Tisha Campbell took to her social media today to reveal that she was possibly the target of a group of men attempting to snatch her up. The Martin actress posted a video visibly flustered alerting fans to the strange ordeal she experienced yesterday while filming at an undisclosed location. The scary tale has fans happy she is safe but still terrified from what could have potentially happened to the beloved star.
Tisha posted a video that she says she sent to her brother following the incident. “This was a video I sent to my brother right after it happened, but I felt it important for ppl to be aware. I need for EVERYONE to be overly conscious of themselves and their loved ones.”
In the clip, she begins to talk about how she felt like someone was trying to kidnap her. “Don’t freak out, but I think I almost got snatched up. They don’t got Ubers where I’m filming,” she told the camera. According to Campbell, an unidentified man gave her the number to a taxi service. When it arrived, she did not feel comfortable with the state of the van or the men in it. Campbell says a man jumped out of the back of the vehicle and told her to get in the car. According to the actress, the backseats looked like they were snatched out for a reason.
The man then aggressively demanded that Tisha Campbell get in the back seat. She barked back, “no!” They then demanded she get in the front. Campbell was not having it and quickly went back inside to ask the front desk attendant if she was familiar with this cab service. The man who gave her the number was nowhere to be found, and the woman said she did not recognize the number or cab.
In the caption, the actress took a moment to bring awareness to what she’s calling ‘Shopping season.’ According to Campbell this is season when they try to snatch people up. The actress thanked Tony D. Rivera who she says schooled her and her friends on what to look out for when facing with type of situation. “If Tony Rivera hadn’t schooled me and my friends on what to look for, [Things] would’ve been real different. PLUS, I don’t sound like I look. Also, I am thankful to the production for their concern and their understanding.”
Thankfully Tisha Campbell is safe and sound. Toni D Rivera, the woman she mentioned in her comments, is the founder of The ROSE Organization. According to their Instagram account, the organization provides awareness and training to help people avoid these type of situations. Rivera responded to Campbell’s video, saying, “Yes, sis, they was about to get you.. just made six rescues this week, and they ALL gave the same description…Please be safe🙏🏾🙏🏾”
