Former guest on Dr Phil calls for apology after suffering abuse at troubled teen ranch


The 17-year-old rapper and media personality Bhad Bhabie has called for an apology from Phil McGraw, the host of Dr Phil, after she was allegedly abused at Turn-About Ranch, the “troubled teen” programme she was referred to after appearing on Mr McGraw’s programme in 2016.

Bhad Bhabie first spoke about the alleged abuse at the ranch after 19-year-old Hannah Archuleta, who also appeared on Dr Phil, accused a member of the ranch staff of sexual assault, according to Complex. 

Bhad Bhabie spoke about her experience in a video in cooperation with Breaking Code Silence, which states on its website that it’s a “social movement organized by survivors of institutional child abuse and activists to raise awareness of the problems in the Troubled Teen Industry”.

“When I had seen the punishments [Archuleta] was given, I knew I really had to say something,” Bhad Bhabie says in the video.

“So, Dr Phil, I’m going to give you from now to April 5 to issue an apology, not only to me, but to Hannah, and any other child you sent to Turn-About or any other program like this. If you don’t, I’m gonna handle things my way,” she added.
