All of it coming to light after a tip from Hackney’s older biological daughter ABC7 reports.
Now, Hackney is calling her jail cell her new home after she is charged with child abuse.
According to law enforcement officials, Hackney’s children claim they were physically abused and pepper-sprayed if they refused to participate in the YouTube videos.
When officers arrive, they said the kids told them they had not had food or water in days.
The kids also told police Hackney would lock them in closets for days with no bathroom or food. They said their adopted mother would make them take ice baths, beat them with objects, and physically abuse their genitals.
The kids said they were pulled from school to act in videos.
Hackney’s older biological sons were in the videos too. They’re now with their mother behind bars for failing to report the abuse.
A source close to investigation said Department of Children Services has been called to the home more than five times. They now have custody of her seven adopted kids.
Hackney denies that.
