A Mexican Mayor Berated A Little Girl About Her Weight In Front Of Her Peers

Poor body confidence is an issue that afflicts 40% of U.S. girls who are as young as seven years old.

The knowledge that young girls are pressured to hate and alter their bodies at a young age is nothing new. You’ve heard this truth reported on by different digital content sites, on TV, magazines, through educators and more prominently: on the pages of your favorite celebrity Instagram pages. The origins of poor body confidence vary but more often or not they come from media, parents, spouses and often times machismo.

This truth is sad enough in itself but hurts all the more when we’re forced to see the withering of a young girl’s self-esteem on video. Particularly when the source of such pain comes from a man of influence and power.

Ahome, Sinaloa mayor Manuel Guillermo Chapman Moreno recently caught attention after a video of him doling out unsolicited criticism about a little girl’s weight went viral.

During a recent visit to Centro de Educación Inicial Indígena, the mayor attempted to project concern and empathy for the health of the children in the area.

While on camera and in front of the girl’s classmates and teachers, Chapman questioned the girl about her diet after she innocently commented that she enjoyed eating chicken and eggs.

Without ever asking whether the school in the district, which he oversees, offers healthy foods or space for outdoor activities, he began his interrogation.

“Sweets?” he asked her. “You like to eat sweets?” When the girl nodded Chapman turned to the teacher and asked, “What is the problem with this girl? This girl is frighteningly obese. Why?”

In response, the little girl’s teacher says “Because the mother gives what the girl asks and at any time.” Clearly uncomfortable the little girl visibly withers into herself before rushing away.

Users online were quick to criticize Chapman for his comments.


“What a dumb guy” one user wrote in response.

Many ridiculed him for his flip way of handling the situation.

“Obesity can be controlled with proper feeding, human stupidity has no cure,” another wrote.

Others pointed out how counterintuitive his comments were.

“But what a character as ignorant as this is going to be expressed about a girl, hurting her self-esteem, she doesn’t even have any idea how to deal with those health issues!”

Others highlighted how inappropriate his comments were given the setting.

“How can they allow them to expose a girl or child? And the other mitoteras also that hell care if their parents aware that they should talk to them in private and not expose the poor creature to be the mockery of all.”

When she turns she shows off her side profile and lets out her stomach. And tbh we love the natural curves!

Of course, it didn’t take long for fans to flock to the comments and gas up the rapper.

“Same here sis!!! ,” Antonique Smith the actress from “Notorious” wrote in the captions. “Thank you for the honesty!” “If this ain’t da realest shii,” sevyn added to the comments.

A Woman Was Attacked By A Dog As Child– Now She Has Hair Growing Out of Her Cheek

E!

Over the course of its five-season run, fans of the E! series “Botched” have seen it all. The series follows doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif remedy the disasters at the hands of extreme plastic surgeries. Together the two doctors have the most bizarre scenarios in plastic surgery from a woman whose breasts morphed in a “uni-boob” after a botched job, to a woman whose face was filled with cement. Once, a patient showed up to the doctors with the desire to be transformed into an alien-look alike. In the most recent episode of the series, the doctors have their work cut out for them when a woman whose surgery left her with pubic hair sprouting from her face came on the show to ask for help. 

Crystal Coombs appeared on the show to have a surgery that she’d had at age 9 fixed for the good of her self-esteem.

Not too many years ago, a serious dog bite to the face would undoubtedly lead to extreme disfigurement for the rest of a person’s life. Today, doctors have been able to improve their techniques for patching up the results of these attacks all with the help of plastic surgery. For Coombs, who had been attacked and bitten by a dog decades ago when she was 9 years old, this proved to be very true. 

“When I was 9 years old, my grandfather was holding the dog, and I was actually pretty terrified of the pitbull,” Coombs told the doctors in the episode. “All I remember is black.”

“Full attack mode?” Dubrow asks her while Nassif asked, “So he bit out the chunk of tissue?”

“Clean,” Coombs replied. “Then went to the emergency room, and there the doctors suggested that we wait until we see a plastic surgeon.” 

At the time, Coombs had been left with a gaping wound which she told the doctors of “Botched” had been “open for a while. Like how the outside of Freddie Kruger’s face looks, with the burn? That’s what the inside looked like.” Fortunately, after some time, Coombs saw a plastic surgeon who was able to create a skin graft for her. With a complex procedure, he took skin from her groin and created the graft. Sadly, when puberty began for Coombs, so did another painful aspect of her scarring. 

“So you were getting pubic hair on your face?” Nassif asks her in the episode.

The answer? Yes. Yes, she did.

Coombs began to grow pubic hair on her face. 

“Yes. Literal pubic hair. I don’t believe that the doctor mentioned I would grow pubic hair out of my patch,” she explained while speaking to the doctors. “I don’t remember that.” Fortunately, Coombs seemed to have a bit of sense of humor about the growth of hair despite the fact that it was sprouting from her cheek.

Nassif later explained on the show that Coombs, while suffering from an odd predicament was lucky. “Crystal is very lucky that the emergency room physicians didn’t just try to stitch up that big gash and opening in her cheek because the ER doctor does not have the same skill set as a plastic surgeon,” Nassif explained. “If they did, she would’ve been like this–.” Nassif tugged his eye down to show what it might have looked like for her. 

Speaking to the doctors about the hair growing from her akee, Coombs explained that she had been fine with the growth before her daughter was born.

Coombs told the doctors that the odd graft hadn’t really affected her life or self-esteem until she became a mother. “Now since having my daughter, I really started to get conscious of it,” Coombs, who is the mother of a 6 months old, explained. “I’m worried about the kids that she’ll go to school with… “After having my daughter, I am very nervous about how other kids will treat her because of how I look. I don’t want her to be teased.” 

Coombs asked the doctor if they could help her with reconstructive surgery that would be as small and minimal as possible.

Dubrow later explained that the surgery needed to reconstruct Coomb’s face is “actually very deceptively complicated” because “that skin graft is very close to critical anatomical structures like the nose, the cheeks, and the eye, that if altered even a little bit can change the entire shape of the face and look very deformed.”

Eventually, the doctors performed the surgery for Coombs and the transformation was quite remarkable. 

Speaking about her end results, Coombs explained “Before, I was way too self-conscious,” Crystal recalled. “And now, I’m no longer worried about Sana having to go through 21 questions about what’s on my face. I’m excited, I feel beautiful…it’s like a closed chapter.”
