It's common knowledge that many people can have the same name.
James Brown, Mary Jones and John Example Smith. All very common names.
Jeffery Epstein, although on face value seems very uncommon, shares his name with a few others.
Namely (lol get it) Jeffery R Epstein, who works at Disney.
This poor man has had to endure an almighty amount of hate mail to his twitter account, despite not actually being THAT Jeffery Epstein, the man who was accused of facilitating sex trafficking.
I guess I should appreciate all the RIPs, but I’m not dead. And I’m still *not* THAT Jeffrey Epstein.— Jeffrey R Epstein (@EpsteinJeffrey) 10 August 2019
Friends: So Jeffrey, how was your weekend?— Jeffrey R Epstein (@EpsteinJeffrey) 11 August 2019
Many people have come to his defence, including Yvette Nicole Brown and Kathy Griffin.
General PSA: My friend @EpsteinJeffrey has the same name as the monster arrested today, but he is not THAT #JeffreyEpstein yet his feed is in shambles.— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) 8 July 2019
My bud, Jeffrey is a lovely guy who works for Disney. Nicest guy EVER. #ThatsTheTweet
Omg. The reactions, comments on your social media, and facial expressions you get from people must be everything from terrifying to priceless.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) 14 July 2019
Not just celebs have been rallying around poor Jeffery R Epstein, he also had sympathies from US Sports Broadcaster, Gerry Sandusky, who is often mistaken online for Jerry Sandusky, a convicted rapist.
He does! He wrote to me. LOL.— Jeffrey R Epstein (@EpsteinJeffrey) 11 August 2019
This comes after many Australians have mistaken Americans called "Peter Dutton" as our Home Affairs Minister.
