Foster The People share body double conspiracy theory about Jeffrey Epstein

12 August 2019, 14:47 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Foster The People have shared a body double conspiracy theory in response to Jeffrey Epstein's death.

Last weekend, Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire financier who knew Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, was found dead in his New York jail cell.

It's reported that Epstein died by suicide, but Foster The People think otherwise.

In a series of tweets yesterday (11 August), Foster The People shared their thoughts behind the death of Epstein, and believe it's down to a body double conspiracy theory.

They wrote, "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."

Soon after they compared images of Epstein's facial outline when he was alive and dead to back up their theory.

Foster The People went on to write, "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."

The LA band carried on backing up their theory, "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."

Before signing off for the night, the band wrote, "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 dropped their latest single "Imagination" back in June.
