Three Breasts, Half a Million Page Views

Today’s BuzzFeed item by Alan White is just the beginning. By the end of the week, a Florida woman aiming to chest-butt instant, inane 21st century fame will have reportedly graced the sets of Inside Edition, Jimmy Kimmel Live and more.


There are, in the BuzzFeed article comments, the inevitable references to a similar trifecta in Total Recall. There is also, added in by White as an update, a much more serious point of view:

“This is a clear case of a patient who should not have had surgery performed on her,” said plastic surgeon Nilesh Sojitra. “Someone making this kind of request may have body dysmorphia disorder, or not have thought through the long-term consequences of such a surgery – she will now be scarred for life – and may have benefited from psychological evaluation rather than surgery. Additionally, the actions of the surgeon are unethical and they have acted in a way where no reasonable plastic surgeon would.”

Much of the pick-up coverage is, by contrast, rather congratulatory. There, the pseudonymous Floridian is being celebrated as a “Three-Boobed Badass,” the “AMAZING Triple-Breasted Woman” and so on. PLEASE let this turn out to be a Kimmel prank.

Update (September 24):
Kimmel’s involvement is still TBD. But per a TMZ report , the breasts touted by this South Florida woman are of the prosthetic variety.
