We previously reported… Kalysha responded to the criticism in a follow up video confirming she had not been kidnaped. The fake kidnapping was allegedelly part of a project about sex trafficking.

“Double Cross” features two sisters fighting against the sex trafficking of young girls. Masika was tapped to star in the second season, Hot New Hip Hop reports.

“Now that I got your attention, I want to talk about something very important. Sorry if I scared you, but sometimes you need that shock factor,” she said in the video. “… I’m on set right now filming for my new show—this is all camera makeup. I’m totally fine, you guys … This is a very challenging role for me because this is something I am very passionate about and shooting this show, I’ve done a lot of research and I’ve had to dig deep and I just, you know, found out things that I never wanted to know.” 

Meanwhile, the creators of “Double Cross” condemned the stunt.

Christel Gibson, the creator of the show, reportedly pressured Masika into issuing a public apology. When she refused to do so, she was axed from the show. 

“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,” said UMC, the show’s streaming service, in a statement to The Blast. “‘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.”
