The British vocalist Misha B has been applauded by viewers of the hit show the ‘X Factor UK‘ after revealing how a plot hatched by producers, and executed by its judges, almost drove her to suicide.
Her story below…
Misha, born Misha Amber Bryan, was a competitor on the show’s eighth season and was mentored by Kelly Rowland. Today, nine years after her time on the show, she has used Instagram Live to bare all on her experience.
An experience, marred by jealously, micro-aggressions and anti-blackness.
Powering her horrific experience? Judges Louis Walsh and the Urban Pop princess Tulisa.
Gary Barlow, another judge on the series, was one of the first cast-members to condemn the producers behind the plot to defame Misha publicly and confirm that producers were working tirelessly to sabotage her.
About half an hour before the show goes live, the producers would come in and they’d go, ‘Oh my God. That Misha. She’s a bully. Can’t believe it. She is such a bully. In fact, you know what? You should say it. You should say it on air.
Imagine how horrifying it must feel to be bashed on LIVE TV for being yourself. Misha B was continuously compared to other artists all throughout her time on X Factor by Louis Walsh. She was branded “overly confident” for being herself. Tulisa painted Misha B as the “mean” girl. pic.twitter.com/tGhhZBt9Yf
