Former Disney channel star Christie Carlson Romano is taking aim at child abusers in Hollywood — and people online are so here for it. Teasing a brand new episode of her podcast The Vulnerable Podcast, the Even Stevens actress vowed to expose them all.
Romano regularly gets candid and revisits her time on the Disney channel on her TikTok page @christycarlsonromano — but this was a little different than her usual content.
"People think I'm super nice," she wrote in the video's text overlay. "But I'm tired of hearing these stories about child abuse in Hollywood. Lives were ruined. What's a former child actor with two daughters and an Ivy League degree to do?" she added."Watch me," she wrote.
"Might turn some heads tomorrow," she wrote in the caption.
Whew! Okay, we need the tea. And with over 200,000 views we weren't the only ones who wanted to hear the truth. "SHARE THE TRUTH we stand with you," wrote @jason_zerkle in the comments section. "I can see the pain in your eyes. Growing up is realizing none of the childhood stars I loved, were actually crazy. They were just robbed of their innocence," @_rachhh2 explained. "Girl yes! Hollywood abusers will go to any length to keep things quiet, so please stay safe!" @jedimom513 chimed in. And some people referenced another one of Romano's most famous roles: "KIM POSSIBLE HAS ENTERED THE CHAT!! GET EM!!!" @thatcoacherica exclaimed.
This wasn't the first time that Romano vowed to do something about the problem on her page. In a video from September 14, she again alluded to wanting to help expose abusers.
Here's hoping she brings light to this heartbreaking subject.
