Many stars are outraged on social networks about the fate of Cyntoia Brown. In 2004, the 16-year-old girl killed the 43-year-old man who had bought her into a sex slave and was sentenced to life imprisonment. The girl has since been behind bars, as recalled by The Cut , and will only be able to apply for parole for the first time in 51 years. At trial, the judge had considered that if she had killed Johnny Allen, it was to steal him.

did we somehow change the definition of #JUSTICE along the way?? cause….. Something is horribly wrong when the system enables these rapists and the victim is thrown away for life! To each of you responsible for this child’s sentence I hope to God you don’t have children, because this could be your daughter being punished for punishing already! #FREECYNTOIABROWN #HowManyMore
“Have we changed the definition of the word #JUSTICE at any time? She wrote.
For his part, Kim Kardashian asked his lawyers to look into the case, “to see what can be done.”
The system has failed. It’s heart breaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what’s right. I’ve called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown pic.twitter.com/73y26mLp7u
