I Like Big Butts and I Cannot Lie: Butt Injections Cause A Woman’s Death

Big Butts are the new sexy and women are going to extreme lengths to achieve this look. “Last year, a staggering 10,000 buttock augmentation procedures were performed in the United States, which is up 16 percent from 2012,” according to Chanel Park, writer for the Huffington Post. A woman lost her life due to society’s new obsession with big butts this past march. 44 year-old Vinnie Lysander Taylor was charged with murder for giving a woman butt injections that eventually led to her death.


Taylor was charged with the misuse of medical equipment. “Taylor traveled the country injecting women with silicone that he said would give them larger buttocks,” according to Taylor’s indictment. He used food grade silicone for the procedure which is typically used to make molds to use for food that begin as liquids and solidify. Although the substance is nontoxic for human consumption, it hinders a different affect once injected into the body. “Taylor stored the liquid silicone in plastic bottles that were not labeled nor approved by federal authorities for that purpose. Therefore, the liquid silicone was adulterated and misbranded,” according to federal authorities.


Taylor developed branches of a clothing store named Shuga K’s. He purchased locations in Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. He ordered the silicone from Clearco Products, a Pennsylvania company using the name of his franchise. “Clearco mailed him gallon jugs of the stuff about 180 times, from 2008 to 2014,” said Julie Zauzmer, writer for The Washington Post, Taylor injected seven different women in 2013 and 2014 and a woman injected in a hotel in Capitol Heights, died after the procedure.


“The person listed as his defense attorney in court records did not respond to a request for comment on Wednesday,” said Zauzmer. Taylor is being held in Maryland on state charges. He is facing sentencing for second-degree murder and a maximum sentence of three years in prison for each of nine counts of receipt of a misbranded and adulterated device for delivery for pay with intent to defraud or mislead.
