Francia Raisa is speaking out about an encounter with supporters of President Donald Trump that she says had her fearing for her life.
On Sunday, the Grown-ish actress opened up in a tearful video on her Instagram Story from inside her car, alleging that she had been “boxed in” by Trump supporters while driving in southern California.
“I was just on the 405 and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally and they f—ing boxed me in and they’re pointing at me and laughing at me, saying, ‘Ha ha.’ And literally, I almost crashed because they wouldn’t let me out,” said a visibly shaken Raisa, 32, through sobs. “I was trying to go around it, and they were all stopping and going.”
“They boxed me in on the f—ing freeway; all I wanted to do was go around, and they were just being so violent. I could’ve crashed. I could’ve f—ing crashed,” she continued. “It was so dangerous, and I just don’t understand why that’s the country that y’all are supposedly wanting right now. Really? That’s what makes America great?”
“That’s f—ed up. I could’ve f—ing died right now. That was so f—ing dangerous,” Raisa said. “Pointing at me and laughing at a Mexican. Oh God, that was really f—ing scary.”
