Robbie Williams Faces Backlash For Suggesting ‘Pizzagate’ Conspiracy Theory Is True

Is Robbie Williams onto something here?

If you’ve never heard of ‘Pizzagate’, it basically centres around a conspiracy theory that gained traction during the 2016 Presidential election, where it was claimed that high-ranking members of the Democrat Party including Hillary Clinton were involved in a child sex/human trafficking ring linked to a pizza restaurant in Washington DC.

There were some interesting tidbits and suspicious clues that would lead one to believe Pizzagate was real, but ultimately the theory was debunked by Snopes, the New York Times, and others. Yeah OK you might say they’ve got it wrong or are “in on it” or whatever, but at the end of the day it was always a far-fetched theory that probably isn’t true, though obviously anything is possible in this crazy world of ours.

Anyway, the theory has regained traction on TikTok these last few weeks, and Robbie Williams of all people has now caught some flak for suggesting Pizzagate is true:

Here’s what he said in text:

Look, there might be a perfectly reasonable explanation for that language, who knows. The fact that we don’t know means that nothing has been debunked. Yes, there was no basement in the particular pizza place. That’s not the debunking that I want, as a civilian, a human that’s going “hey, this bit, this bit’s really f***ing weird, what is that bit”.

Nobody’s been asked, nobody’s said and there’s been no answers. But the overarching reporting on this story is debunked fake news. It’s not. The right questions haven’t been asked to the right people in the right places.

Just as I take my popstar hat off, my celebrity hat off, and just talk as Robert from Stoke-on-Trent, ST6 7HA, opposite the Ancient Briton, big up Stoke-on-Trent – just as that guy for a moment, that’s watching from the terraces, why aren’t those questions being asked?

And also, if there is an explanation and it’s perfectly reasonable, then the explanation is perfectly reasonable. It doesn’t feel like it.

The reaction to Robbie’s comments online have been mixed. Some people think he’s onto something:

And others think he’s a bit of a dumbass:

In fairness to Robbie, I don’t think it’s accurate to say that he’s a Pizzagate “truther”. All he said is that it needs to be investigated properly which is probably a good shout especially considering that weird pizza-based coded language in the leaked emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta.

Fair play to Robbie for saying what he thinks anyway, even if it turns out he’s completely wrong. Takes some balls to talk about things like Pizzagate when you’re a celebrity living in the States.
