By: Chong Kim
Since legal action is pending, Kim and her team will not at this time address the defamatory attacks and the possible motivations for these unwarranted attacks by the organization (Breaking Out); its founder, James Barnes; and other associated individuals. Chong Kim firmly denies the allegations and knows that the real truth will prevail.
She is working with pro bono legal counsel and a team of related professionals to clear her name so she can continue to advocate for victim's rights and cyber-bulling. As a dedicated human and civil rights advocate, she wants to keep others from blaming the victims of these unspeakable horrors.
