While speaking out against human trafficking, reality star and model Alexis Skyy revealed a heartbreaking truth about herself. The 25-year-old revealed that she too was a victim of human trafficking.
“Atlanta, GA is one of the top 5 cities for human trafficking in the US,” she captioned. “Please be safe out here and watch your surroundings! Always trust your gut! If you observe something strange, PLEASE REPORT IT! I’ve never spoken about this, but I seriously felt compelled to share my story because it can happen to any of us.”
This year, Atlanta has been in the news frequently regarding human trafficking. Just last week, 15 people were arrested in a human trafficking ring bust in Coweta County in Georgia, according to 11 Alive. Back in August, it was reported that Atlanta hotel employees actually helped human traffickers avoid police by standing guard in front of the rooms, warning them when police were on the premises and when guests complained.
