There is a graphic and disturbing video involving 17-year-old Ezzie Johnson and 19-year-old Haleigh “Alexis” Hudson that originated on Facebook Live. Now that Facebook Live video, which was streamed live on Tuesday evening, has gotten Ezzie and Alexis in trouble and has the duo facing charges ranging from sexual assault to felony kidnapping and more. As reported by Heavy, a publication that posted the graphic and disturbing Facebook Live video, 17-year-old Ezzie faces charges as an adult and is being held on $200,000 bail. Hudson turned herself in and is being held on $400,000 bail at the county jail.
According to Gulfport Police in the below Facebook video of the authorities’ press conference, Johnson is the person who recorded the Facebook Live video. The original Facebook Live video received 48,000 views and was shared 1,100 times, according to police, before it was removed. The graphic video may have been removed from Facebook by Ezzie, but the video was recorded on another smartphone. Tiffany Hailey shared the video to her Facebook page.
Authorities state that the victim was a 23-year-old woman. Hudson reportedly stood over the victim as she sat on the couch and was asked if she was ready to begin fighting. Alexis then reportedly began dragging the victim off of the couch.
Tiffany wrote on Facebook that Hailey was asked by the victim to record the Facebook video and to share it on Facebook to use as evidence against her alleged assailants, Ezzie and Alexis.
Other than the Facebook Live video, Hailey wrote that the victim had no evidence against Ezzie and Alexis, with Tiffany claiming the police told the victim that there was nothing they could do because there was alcohol involved. However, Tiffany wrote that a Gulf Port police officer called the victim back and received more information about the assault.

Heavy noted that they edited the footage to remove the nudity shown at the beginning of the graphic video. However, the video is 15 minutes long, according to the publication, and starts with the victim on the ground, kneeling and allegedly being asked to perform fellatio while a woman’s voice calls the victim a “s***.”
