Over the weekend, a 34 year old Maryland woman by the name of Kelly Mayhew died in a Queens, NY basement after receiving fatal butt injections from a phony surgeon. As sad as this story is, I have something I need to say.
We live in a sick world. Mayhew wasn’t alone when she walked into that basement Saturday evening. She brought someone along for moral support: Her MOTHER. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but my mom isn’t going to fill her Volvo up with Premium gas and drive several hours up to Queens to meet a shady “surgeon” for some butt injections.
Is this what we’re doing in 2015? The quest to have a bigger butt has really gotten out of control. Women are going to extreme measures to look like the women that are forced down our throats on a daily basis, and the results are often deadly.
Of course, there are countless others. Mayhew was an employee at the popular TV network BET, and Tuesday, the company made this statement: “We are saddened by the death of our colleague and friend Kelly Mayhew. Our heart goes out to her family and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss.”
According to Gothamist:
The owner of the building, Joan Doyle, told DNAInfo that she had been letting a former tenant stay in the basement for free, since the woman was struggling to pay her rent. Soon after, she started noticing lots of women going to and from her basement. “Some of [the women] had weird butts,” she said. “I knew something was going on but I couldn’t put my finger on it.” According to Doyle, the basement tenant was at work when Mayhew died.
Guys here are 3 pieces of advice:
1. Don’t go to a house (particularly a basement) to get butt injections, or any other surgeries.
2. If you DO decide to get surgery. Do your RESEARCH. You should be well aware if the person who is doing “surgery” is not in fact a SURGEON
3. I’m not going to say “just love yourself” because that’s cliche. I definitely want you to love yourselves, but I know that’s not really a solution when something bothers you to the point that you want plastic surgery. But I WILL say, weigh the pros and cons. Really think this thing out. If you think you absolutely CANNOT live life without a bigger butt, then I encourage you to seek a psychological evaluation before going through with the procedure. Seriously. Have you seen Botched?
If that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will!
