Amid severe backlash from democrats and his opponents, former US President Donald Trump clapped back at allegations that he was on the plane of the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who died by suicide in a Manhattan jail in 2019.Taking to his social media platform Truth Social on Wednesday, Trump lashed out at actor Mark Ruffalo for sharing his fake images on the plane of disgraced pedophile Epstein.
The ‘Avengers’ actor, who shared a post of a user claiming that the ex-president took two separate flights to ‘Epstein Island’, owned up to a mistake of sharing phony, AI-generated images of Trump on X (formerly Twitter).
“Gross. #MAGA wants to paint everyone on those flights as pedophiles except the one guy who smiles in a group of young girls all headed to Epstein’s “Fantasy Island” with him,” Ruffalo wrote in his initial post on January 4.
“My bet is there are some decent republicans left in America that may think this is going too far,” he added
The actor later admitted his mistake, but not without taking a swipe at X CEO Elon Musk for how the actor feels he runs the platform. “Sorry Folks. Apparently these images are AI fakes. The fact Trump was on Epstein’s plane and what Epstein was up to is not. Be careful. Elon’s X and his allowing so much disinformation here is driving the value of his app down by 55%,” he wrote.
