Kelsie Skillen, 18, was brutally beaten by her boyfriend James McCourt, 19, in their apartment. After his court date landed him in jail, Kelsie has been spreading her story in the hopes that nobody else should have to suffer like she did.

She went on to say that he was mostly hitting her in the face. She posted the pictures on the day of his last court date, celebrating that he was found guilty for “everything he done to me,” but that she was left with scarring. She wanted everyone to consider what her ex was really like, because she noticed that he was still being defended on social media.
“I would never be able to forgive myself if I didn’t tell epople about this and another poor girl ended up in my situation.”
She then thanked everyone for their support, saying that it “means a lot.” Almost immediately her post was shared over 1,400 times.
Last year, a television show in Morocco was under fire because one of their morning show segments gave women tips on how to use makeup to cover facial bruises and other signs of domestic abuse.
