It Takes A Village to Raise A Child
An outcry for help and concern for the life and wellbeing of a Georgia teen was answered by Ms. Debra Antney on Saturday, September 6, after a disturbing video of the teen being attacked by her father and stepmother surfaced on Instagram Live.
The father defended his actions in the video, saying that the form of discipline is called “court” and that he was disciplining his daughter for running away and lying. The graphic video shows the teen sitting in a chair in the garage while her father and a woman who is believed at this point to be her stepmother question her. They belittle her and repeatedly strike her during the line of questioning. At one point, the young lady is able to run out of that garage, but her father runs after her and drags her back into the garage to continue the beating. The father is also seen at one point, throwing the girl on the floor and sitting on her chest. He told people to get at him if they didn’t like what they saw.
Deb And Lil Scrappy Answered The Call For Help
Many saw the video and were motivated to find help for the teen and notify authorities. Still, there were conflicting reports about where the family was as they had reportedly recently moved. Rapper Lil Scrappy was amongst the many that asked for help for the teen. CEO of Mizay Entertainment Debra Antney got wind of the situation and was so disgusted that they made the trip to Clayton County Georgia to pick up the young girl.
In an Instagram post, the child is seen in the car with Ms. Antney, and she gives her thanks to Lil Scrappy and everyone that was on high alert. Ms. Antney asks that we are mindful and mature about the situation because there is a young child involved. It is important that we respect her privacy at this time.
