An influential Australian has revealed harrowing details of his detention by the US government ahead of his deportation. Earlier this week, Instagram influencer and Only F star Mikaela Testa said she was arrested on arrival in the US after flying 20 hours from Perth to Los Angeles via Sydney.The 23-year-old was denied entry to the US and has since returned to Australia, where she has now revealed harrowing details of the 30 hours she spent in a “cell”.
“I’ve just been locked up in a cell by the US government for almost two days,” a tearful Mikaela told her TikTok followers. “Basically, if you set foot on their land, they own you and everything,” she said. “They asked everyone I knew in Los Angeles and their business. What do you do with your money every day.
“I was in this room for hours and I did it. If it meant getting me to America, I would do anything.” Mikaela went on to say that guards became suspicious of what she was doing on Only F, a subscription-based adult content creation site.
“They wanted to know if I’d ever worked with anyone in America,” she explained. “I said no ma’am and she said I lied to her face. She pulled out a twitter picture of me with some girls from America, in a country that wasn’t America.
“I said, ‘I thought you were referring to America.’ At that point, I was sent to another room where people who weren’t there for good things were being held.” She claimed the room she was sent to was like a “war movie” and they had “a box of tampons, a kettle and cups of instant noodles”. “I started breaking down, I was thoroughly frisked, I had to take off everything,” she said.
