Beauty Blogger Posts Heartbreaking Video To Her Rapist Father
Brie Lybrand calls herself the “New Orleans Beauty Guru.” She has a pink, peppy blog where she talks about her background in “the beautiful world of southern pageantry,” an IMDb page complete with smiling headshots from her acting days, and a YouTube channel of makeup reviews and clothing hauls that boasts over 8,000 subscribers.
One of Lybrand’s most recent, however, is about her father — a man named Steven Bresler — who she describes as her molester, rapist, and torturer from the ages of four to 13.
In the clip, the usually-bubbly blond launches into a harrowing, truly upsetting story of abuse followed by a visual catalog of her arsenal of weapons, which she keeps loaded, “just in case you ever come back.” She then talks about how, despite her father’s horrific treatment of his family, she and her brother have grown into functional, successful adults. Brie then signs off on a courageous note: “I hope you’re watching this video, Dad, and I hope you see what a good person I’ve turned out to be.”
