Masika Kalysha has one less gig to her name.
The ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ star came under fire when she took to social media faking a kidnap plot to promote her OnlyFans account. Yes, OnlyFans.
Sporting painted-on bruises, she informed distressed viewers she was in danger and had been “beat really bad.” She added that “they are coming back.”
As it turns out, it was nothing but a cheap (and tacky) ploy to drive attention in the direction of her pay-per-view page.
According to Kalysha, the approach wasn’t rooted in selfishness. Quite the contrary.
For, she claims it was themed after ‘Double Crossed’ – the TV show she’s currently filming about human trafficking.
Understandably, producers for the series didn’t see the humor in her behavior and have pulled her from the show.
Now, she’s issued an apology.
Her words (and the original video) below:
Via Masika Kalysha:
“While on set fully immersed in my character, for season two of Double Crossed, a show that bravely displays the reality and tragedy of human trafficking, I got caught up in the excitement of the moment and chose to use my platform to bring an essential topic to light by displaying my efforts to support the end of human trafficking. It is imperative that you understand the public’s safety and the victims are paramount to my actions. I made no money, nor was it ever my intent. With that being said, I am aware that the way I went about it was distasteful, and I apologize to anyone whom I have offended or hurt with my delivery. However, I am incredibly grateful that we now have an open dialogue to refocus our attention on what matters most. I urge everyone to join me in my efforts to bring awareness to this awful reality. But most importantly, I urge everyone to help put an end to human trafficking.”
