On July 10, the American e-commerce company Wayfair began trending on social media over child trafficking allegations. And shortly after, people began discussing the probability of Jeffrey Epstein co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell tipping off authorities about the company. The reason? A recently emerged photo of Maxwell with the alleged 'president of operations' for the company, a man the internet has called 'Bill Hutcherson'.

As reported previously by MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), allegations against Wayfair are part of a conspiracy theory that emerged on Twitter when users noticed the brand was selling the same product at different prices, with names of missing children written next to them. Items such as high-priced cabinets and throw pillows priced at nearly $10,000 to $12,000 and $9,000 were listed on Wayfair's website alongside names of children, particularly girls, who have been missing for a while now. While the outlet has deleted all the alleged listings and also denied the claims, it didn't take long for people to link them to Maxwell who was recently incarcerated for being actively involved in convicted sex offender Epstein's pedophile ring.

It started with Republican political candidate Angela Stanton King tweeting: "Did Ghislane Maxwell tip authorities off about #Wayfair." And soon explanations flowed in with people noting how the theory could be plausible. "I'm willing to bet they will make a deal with her if she implicates Trump in some way! Why did they go after her now? Oh, we have an election. I'm not trusting any of them, this smells like another set up of taking down Trump," remarked a user on Twitter. Another wrote, "Ms maxwell sounds like she is a bit of everything, I wonder who she really belongs to and who she is working for, or perhaps she just plays with whoever is the most fun/profitable at the moment."

A third user noted: "If this Wayfair child trafficking thing is legit... ain't it interesting it's coming to light after Ghislaine Maxwell gets put in the slammer. 'When does a bird sing?'" A fourth user also shared a photo of Maxwell and a person called 'Bill Hutcherson', captioning it "Ghislaine Maxwell with the president of operations at #Wayfair." This claim has been tweeted around by several other users who all believe the two are somehow connected. A Twitter account called Anonymous 5G also posted the same photo, writing: "Oh... #wayfair has connections to ghislaine maxwell, Damn! She must have squealed and someone inside with a conscience spread the #wayfair thing! How else would we know???"

Summing it up for everybody not too keen to Google the entire conspiracy theory, a user shared: "Look at Wayfair items over $10k. Then cross check the names on google. Everyone comes back as a missing person. WTF. Ghislaine Maxwell must've squealed. Is it also coincidence that the owner of Wayfair, Niraj Shah, is on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank? #wayfairtrafficking."

These claims were made on a Twitter thread and MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) cannot independently verify and does not support the claims made on the Internet.
