17-year-old Angelica Salek has said she is “scared to go home” after her 33-year old ex-boyfriend Ray Diaz, an internet celebrity, was released bail on Saturday.
Salek posted a video, tweeted by Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem, just an hour after the news that Diaz was released from jail on a $50,000 bond.
Keemstar had previously taken up the case by interviewing Angelica, where she revealed the truth about the relationship and provided a clip of a recording showing an example of the alleged abuse.
The video shows a grief-stricken Salek crying and explaining that she is scared to go home.

Stay with some friends and family members for now. If you know some police or military friends nearby, let them know your situation.— Angery Purple Man (@AngeryPurple) July 14, 2019
