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point.” the company had said in its statement.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Finally Bought a House

Published

on

Over the last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lived in multiple homes in three different countries, ranging from Frogmore Cottage—the Windsor home they received as a gift from Queen Elizabeth—to a luxurious waterfront home on Vancouver Island in Canada. But according to Page Six, they’re finally putting down roots in the United States, five months after moving due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, the outlet reported that the couple bought a home in Santa Barbara, an hour and a half northwest of downtown Los Angeles, and have been living there since July. “It has been a very special time for them as a couple and as a family—to have complete privacy for six weeks since they moved in,” a source said. “They intend to put down their roots in this house and the quiet community, which has considerable privacy. This is where they want to bring Archie up, where they hope he can have as normal a life as possible.” Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson confirmed the move to the outlet.

The source didn’t reveal any details about the house or what the first-time homebuyers paid, but said they were planning to stay for a while. “They have thought about this carefully and researched it well. This is the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie, giving him the chance to play with other children his age.”

It does mean that they’re forgoing the palatial and distinctive mansion that they borrowed from Tyler Perry, but Page Six’s source said that it’s for the better. “While it was a nice favor to them at a very difficult time, Tyler Perry’s house with 18 bedrooms isn’t Harry’s style,” they said. “Yes, he grew up in royalty and the halls of Buckingham Palace, but he prefers more intimate homes with character.” The source added that they were already in the process of buying the home when they filed a lawsuit against paparazzi for photographing them on Perry’s property. 

Even before the couple announced their plans to leave the royal family, they were looking at properties in the Los Angeles area. Last September, sources told Vanity Fair that they were trying to buy in Calabasas, but by February, Caitlyn Jenner claimed she heard rumors that their hunt had moved to Malibu.

‘The Crown’ Casts Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip

Published

on

The Crown has a new Prince Philip. Game of Thrones actor and Oscar nominee Jonathan Pryce is set to appear in both Seasons 5 and 6 as Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Variety reports.

The actor is taking over the role from Tobias Menzies, who played the prince in Season 3 and Season 4, which is set to premiere on Netflix later this year. Matt Smith previously held the role in Seasons 1 and 2. When Pryce joins The Crown for Season 5, he will be accompanied by Imelda Staunton, the series’ next Queen Elizabeth, and Lesley Manville, Season 5’s Princess Margaret.

Pryce earned an Oscar nomination this year for his role in The Two Popes, playing Pope Francis alongside Anthony Hopkins‘ Pope Benedict. He’s also appeared in Glengarry Glen Ross and Tomorrow Never Dies, and more recently played High Sparrow on Game of Thrones. 

While the fourth upcoming season of The Crown is due later in 2020, fans will have to wait a while to see Pryce in his Season 5 role. The show is taking a filming break — pre-planned and unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic — and won’t be back for its fifth season until 2022, since Netflix won’t being filming until June of next year.

Creator Peter Morgan originally said that Season 5 would be the final installment of The Crown, but he pleased fans when he revealed last month that the show would continue for Season 6, which will be its last season.

“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” he said at the time. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day – it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”

Captain Marvel 2’s Nia DaCosta Responds To Mulan Skipping Its Theatrical Run

Published

on

Either way, it’s yet to be seen if Mulan skipping a theatrical release will end up as a mistake. Arguably, the move could see pushback from audiences and also lose out on box office numbers. On the other hand, fans eager to see a movie of its scope might flock to see it regardless of the Disney+ subscription and additional $30 price, making it a big hit and reaching an even larger audience than if it were in the theaters. Mulan is scheduled to release September 4 on Disney+.
