Masika Kalysha issued an apology for her recent fake kidnapping video she posted to promote her OnlyFans account.
"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," says Masika.
"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," she continues before urging people to help put a stop to sex trafficking.
Shortly after the video went viral, UMC revealed that it had fired the star.
"In light of the offensive video posted by Masika Kalysha while on the set of our series, "Double Cross," we've made the decision to part ways with her immediately and will be recasting her role. "Double Cross" was created to shed light on the horrors of sex trafficking and we strongly condemn any inclination that such a serious issue should be made light of."
