Hosea Chanchez, best known for his role as Malik Wright on “The Game,” took to social media on Tuesday and revealed he was molested at 14 by a friend’s father.
The revelation came less than 24 hours after the actor shared he was reading the powerful book, “Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender.”
Hosea posted a photo of himself at 14 with the caption:
I’m Hosea Chanchez and when I was 14 years old I was molested BY my friend’s father. This man is a predator, preying on children who’s trust he’s falsely built through lies, manipulation, threats, and secrets.
I hope this truth helps to stop child molesting predators from sexually assaulting more children. Pedophiles have no place in our society they hide in the open and rape children who are afraid to speak up because of shame, guilt, fear, denial and the thought that no one will believe them.
I’m doing this to help parents and young children become aware of some of the signs and better protect themselves from sexual predators. (Swipe to read my TRUTH)
