Tisha Campbell says she was nearly ‘snatched up’ by ‘human traffickers’ after a day of shooting film

Actress Tisha Campbell is warning fans of how she was nearly a victim of alleged human traffickers after a scary run-in with two men in the town where she’s been filming.

‘Don’t freak out but I think I almost got snatched up,’ she revealed in an intense post on Instagram on Friday, January 28.

According to TMZ, the Martin star has been filming an independent movie, which includes elements of alleged human trafficking, in Brownsville, Texas, about a 10 minute drive from the Mexican border.

Scary tale: Actress Tisha Campbell, 53, revealed she was almost ‘snatched up’ by alleged human traffickers after a scary run-in with two men in a Texas border town where she’s been filming

The incident began just after she ended a day of filming on set, and needed a ride, but there weren’t any Ubers and Lyfts available.

As Campbell explains, she was given a phone number of a taxi by a man who was at the front desk, presumably of the production team for the project.

Not long later, two men pulled up in what she describes as ‘a sketchy van’ and demanded that she get in the vehicle.  

‘The guy is just standing there; I just thought he was getting dropped off, but he’s just standing there, and he goes “get in”, and I go, “what”, and he goes, “get in’, and I say “no”, she explains, before continuing, ‘And then I look inside the car and it’s all f***ed up. The rubber is pulled up from the bottom; there’s dirt everywhere; the backseat looked like it was snatched out, and snatched out for a f***ing reason.’

The man in the driver’s seat then jumps into the conversation and demands that she get in the vehicle. 

Sensing something’s wrong, Campbell then tells the driver that she’s ‘not getting in that f***ing car, f**k y’all, get the f**k out of here.’ 

From there, the actress went back to the front desk and asked a woman who was there where she could find the man who had given her that phone number.

That front desk worker was confused and indicated that the phone number wasn’t the normal one for the taxi company. 

Somethings off: Campbell refused to get in what she described as 'a sketchy' van with two men inside; after refusing their demands, the Martin star went back to the front desk but never found the man who had giver her a phone number for the taxi

Campbell, who never did find the man who had given her that phone number, acknowledged she was shaken up by the incident, and convinced that ‘trafficking’ was at play. 

‘Yo this trafficking s**t is real but they got me f***ed up,’ the Boomerang star said two times over before ending with, ‘Because I ain’t Gina b**ch.’ 

‘I felt it important for ppl to be aware. I need for EVERYONE to be overly conscious of themselves and their loved ones,’ she wrote on Instagram, adding, ‘I am thankful to the production for their concern and their understanding.’

She ended her post by writing that the incident ‘was a set up for real.’

Confessing she was cared by the incident, Campbell said 'I felt it important for ppl to be aware. I need for EVERYONE to be overly conscious of themselves and their loved ones,' she wrote on Instagram; the Boomerang actress is pictured in July 2021
