Autumn Allen, a rising star in Cambodia, has not seen her mother since she was 6 years old.

The 13-year-old girl thought she would finally be reunited with her long-lost mom after revealing her story on the local talk show Penh Chet Ort (Like It or Not).

However, her dream to reconnect with her mom in the show didn’t happen. Apparently, the hosts of the talk show were pulling a prank on the clueless girl.

Allen thought her estranged mother would emerge from backstage, but Choup Rolin, a cross-dressing comedian, came out instead.

The producers of the show were slammed for the insensitive stunt they pulled on the young girl. Since then, the network has issued an apology to Allen.

Despite the controversy, Allen is looking forward to reunite with her mother someday.

This is Autumn Allen, an American singer based in Cambodia. She was invited to guest in Penh Chet Ort (Like It Or Not) for a Mother’s day episode.
