On January 1, 2024, the Epstein list was revealed. The list contains the names of people who have been linked to Epstein through various means, such as through social connections or business relationships. 


There were many celebrities on the list including Stephen Hawking, Bill Clinton, and even Brad Pitt. There was a list of nearly 90 names released, three of them being declared as “redacted.” 


While it is important to note that the list itself is not a legally verified document, and the inclusion of someone’s name on the list does not necessarily imply guilt or involvement in illegal activities, it could still make you wonder: were they just innocently visiting the island for some vacation time, or some malicious intents?


Starting in 1998, Jeffery Epstein had begun a ring of illegal acts on his private island. Epstein’s scheme was found and shut down in 2018, with his accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, his wife, and resulting in serving 20 years in prison. However, according to The Independent, Epstein only ended up serving 18 months in prison because he agreed to a “Sweetheart Deal” with the FBI.


The reason the case was reopened is because the first lawsuit was put into action in 2015, and anyone could tell documents that were released aren’t new. The lawsuit happened because Ghislaine Maxwell accused Virginia Giuffre of lying about all the abuse she had endured from Epstein and others in his inner circle. 


After years of Maxwell’s legal team trying to block out the documents, they gave up the fight. The individuals named in the documents were given 14 days to appeal before the documents were to be unsealed in full from on January 1st.


With many celebrities being on this list, a common question arises among fans: who can we trust? Many people idolize these celebrities. Do we follow people blindly? The appearance of celebrities and their scandals have seemed to be making a lot of appearances with their fan bases consisting of thousands of people. What will come if our full trust is put into these celebrities and what sides do we truly see when the cameras are off?


This list made the internet go crazy, seeing their favorite celebrities on the list has made many people question whether they should worry about following them. Will this list affect the future of these celebrities?
