We all remember Hosea Chanchez as Malik Wright from the hit scripted series “The Game.” Although he has brought us many laughs throughout the years, on Monday, he took to social media to open up about a very serious matter.
Hosea took to Instagram to speak about the topic of molestation, and he revealed to his followers that he was molested by his friend’s father when he was 14-years-old. He admitted it was a hard topic for him to talk about and talked about intentionally forgetting about the matter to prevent himself from being judged.
In his post, he mentioned that his childhood friend’s father preyed on the fact that he came from a single mother home, and that his father was not in his life.
He also detailed how the predator would constantly ask him questions about his sexuality, not realizing it was to see his comfort level. Hosea said, “He was using a false hyper-masculinity as a way to sniff out my comfort level with sex and privacy.”
Hosea continued to detail the very moment when he was molested and said that he was threatened to have his life ruined because the man who sexually assaulted him described himself as very powerful, especially since he worked at a university.
He later explained his reason for coming clean about the unfortunate experience and said, “I’m choosing to come forward now in hopes that my TRUTH helps to free someone else from guilt and shame at the hands of a predator, rapist, pedophile.”
“I ask God to help me become the best me I can be and in the process allow my life to inspire, uplift and heal someone’s else’s pain and trauma,” he continued.
We definitely commend Hosea for opening up and being vulnerable about his truth. We are sending love and support during this time.
