'Love & Hip Hop: Miami' Star Jessie Woo Opens Up About Her Rape

By

Last week's episode of Love & Hip Hop: Miami was powerful and emotional, thanks to the brave testimony of Jessie Woo about her rape. She opened up to rapper Trina about her assault at an industry party and the aftermath she's suffered emotionally and professionally since.

Trina later took her to a talk with #MeToo founder and activist Tarana Burke, where Jessie again became overcome with grief over her trauma.

Many fans were moved and angered by Jessie's experience, which is unfortunately all too familiar to many women, particularly women of color, in the music industry. "I hope Jesse [sic] Woo tell who rape her and her friend.. Make the world aware of the snakes in the music Industry that rape women," wrote one viewer on Twitter.

Another wrote, "I wonder who assault Jessie Woo so I can mute his music as well," referring to the #MuteRKelly hashtag.
