Bhad Bhabie has elaborated on her recent claims against the ranch for troubled teens that Dr. Phil’s team sent her to following her infamous appearance on his show in 2016.
In a new YouTube video in collaboration with social justice movement Breaking Code Silence, the now-17-year-old (who turns 18 later this month) discussed at length the abuse she allegedly endured during her stay at Turn-About Ranch in Escalante, Utah. Demanding an apology from Dr. Phil and warning of more to come, Bhad Bhabie (born Danielle Bregoli) also spoke up for other teens like Hannah Archuleta, whose allegations of abuse earlier this month were what prompted Bregoli to speak out initially.
“Now, when I seen the punishments [Archuleta] was given, I knew like okay yeah, I really have to say something,” Bregoli says in the video. “I really have to have her back on this ’cause I truly believe that they did that. So, Dr. Phil, I’m going to give you from now to April 5 to issue an apology – not only to me, but to Hannah, and any other child that you sent to Turn-About or any other program like this. And if you don’t, I’m gonna handle things my way.”

The “Gucci Flip Flops” rapper continued to speak on the abuse she suffered during her stay, which included being deprived of sleep, not being fed proper meals and being subjected to freezing temperatures.
“Even if you don’t know the rules, if you fuck up you’re still in trouble,” Bhad Bhabie explained. “There’s not no ‘I didn’t know.’ You’re in deep shit… You’d walk in the arena for hours on end. You sit outside in the cold on the floor. You have to pick up piles in a wheel-barrel of horse shit and they want big piles. So if you have to do 25 piles, you’re doing 25 wheel barrels.”
