Influencers React To Cyntoia Brown Being Granted Executive Clemency.

At 16 years old, Cyntoia Brown was sentenced to life for manslaughter.  Cyntoia, a victim of child sex trafficking, was living with a pimp named Cut Throat who was abusing her and forcing her into sex work according to The Cut.  In that same year, she met a 43-year-old man named Johnny Allen who coerced Cyntoia into coming back to his home. She shared that while there she was in fear for his safety which led to her shooting him and leaving with his wallet.

Her heartbreaking story went viral and many activists, celebrities, and Influencers tirelessly protested for her release.  15 years later, Tennessee governor Bill Haslam has granted Cyntoia clemency.  She will be eligible for release on August 7th, 2019.
