One such assumption made is that Disney, which already owns a nearby island, will purchase Epstein Island to build a theme park. Scrolling through the OJ Simpson news on your social media timelines will quickly show that this story, initially posted by Mouse Trap News, has gained some steam.

Epstein Island, officially known as Little St. James, is a private island located in the U.S. Virgin Islands, near St. Thomas. This island gained significant notoriety due to its former owner, the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein Island was the site of Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking activities, where he was accused of exploiting and abusing numerous young girls. The island was also frequented by high-profile individuals such as Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, and Ghislaine Maxwell.

The media coverage surrounding Epstein Island has been extensive, with major news outlets like The New York Times, CBS News, and NBC News reporting on the scandal. Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s accusers, has been vocal about her experiences on the island and has implicated individuals like Prince Andrew in the case.

The sordid history of Epstein Island has cast a dark shadow over its pristine surroundings, turning it into a symbol of corruption and exploitation. Despite Epstein’s death in 2019, the repercussions of his crimes continue to reverberate through court documents and ongoing investigations. The legacy of Epstein Island serves as a stark reminder of the abuse of power and the importance of holding those in positions of influence accountable for their actions.

But is Disney really buying the island? The short answer is no! Mouse Trap News, a continued source of satirical Disney news, posted the story, but a quick fact check shows that billionaire investor Stephen Deckoff actually owns two islands once belonging to Epstein. Although we’re unsure if the particular island, known by some as pedophile island, is among them, given the track record of Mouse Trap News to make up grabbing headlines based on popular subject matter for clicks, we can all rest safely in the knowledge that Disney is not purchasing Epstein Island.
