VICE Documentary Takes On Illegal Butt Injections…A Must See!!!
VICE, a global youth media group known for their documentaries and hit HBO show of the same name, has a new topic its exploring, Buttloads of Pain. VICE is investigating illegal butt injections– underground, and the insane need for women to pump poison into their buttocks to save money in order to enhance their figures.

Word of mouth is how this illegal practice is spread. Now, we’re seeing more and more medical cases like the one pictured below.

The black market was the go-to place for these types of augmentations because it was considerably cheaper.
Check out a preview of the documentary, and try not to judge, it’s a lot more to the history of illegal injections that goes way back to World War II. I don’t know what would possess someone to inject fix-a-flat into their butt, but apparently there are more people out there who would inject poison than one could imagine:
The full episode will air next week on VICE so look out for it.
