I remember a time when WE (black women) were admired for our natural shapes... no injections needed. Most black women are naturally thick from the waist down and don't need any extra help in the butt department...
Some where along the way, our natural shape lost it's appeal, fast forward to 2012, men are attracted to the "circus booty" that looks completely unnatural like 2 hard basketballs sitting on a woman's back.
Why men find this unnatural look appealing is confusing to me... Now, unfortunately... not just video vixens, strippers and hood models go for this look, the regular woman is feeling pressure to get it, believing that her own natural plum shape isn't good enough these women are flocking to the illegal butt injectors and making them rich!
The butt injection trend is soooo HUGE in the Black community, the demand is so high that unlicensed butt injectors are popping up every where. This has become VERY dangerous for the women who are crazy enough to put their life in the hands of someone giving butt shots in their kitchen.
NBC reports.... A popular unlicensed New York butt injection provider Whalesca Castillo has been sentenced to 1 year in jail for illegally running a butt shot factory in her house.
Castillo was arrested for continuing to operate her “underground augmentation factory” after being busted in 2011. Police serving a search warrant on Castillo’s Bronx home found empty bottles of Columbian silicone, used needles, bloody gauze, and “dozens” of tubes of superglue to seal injection sites to prevent leaking silicone.
Castillo was also ordered to forfeit $100,000 in ill-gotten profits from her illegal enterprise. There was no shortage of costumers for Castillo’s expertise. Strip clubs that cater to so-called “ballers” with unlimited drug profits has created a high demand for insecure women who want grossly unnatural butts like Nicki Minaj or Kim Kardashian.
Authorities say she imported liquid silicone from the Dominican Republic and gave injections to women for buttocks enhancement. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara says Castillo's "underground augmentation factory" endangered lives.
The prosecutor says Castillo remained open for business even after pleading guilty.
