50 Cent, La La Anthony, and Starz will give viewers an in-depth look into the case of Cyntoia Brown.
A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) Cyntoia Brown was being sexually trafficked by a pimp named Kutthroat, when she was just 16-years-old, in the early 2000s. In 2004, Brown murdered a man she was pimped out to for $150 in Nashville, Tennessee named Johnny Allen. Brown claimed she killed the 43-year-old and self-defense, however, prosecutors declared the mans death was a robbery gone wrong. In 2006, Brown was tried as an adult, and convicted of murdering the real estate agent. She was sentenced to 51 years in prison for the murder. Browns case started receiving media coverage with the rise of the #metoo movement and her plight became a national topic, after Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, T.I., Snoop Dogg, and others began calling for her release from prison. In 2017, Kim Kardashian, whos currently studying to become a lawyer, went to work, as an advocate for Browns release. @KimKardashian The system has failed. Its heart breaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do whats right. Ive called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown
