Over the weekend, the Tesla CEO took to Twitter to share an image of "Things he'll never see" throughout his lifetime. The meme featured a dinosaur, unicorn, fire-breathing dragon, and text reading "The Epstein/Maxwell client list".

The 50-year-old billionaire accompanied the post with the caption: "Only thing more remarkable than DOJ not leaking the list is that no one in the media cares. Doesn’t that seem odd?"

The post quickly went viral on the platform, amassing over 69,000 retweets from fellow Twitter users. However, not everybody on the platform was supportive of Musk.

In fact, one person was quick to share a photo of the billionaire alongside Maxwell, along with the caption: "I found one."

Undeterred by the tweet, Musk clarified why there is a photo of him standing next to Maxwell - who last year was convicted of multiple counts in her sex-trafficking trial.

"Ah yes, Maxwell photobombing me at a @VanityFair Oscars party – you should them why they invited her.

"The same people who push this photo say nothing about prominent people who actually went to his island a dozen times. Also very strange..."

As reported by the Daily Mail, a "black book" belonging to convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein was first published to the news and gossip site Gawker back in 2015. It included the names of several high-profile people and a detailed their relationship with the American financier.

Those listed in the book have not been accused by law enforcement of any wrongdoing or been associated with any crimes committed by Epstein or Maxwell.

The New York Times also reports that during Maxwell's trial last year, an address book was also discussed that contained the names of their victims and several of Epstein's clients. The address book was not made public following an agreement by the defense and prosecution.

After being found guilty on five of the six charges brought against her in late December, Maxwell will be sentenced on June 28.

Epstein first came under investigation by police back in 2005 after being accused of committing crimes against minors. In 2008, he pleaded guilty to state charges in Florida of soliciting and procuring a minor for prostitution - this plea deal was later ruled to be illegal as a number of his victims weren’t consulted during the sentencing.

He was arrested once again in July 2019, and later found unresponsive in his cell on August 10.

At the age of 66, Epstein was pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital. His death was ruled an apparent suicide.
