Controversial social media personality Brittany ‘Lovely Peaches’ Johnson has reportedly lost custody of her daughter following an official investigation from the FBI.

The 19-year-old internet personality has long been a controversial figure. Constant threats to TikTok star Charli D’Amelio threw Johnson into the spotlight in July. On the back of these worrying messages and posts, she was deemed an ‘unstable parental figure’ for her young daughter.

Johnson exploded on social media largely due to these threats, alongside troublesome videos involving her 8-month-old baby, Cora. In these videos, Johnson laughed off vile behavior and joked about harmful activities involving the child.

Cora was taken away due to these issues, however, Johnson was seen with the baby once again on July 26. Just days later, following viral outcries from people on social media, an official FBI investigation was launched.

On August 6 it was reported by Children’s Riot that Cora had been “rescued” and “will never be returned” to her biological mother.

“Cora was back with her mother, and has been taken away from her as of this morning,” according to The Salvation Foundation. “As of now, she is safe, she is no longer with her mother.”

This foundation also stated that they’re working on erasing Johnson’s social media presence. Her Instagram account with over a million followers has already been removed from the internet, following swiftly in the aftermath of a platform ban on TikTok as well.

“The FBI has ensured that Peaches will no longer have access to hurting Cora or any other children,” Candle In A Dark Room claims. “She is being prosecuted and will pay for what she has done.”

An online petition to launch an investigation started over two years ago, which has amassed over 170,000 signatures in that time. This social media movement has unquestionably played a major part in bringing the situation to light.

Holy shit guys, we freakin did it!!!! ?? I just received some phone calls, text messages and confirmation from @childrensriot that baby Cora has been rescued and is safe from lovely peaches! @thesalvationfoundation also confirmed this information. The FBI has ensured that Peaches will no longer have access to hurting Cora or any other children. She is being prosecuted and will pay for what she has done!! I seriously cannot think everyone enough! I can’t believe because of all of us that have been fighting and using our voice & platforms for Cora, she’s now safe!! This could not have happened without all of you, so I seriously cannot thank you enough! This includes all influencers like @kiborman & others with large and small platforms, who shared the videos & info. Our voices are finally being heard. As a survivor I have felt alone in this fight for so long and I no longer feel that way. I’m honestly in shock & over the moon with everything I just found out! WE saved that little girl!! I don’t know why Peaches said she died cuz that is not true. Some are also saying Peaches didn’t have custody, but I’m trying to confirm that. With the recent pics & video, Peaches had access to cora somehow & she was in danger. Myself & CIADR will continue to fight for kids like Cora! I’m still looking into going to the court hearing if I can (cuz of COVID) to make sure she never has the opportunity to hurt another child! Her social media accounts have been deleted from TikTok and Instagram as well!! PLEASE, let’s not stop fighting for justice for children like Cora. We’re the only voice they have! The fight has only started so let’s keep fighting. I freakin love all of you and I’m SO grateful for the kind messages & support I have received! Thank you, thank you! Again, these results were cuz of ALL who have been sharing & talking about this. We will have the report with more info in about 10 days. Please keep following CIADR & supporting our purpose in helping survivors, cuz we can’t do this alone! It takes many organizations and groups of people to make a difference in the world! ?❤️???? SHARE this post so everyone knows!! I will update as updates come.
