Alex Jones, a prominent conspiracy theorist and the host of a popular right-wing radio show, has apologized for helping to spread and promote the hoax known as Pizzagate.”

Jones said on his show “To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking“.

The pizzagate consipiracy theory began in November 2016 in a Reddit forum of Trump supporters.  The theory claimed that Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria in Washington D.C. was involved in a child sex-trafficking ring that also included Hillary Clinton and her campaign chair John Podesta.  All of these allegations were proved to be false.
