Video: Pageant Mom Who Gives 8 Year Old Botox Defends Her Actions
Posted on May 15, 2011Good Morning America interviewed eight year old Britney Campbell and her mother Kerry of San Francisco. Britney competes in child beauty pageants and her mother administers Botox to Britney to "get rid of wrinkles" and waxes her legs. There are so many things wrong with this, it's hard to know where to begin. The mother Kerry is absolutely delusional. There are no wrinkles on an eight year old child's face. Only a doctor should administer Botox. One needle in the wrong place and she could damage an eye or paralzye half her face. Kerry wouldn't say where she gets the Botox, but if she's buying it off the Internet, it may not be Botox at all.
Britney said the Botox hurts saying, "It hurt sometimes, but I get used to it." She said about having her legs waxed, "It was super, super hard to deal with that...I just don't think it's ladylike to have hair on your legs." Kerry says all the little girls in the pageant world do this, which wouldn't actually surprise us given the insanity that goes on during Toddlers and Tiaras. But that doesn't make it right. Take a look:
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Human Services Agency in San Francisco was flooded with irate calls from parents after this segment aired. Kerry Campbell is now being investigated by HSA.
