Influencers tout ridiculous claims that online retailer Wayfair is trafficking CHILDREN through the sale of high-priced cabinets after the bizarre conspiracy theory swept the internet
A number of lifestyle influencers used their platforms over the weekend to spread an unfounded conspiracy theory that Wayfair is trafficking children through its website — a baseless claim that has been debunked by various outlets and denied by the company.
The allegation has been floating around social media since June and seems to have originated from the conspiracy-theory group QAnon, according to BuzzFeed News, but it gained traction last Thursday after a post shared on the Conspiracy subreddit went viral.
'Is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it's true,' wrote Reddit user PrincessPeach1987.
The original poster shared a screenshot from Wayfair's mobile site that shows four cabinets — named Neriah, Yaritza, Samiyah, and Alyvia — that cost between $12,699.99 and $14,499.99.

Having heard both points of view, what do you think? Maybe more research needed?
