Ezra Koenig has interviewed Foster The People about that Jeffrey Epstein conspiracy theory.
Frontman Mark Foster was vocal on Twitter about his thoughts on Jeffrey Epstein's death, claiming it was a cover up.
Using the hashtag #EpsteinBodyDouble he wrote:
have you seen photos of the body? it’s obviously not him. my guess is, epstein’s on a private plane to somewhere in the middle east getting prepped for plastic surgery right now #EpsteinBodyDouble— Foster The People (@fosterthepeople) August 11, 2019
Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig brought Mark Foster on to his Beats 1 show Time Crisis, and the pair discussed it further.
Mark Foster commented: "Look, I’m not a forensics expert—I put out a fucking tweet. You know what I mean? Just being a musician that wanted to put out a tweet and start a public discourse about this guy. But you look at the photo, and it’s not the same guy!"
The pair have a lengthy discussion about other conspiracy theories, including the JFK Assassination and 9/11.
At the end, Ezra Koenig asks Mark Foster what he wanted people to take away from all this: "I guess I would say that I feel like we’re living in an age of misinformation. People need to do their own research and dig and not believe everything that you hear."
