Bhad Bhabie is fuming mad at Dr. Phil for his inaction and refusal to apologize and take accountability after her recent allegations against a teen boarding ranch that his show is connected to. The 18-year-old rose to Internet fame in 2016 after her appearance on Dr. Phil’s show helped coin a viral catchphrase and ultimately secure her a record deal as well as more years of fame. Her time spent at the teen boarding ranch has seemed to cause her much trauma and she is no longer remaining silent.
Bhad Bhabie, real name Danielle Bregoli, released a video filled with allegations against the Turn-About Ranch—located in a south-central rural Utah town called Escalante. Partnering with Breaking Code Silence, a movement that raises awareness about problems in the troubled-teen industry, she filled the recent video with damning claims against the establishment, which can be viewed below.
This is not the first time that massive allegations have plagued Turn-About Ranch, in 2012 they faced a lawsuit for alleged torture against a 17-year-old girl, as reported by The Washington Post. As recent as February, another lawsuit had been filed against the ranch concerning a woman by the name of Hannah Archuleta, who is being represented by Gloria Allred.
Dr. Phil recently gave an interview in which he seemingly distances himself from Bregoli’s damning accusations. “She went to Turn-About four or five years ago, and she had a bad experience. Obviously, I would hate that, and we’d be sorry about that,” he said in an interview with Ashleigh Banfield last month. “We’re not involved in that, we don’t have any feedback from them, so whatever happens once they’re there, that’s between them and the facility.”

Hearing Dr. Phil’s response angered Bregoli, who released another video detailing more information and claims that he is lying. “Are you [expletive] nuts?” she passionately said. “Are you actually [expletive] nuts? I’m really trying to keep my composure. These two are really not making it easy.”
The rapper/social media personality spoke directly to his claims that he had no knowledge of the happenings with whom they have sent to the facility. “My mother signed a consent of release of information to send progress reports directly from Turn-About to the Dr. Phil show. So when you say you don’t have any feedback from them, that is not true!”
She added, “So when you say that you don’t have any feedback from them, that is not true! So if you’re saying you don’t have any feedback, maybe you should be getting feedback about these places before you’re just sending multiple people’s kids here. You’re just trying to save you’re a**. That’s all you’re trying to do is save you’re a**. But there’s too many stories and there’s too many people behind this that you can’t save you’re a** anymore.”
