Former Smallville actress Allison Mack, who will face court next week for sex trafficking allegations, apparently used Twitter to try and recruit other celebrities—including Emma Watson—to join an alleged sex cult.
Business Insider uncovered tweets from Mack asking Watson to “chat” about a “unique human development & women’s movement” in 2016.
[email protected] I'm a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women's movement I think you'd dig. I'd love to chat if you're open.

[email protected] well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you're willing to chat

Watson, who is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador and launched a campaign for gender equality, didn’t respond.
Reports last week said Mack was arrested for alleged involvement in a group called NXIVM. The group’s leader, Keith Raniere, has been charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and conspiracy to commit forced labor. Mack was allegedly second in command and helped recruit women as sex “slaves.”
She also tweeted at pop singer Kelly Clarkson in 2013.
@kelly_clarkson I heard through the grapevine that you're a fan of Smallville. I'm a fan of yours as well! I'd love to chat sometime.
