Anytime there are “black market” offerings for any form of cosmetic surgery, nothing good can come of it. The latest craze to sweep our nation has been the widely popular butt injections; which offer women the fuller backside that genetics didn’t give them. Just as most cosmetic alterations, these injections cost an arm and a leg, which of course created a market of those who can’t necessarily afford the butt enhancements, but still desire a video vixen type physique.
ABC 24 News is reporting that 39-year-old Natasha Stewart was arrested in relation to the death of a Jackson, Mississippi woman who died after being injected with concrete during her butt injection procedure. Natasha is alleged to have referred the woman and several others to the “doctor” who performed the procedure and was arrested this past Thursday in relation to the woman’s death. It is reported that she is being charged with Fugitive from Justice Warrant for Homicide.
The YBF later identified Stewart as popular video vixen, Pebblez Da Model, who was widely known for her rather large backside, which many believed to be the product of injections. She is said to have appeared in multiple music videos including one for rapper Camron. According to ABC 24, Pebbelz was simply wanted for questioning by the Hind’s County Sheriff’s Department in relation to the woman’s death when she went on the run. She is currently being retained at the Shelby County Jail in Memphis, Tennessee, which is where authorities eventually caught up with her.
It is extremely unfortunate that women are losing their lives for such vain reasons. It is even more unfortunate that these so called “doctors” are capitalizing off of these women and putting their lives in danger.
Are we to blame as a culture for the value that we place on having a larger, more protruding backside?
