After trending #1 on Twitter for a day and a half, Wayfair has now responded to allegations that they’re part of a world-wide sex trafficking ring.
The company issued a statement. They also removed many of the “oddly-priced” items from their site, but maintain nothing was “wrong” with the items and the prices were valid, it’s just that the retailer didn’t “explain” the high-cost.
How on earth do you explain a cruddy-looking for $10K throw pillow or shower curtain?
Here’s their statement:
"There is, of course, no truth to these claims. The products in question are industrial-grade cabinets that are accurately priced. … The supplier did not adequately explain the high price point [and] we have temporarily removed the products from site…"

I woke up this morning, made my coffee, and fed my dogs, and then sat down in my oversized comfy chair and started looking online to see what news unfolded while I was asleep…and boy, oh boy, did I get an “eyeful.”
I looked on Twitter and saw that ‘Wayfair” was trending.
I have serious issues with Wayfair…a couple years back I bought thousands of dollars worth of furniture and accessories to furnish a big brand new house and nearly everything I got was total junk.
So, when I saw that it was trending, I was secretly hoping those junk-peddlers were going out of business…but what I found out when I looked in the hashtag was waaaaaaaay crazier than that.
This is the hottest shirt on the market right now! Let your fellow American Patriots know where you stand! FJB!!! Get your shirt HERE before they run out!!
Apparently, there’s a very popular conspiracy theory floating around that Wayfair is actually a “front” for a child sex trafficking ring.
I know…I was like, “what the heck???”
So I started reading what people were saying and sharing. As I go through the tweets, I see these screenshots of average, crappy-looking pillows for sale on Wayfair for nearly $10k. One pillow in particular shared the same name as a girl in Southfield, Michigan, who went missing.
Okay, this was getting weird…I needed more coffee and I had to look into this a bit more.
I decided to go on Wayfair and see if this “pillow” was really for sale at that absurd price.
And much to my surprise, it was actually there – a pillow named “Duplessis” that is being sold for a whopping $9,999.00 by a third-party international company called “Bungalow Rose.”
Maybe it was just a typo? Maybe the cost was supposed to be $9.99?
I mean, that seems very logical to me.
Well, not according to the online conspiracy theorists, because they say the unique name of the overpriced pillow matches the name of a missing girl from Michigan.

And apparently, it’s not just the pricey pillow…there are other very high-priced items on Wayfair – many of these items named after females, which conspiracy theorists believe are part of this “online sex trafficking” ring.
They believe third-party companies are using furniture and accessories as a front to advertise children for sale on Wayfair.
Sounds wild, right?
I found a few of the more detailed tweets to share with you.
I’ll let you look at them and draw your own conclusions.

A few years ago, if you’d have told me this I would have laughed it off and never even gave it a second thought.
Today though, while I don’t really buy into this, I still wouldn’t it put it past our illuminates to do something so outrageous.
I have realized there are some really wicked, wealthy, and powerful people out there in this world that do a lot of sick and twisted things…I just think these types of people have a much more sophisticated network than junk-peddler “Wayfair.”
