Unfortunately, this isn’t exactly a happy ending…
But 8-year-old Britney Campbell has been taken away from the mother who thought it was a good idea to pump her little face with Botox to win pagents.
A person with knowledge of the situation told ABC News that the girl, Britney, is doing well but did not offer more detail on the ongoing investigation into the girl’s mother, Kerry Campbell.
On Friday, the San Francisco Human Services Agency, launched an investigation into Campbell after she admitted to “Good Morning America” that she injected botox into her daughter’s face to help her in beauty pageants.
“It’s pretty unusual for a mom to be injecting an 8-year-old with botox and certainly is grounds for an investigation,” said Trent Rohrer of the San Francisco Human Services Agency on Friday.
Campbell and daughter Britney, appeared on “Good Morning America” last week defending the 8-year-old pageant contestant’s use of botox.
“I just, like, don’t, like, think wrinkles are nice on little girls,” Britney said.
Britney admitted it hurt to get the injections on her face, but said she was used to the pain.
The admission sparked an uproar online, in the medical community and by child advocates.
Campbell told ABC News that she does not believe she’s endangering Britney’s health and that her daughter asked for the injections. The mom is a part-time aesthetician and no stranger to botox herself, having done the treatment on her own face.
As happy as we are to hear that, for once, child services has moved quickly in a situation, we gotta wonder if this is the right thing. This little girl has been taken away from the only home she’s ever known.
Not that we’re condoning her lunatic mother, but do you think taking Britney away was the right decision?
