Another Woman Has Died After Illegal Butt Injections

Is it really that serious? To risk your life for a bigger butt from some back-alley injection peddler? I’m going to need women to get some commonsense.

Daysha Phillips, a 22-year-old from St. Louis, died after receiving illegal butt injections near Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. Phillips was a dancer at Pink Slip exotic club in Brooklyn, Ill and wanted a curvier figure. But it ultimately cost her, her life.

Phillips’ death on July 30 may have ties to a Dallas murder case involving Denise “Wee Wee” Ross, who is accused of fatally injecting the buttocks of a woman in a Deep Ellum salon in February, according to police.

Phillips and three other women went to the Drury Inn Airport hotel in Edmundson, Mo., according to Phillips’ aunt, Marie Cooper.

Meeting them in a room on the fifth floor, police believe, was a woman who injected Phillips and two other women with materials designed to enlarge the hips and buttocks areas as they lay on a massage table. The injector is believed to have traveled to St. Louis from Dallas, Phillips’ family said.

Police said they believe three female suspects were involved in Phillips’ death.

Soon after she was injected, Phillips was found “moaning and gasping for air, wide-eyed … like a rag doll,” said Cooper. She later died at a hospital.

    The fake booty meat trend needs to die like right now. Women are losing their lives trying to impress men and women who don’t even care about them. Why??? You wouldn’t get your tooth pulled in a hotel room so why get booty shots there?

    Black women, we are more than our asses. Much more. RIP to this young lady.

      Exactly Staci! Not all black women have big booties, coca cola bottle shaped, thick and curvy and that is okay!

        Binks, it used to be fine if a woman just took care of herself and was a decent respectable human being. SMH now we have to be living dolls.

      Right. Women getting nipped and tucked, contouring their faces, wearing fake hair, lashes and nails. Meanwhile the men ain’t going under the knife to get a bigger john, a better brain, or anything else.

    I will never understand the point of risking your life to alter your body. If you aren’t born with it, you don’t need it. However, we all have the right to do whatever we want with our bodies. But, you have to accept the consequences that come along with it. It’s sad that this woman lost her life over her choice to get that injection.

    This is such a sad story. First, I send prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Sister Daysha Philips. The injector should be caught, jailed, and convicted as illegal injections are morally wrong and evil. Another point is to be made too. There is a lot of hurt in many among our younger generation. Some young people feel that they need a bunch of surgeries to feel adequate or to view themselves as somebody (as a product of getting these procedures). Those who think like that need to know that they are somebody irrespective of how many surgeries that they receive (or if they had no surgeries at all). We must fight against a materialistic mindset that has ruined the lives of so many human beings. The Knowledge of Self and human dignity are important concepts that we believe in. Beauty is not defined by injections. Beauty is defined by compassion, by helping others, and beauty is inward too. So, anyone seeking any surgery should get experts (with certifications) to do it. Risky, dangerous, and illegal surgeries aren’t worth it. There should be a major cracking down on those who perform illegal injections of this nature. You feel for the family of Daysha. They are going through a momentous amount of heartache and pain.

    RIP Daysha Philips.

    What a senseless way to die and a waste of a young life. I feel so sorry and angry at Daysha Phillips because she did not have to die the way it was described. First, if you are going to get plastic surgery of any kind, PLEASE see a professional doctor and do your research. There is no reason in this day and age to go the illegal route. And there is no excuse of “well, I can’t afford a real doctor” because most doctors have payment plans or options to finance your plastic surgery if that is what you CHOOSE to do. Secondly, I agree with those who said this trend needs to stop of the over inflated booty. I am tired of women risking their lives for a booty that 9 times out of 10 looks fake. I can’t wait for a true body acceptance movement of loving your body/shape naturally will trend. Not every woman is curvy, tall, pear shaped, have hips, full lips, small waist, hourglass shaped, modelesque, etc. and you know what that is OKAY. Rock and love YOUR body. This society and generation is so brainwashed and fixated on looking a “certain” type of way for Instagram, Tumblr, etc. that many are basically looking like clones of one another. May Daysha Phillips rest in peace and hopefully her death is a lesson to many who is thinking about doing the same thing.

    This will not stop. These deaths I’m afraid do not deter woman from getting injected withchemicals. They have the mentality that it won’t happen to them and hyod on all the likes they can get on instagram. People need to start calling out the people who really glorify this trend. It’s a shame this is just another vacuous topic that pits woman apart and makes us have low self esteem as we don’t fit into a systematic ideal of beauty. I’m so over it. Women stop coping for this trash!

      Corset use is on the rise, too. I don’t know, sometimes.

        It is stupid. I don’t want to blame black men but they have this ideal shape they keep glorifying our women with. I have been friends with men who turn down females because they do not have an ass or body shape of what they see ion music videos. If an ass is so important but not her intelligence then you sir are no gentleman. Its even got to the point I’ve seen white males turn down black females as they wont a video vixen not a normal women who has not brought her body. I don’t see the need to want or aspire to have an ass, just to get some instagram likes or to get male attention. I see no other reason why you would go this far in the first place if it was for yourself. It’s like build-a-thot workshop everywhere you look. Its disgusting and degrading.

          Completely. I saw the X-ray of a woman who corset trained a few months ago and her liver was rippled as a result. She was asked if she would at least ease up on it and her response was that of a person who is trying to look like she would seriously think about it but you know she won’t stop. This is a black woman, too. Despair. Do some Pilates instead, soldier.

            It is such a shame just because they want some notoriety. If they spent less time on constructing their bodies and instead using that money and time to educate their minds they will soon realize their dating pool will open up a lot of suitable men who love their woman for their minds not their thighs.

    This had got to stop. All of this to get ‘likes’ on Instagram and Facebook? Ladies self love is the best love. And truth be told the famous women with the round big exaggerated butts have gotten shots and or surgery please do not be mislead by photo-shop.
