Concerned users on X have sounded the alarm regarding the sale of seemingly ordinary pictures of pizza on Etsy, priced from $3,000 to $20,000 and beyond.

Many X users suggested that the images might be associated with a potential child sex trafficking ring on the e-commerce platform.

General Flynn has also commented on the pizza listings on Etsy, sharing a recent quote from another user on X that read: “Hey Etsy — I would like an explanation for these suspicious posts, and I still would like an explanation for why I’m not allowed to sell “Child Lives Matter” products while you approve products that promote Satan!”

New Mexico’s Democrat Attorney General, Raúl Torrez, has initiated legal action against Meta, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Facebook “in an effort to curb child sexual exploitation on its platforms.”

The lawsuit highlighted how the pedophiles “ use PIZZA as code for child porn to hide their criminal behavior.”

Far-left Media Matters wrote an article about it, unsuccessfully to attempting to “debunk” the child sex-trafficking claims as a “conspiracy theory”:

Far-right online figures are spreading a conspiracy theory claiming the e-commerce platform Etsy is hosting a child trafficking market — reminiscent of the baseless claim that targeted the online furniture and home goods retailer Wayfair in 2020. Some far-right figures are even calling Etsy “the new Wayfair,” as the conspiracy theory spread across X (formerly Twitter), far-right message boards and right-wing platforms, and more mainstream platforms such as Reddit, TikTok, and Meta’s platforms, apparently earning millions of views.

The conspiracy theory about Etsy — which is similar to a 2020 conspiracy theory about Wayfair — claims that certain products on the platform, like those with images showing pizza and children, have anomalously high prices because the actual product for sale is a trafficked child, child sexual abuse material, or something related. The claim that “pizza” is a code word for pedophilia was a key component of the false Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which was a precursor to the QAnon and Wayfair conspiracy theories.

The Wayfair conspiracy theory, spurred by a QAnon influencer, forced the company to rebut the claims and caused the Department of Homeland Security to investigate the claim. The investigators found no evidence to support any of the allegations.

On December 10, a QAnon-promoting account on X, @NiQole1776, posted that it had discovered pizza-related products selling on Etsy for thousands of dollars, and the account suggested that these products were suspicious, writing, “Don’t let them gaslight you anymore.”
