Rumours are claiming that popular actor Brad Pitt claimed during a recent interview that the entire TV and movie industry is controlled by “Elite Hollywood Pedophiles” that reach across the United States. The rumours seem to link back to an article on a website called NeonNettle.com which reads in part –
Following the recent spate of pedophile arrests in California, movie star Brad Pitt has revealed the true depths of Hollywood pedophilia in a shocking exposé.As a 30-year seasoned veteran in the movie business, Pitt speaks about his experiences after witnessing the dark side of the entertainment industry first hand.Mr. Pitt describes how the whole TV and film industry is run around a culture of grooming children for child trafficking networks that reach across the United States and beyond, into the upper echelons of the political spectrum and societal hierarchy:
The story is false and lacks any credible sources to back it up. While many other blogs have reported on the same story, they all appear to have used the original NeonNettle.com article as their source. However there is evidence that the actor made any such claim during an interview, which would surely have been picked up by various media outlets (mainstream or alternative) if the actor did say such a thing.
Additionally Mr. Pitt has made no such evident attempt of communicating such a claim through any such medium including his popular social media channels. The only source to this story is an unsubstantiated report on NeonNettle.
It should also be noted that the website NeonNettle.com appears to be a mixture of genuine, clickbait and outright fake articles. Other stories the site carries include a copied and pasted fake news story claiming an MI5 agent admitted to killing Princess Diana. However that story originated from a bona-fide fake news website that even admitted the story was fabricated.
