Roberta’s on Moore Street has been the target for conspiracy theorists who are trying to connect it to a made-up story about a Washington D.C. pizza joint being a front for a child prostitution ring organized by Hillary Clinton. Last Thursday, a 24-year-old female employee of the restaurant received a threatening call around 11:20 a.m., according to cops. “The caller stated ‘The victim will bleed and be tortured,’” a police spokesman said. The next day the store received another call asking if it had connections to a website that published the Pizzagate lie. No suspects have been named in the Roberta’s incident as of Wednesday. Representatives for restaurant didn’t respond to messages for comment.
