Alma says her daughter, Emmy’s, behavior is out of control. She claims the 16-year-old drinks alcohol and smokes marijuana, is disrespectful, has physically attacked her and has been kicked out of two schools in the last two years. But, Alma says the teen’s worst offense was when she posted a video online wearing blackface that went viral.

“It was a joke,” Emmy says, claiming that her friend filmed her and posted the video on the internet. “I look at my phone, and there’s just, like, my phone is popping like with death threats, and, like, people just like my friends, even telling me to kill myself and stuff. And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Like, people didn’t take that as a joke.’”

The teen says she even needed to leave the country to escape the many death threats.
