Autumn Allen is the 13-year-old aspiring singer who was pranked on a Cambodia TV show called Penh Chet Ort (Like It or Not). On the show’s Mother’s Day episode, the producers promised Allen that her “dream to meet her mother would come true.” Allen said during the broadcast that when her father took her to Cambodia, her mother stayed in the US.
But when they brought out Allen’s “mother” is was the show’s cross-dressing comedian Chuop Rolin. The TV network later sent Allen an official letter of apology which she shared on Facebook following the public outcry. According to People, “Allen said that she has tried to contact her mother several times since moving to Cambodia, but her attempts were unsuccessful.”
