An extremely savvy brewery is using the trendy “Epstein Did Not Kill Himself” meme to sell their beer following the masses becoming suspicious of exactly how disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein died in prison.
Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead inside his prison cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City on August 10 while awaiting trial for sex trafficking. New York medical examiners ruled Epstein’s cause of death to be suicide by hanging. However, many people have become suspicious of the ruling considering the wide range of coincidences that surround Epstein’s death.
Both correctional officers assigned to watch Epstein fell asleep for hours during the time of his death. Two prison cameras watching Epstein’s cell both malfunctioned. Weeks before Epstein’s death, he alleged that his former cellmate, who is an ex-cop who’s awaiting trial in a quadruple murder case, attacked him. The prison didn’t punish the police officer and instead put Epstein on suicide watch.
Conspiracy theorists also believe Epstein’s death was a murder and not suicide because he was connected with a wide array of influential politicians, business magnates, celebrities, and royalty from around the world. Many of these powerful people flew on his Boeing 727 airplane known as the “Lolita Express,” which took them to Jeffrey’s private Caribbean islands Little St. Jeff and Big St. Jeff. There are Epstein conspiracy theories that say he provided these powerful with underage girls for sexual purposes.
The internet is dealing with these legitimate questions by making memes to remind the public that “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”
A former Navy SEAL and founder of the Warrior Dog Foundation, Mike Ritland, snuck in “Epstein didn’t kill himself” on Fox News while discussing military dogs.
The saying has even shown up in signs at ESPN’s College GameDay.
Now a California brewery is using the Epstein conspiracy theory to sell beer with a crafty marketing campaign. The Tactical Ops Brewing in Fresno is printing the message “EPSTEIN DIDNT KILL HIMSELF” underneath blue cans of beer.
Tactical Ops Brewing manager Carlos Tovar said he first thought of the idea about a week ago because Epstein’s death is “a big thing right now.” He really started questioning Epstein’s death after distinguished pathologist Dr. Michael Baden told the public that Epstein’s autopsy “points toward homicide rather than suicide.”
The message will be printed on the bottom of their Basher Oatmeal Stout beer. The brewery will only be releasing one batch of the cans, about 54 packs worth.
“Tovar has sooooo got us all suicided. Lie and say nice things at our funerals,” the brewery joked in a Facebook post about the Epstein beer.
Epstein was arrested in 2005 and charged with four counts of unlawful sex with minors and one molestation count by the Palm Beach Police. He served 13 months and regularly left jail for personal and business reasons. The FBI compiled reports on “34 confirmed minors,” who said Epstein molested them. In July of 2019, The FBI compiled reports on “34 confirmed minors” who alleged that Epstein molested them according to Politico. Epstein was arrested at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey for allegedly trafficking underage girls for sex in his mansion. Epstein faced up to 45 years in prison if he was convicted on all charges, and he pleaded not guilty.
