Comedienne and radio personality Nikki Crosby said despite her love for Trinidad and Tobago the country does not love her. 

This after she got caught in a protest on the Churchill Roosevelt Highway in the vicinity of Beetham Gardens.

In an emotional video posted to Facebook, Crosby recounted her horrifying experience when her car was pelted with stones. 

Crosby was driving along the highway during the protest on Thursday morning. 

The residents blocked the highway with debris and were reportedly pelting vehicles with stones.

Crosby said she was driving her Hilux vehicle around 11 am when she was confronted by two men throwing stones at her car. She said they kept missing and stopped when they ran out of stones. It was then she was able to drive away. 

"I thought I was in Afghanistan or one of them countries, that not normal," she said, crediting the prayer she said before leaving home for her protection.

In July, Crosby and her husband Gerry Clarke were among a group of people robbed at gunpoint by masked bandits at a store in Diego Martin.

She said in the video that she has been depressed since the robbery. 

Crosby told Loop that while she has considered migrating she could never leave T&T.
