Ghislaine Maxwell’s brother doubts his sister will get fair trial

Published

on

Disgraced former socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is officially due to face trial next week, with her brother Ian raising doubts as to whether his sister will actually get a fair trial

Maxwell has been accused of trafficking minors for her former lover, Jeffery Epstein and has been in a New York jail since her arrest back in July 2020, where she pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Ian Maxwell believes his sister is relieved that the hearing is finally starting after being held in isolation for over 500 days, but fears the media interest in his sister’s case will jeopardise any chance of a fair trial.

Ian says the media reporting “has the potential to poison the jury pool at some level if they are only hearing one side of the story and not the other”.

One of Maxwell’s accusers, Virginia Giuffre is alleging that she was recruited by Ghislaine 20-years-ago whilst working at former President Donald Trump’s estate “for the purpose of being trafficked”.

Giuffre says “Ghislaine Maxwell is the one who abused her on a regular basis” and “trained her as a sex slave”.

But Ian Maxwell insists that his sister should stand in court as he says “there’s been an awful lot of talking by everybody for the last few years and the voice of Ghislaine has never been heard”.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
