Wayfair human trafficking conspiracy theory has everyone thinking that the company’s current (2020) CEO Niraj Shah has resigned/stepped down from the job. Is it true or just a hoax? Let’s find out.
On July 10, a user posted a controversial article in r/controversy subreddit on the Reddit platform. The post correlated various products being sold on the online portal of American furniture retailer Wayfair to the missing children in 2020 and before.
The user PrincessPeach1987 posted a founding a screenshot of Wayfair’s highly-priced cabinets and questioned the fellow users, “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 :(” Check out Wayfair CEO Resigns/Steps Down details.
Wayfair Human Trafficking Conspiracy Theory
The theory stated that the names of overly priced goods in Wayfair WFX Utility collection related to the names of people went missing in 2020.
The Wayfair storage cabinets are named as “Neriah Storage Cabinet” (Neriah, missing since 2010), Yaritza Storage Cabinet (Yaritza Castro, missing since June 2020), and a plethora of products matching with the initials of missing children.
The theory had everyone googling and searching for more evidence to stabilize the theory. The hashtag #Wayfair trended on Twitter yesterday for a good deal of time. People posted their foundings which kind of proved the fact that Wayfair is a big front for human child trafficking racket, possibly linked to Jeffrey Epstein.
The latest rumor doing rounds on social media is that Wayfair CEO Niraj Shah has stepped down or resigned from his job after a tweet went viral. Wayfair CEO resigns/steps down? Truth or Hoax?

Wayfair CEO Resigns/Steps Down 2020: Rumor Debunked
No, Wayfair’s CEO has not stepped down or resigned the job title. There is no official confirmation so far from any media house or from any Wayfair spokesperson yet.
The speculation is made on a tweet that went viral following the Wayfair’s human trafficking controversy. No proofs were attacked to the tweet, it only contained a compilation photo of several Wayfair products and their respective missing children’s names.
The channel @BardsFM posted the tweet “The CEO of #Wayfair has resigned. Of course, that’s normal when you are guilty of selling KIDS on your website disguised as cheap furniture.” And it received above 1.1K retweets in just two hours.
UPDATE: The account has deleted the tweet now. Check out the screenshot below.
The tweet led people to believe that Wayfair’s CEO resigned from the job.
We can confirm that the CEO has not resigned as of yet because earlier yesterday, a spokeswoman of Wayfair, Frechette denied the allegations of the company’s involvement in human trafficking racket. She sent an email to Newsweek.com and she did not add any information about Wayfair’s CEO resigns from the job.
Frechette said, “Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point.”
