A Cambodian game show made this 13-year-old American girl cry
There’s nothing remotely funny about this ‘prank.’
Allen appeared on the country’s Penh Chet Ort television variety show to sing on a special Mothers’ Day episode. The hosts say that her mother is also on the show to be reunited with her, which makes Allen emotional. Allen reveals that seeing her mother would be a dream come true, as she hasn’t had any contact with her since she was six years old.
The big reveal happens, and it’s not Allen’s mother, but famous Thai cross-dressing comedian Chuop Rolin.
“What are you thinking, did you think it was real?” the hosts asked Allen.
“I don’t know,” she said.
Here’s the full clip of this emotional horror show:
People lashed out at the offending television network, MyTV, on social media.
