Companies and charities are continuing to distance themselves from Britain's Prince Andrew in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking scandal. On Tuesday (November 19) it was learned that a program that the prince founded for entrepreneurs has taken down the logos of its big corporate sponsors from its website. A cached version of the page shows its missing AstraZeneca, Barclays, Cisco Systems, and several more. Queen Elizabeth's son steadfastly denies allegations that he had sex with a 17-year-old girl procured for him by Epstein -- his friend and the convicted sex offender who authorities say killed himself in a U.S. prison last August. But a disastrous TV interview with the BBC aired over the weekend has only escalated the scandal. The prince appeared to ramble and critics say he showed no compassion for Epstein's victims.
