The airport’s networking system on Wednesday displayed the message with text that read, “Airport is paging Epstein Coverup please meet your party at terminal two east by American Airlines.”
An airport spokesperson told 10News that the message was an employee error and that steps were “being taken to avoid such mistakes in the future.”
"San Diego International Airport’s paging system is a vital communications resource for airport users in a sometimes busy, hectic environment. Airport users depend on this system to reach loved ones or receive notifications in a timely manner,” the statement read. “In this instance, our employee made a mistake.”
The viral mistake comes one day after video was released from inside ABC studios that showed host Amy Robach claiming she had the story about Jeffrey Epstein and his sexual abuse years ago, but the network did not want to air it.
