Attention sloring has reached new heights.
A Las Vegas man who suffers from a rare condition that made his scrotum swell to 100 pounds is basking in the fame that his giant organ has brought him.
In fact, the attention is so proving so intoxicating that Wesley Warren Jr turned down an offer to perform the $1 million corrective surgery for free because he would have had to give up the rights to his story. A second doctor has agreed to waive most of the cost for the procure, but Mr Warren still hasn’t taken him up on the offer.
The watermelon-size scrotum Mr Warren carries between his legs has landed him on the Howard Stern Show and the Comedy Central program Tosh.0 and made him a local celebrity in his hometown.
Firecracker Films, the company behind ‘Big Fat Gypsy Weddings’ has already signed a contract to make a documentary about him.
He also shot a segment for TLC.
When Mr Warren spoke with a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal in October, he became emotional as he described the pain and humiliation of carrying the deformed genitals. He said he suffered from deep bouts of depression and health complications.
So why the change of heart?
Fast-forward six months after Mr Warren’s story spread across the globe. He grinned as he told the same reporter about his appearance on Tosh.0.
‘It was fun going to Los Angeles in the big van they sent for me,’ he said.
Most disturbing, is his reaction to an offer he received from Dr Mehmet Oz, the celebrity physician whom Oprah made famous.
Mr Warren claims the Dr Oz Show said it would pay for the entire surgery at a top-notch hospital. However, the show would keep exclusive rights to tell Mr Warren’s story.
He said he didn’t take the TV program up on its offer because Howard Stern wanted him on his show again.
So this fool wants to keep his disgusting growth just so he can be the center of attention???
The balls on this guy…SMFD
