Donna Simpson is making headlines the world over as she expresses her death wish. She wants to eat her way to 1,000 pounds and she wants you to watch her online — for a fee — as she kills herself in public.
My initial response to Donna’s story is that she wants you to pay to
watch her pretend suicide-by-eating online just so she can feed her
family and feed her face. She reportedly spends $800.00USD a week on
food alone — but what if something more nefarious is afoot?
Donna is a mere 600 pounds right now and she wants notoriety and fame all the way to her
supposed death wish goal of 1,000 pounds and that is not average thinking and must not be abided.
If Donna’s death wish is real and not joking on us — her story is reprehensible.
Why does she want the spotlight for her inevitable and early demise?
If she were eating arsenic or slashing her wrists, or pointing a loaded gun against her temple — instead of inhaling fast food — we would forcibly hospitalize her and, for her own good, we would make certain she was able to fight her mental illness.
Should we take people like Donna Simpson off the street and place them into protective custody so Donna-wannabes cannot continue to blatantly harm themselves while providing a poor example for their children?
Can an unhealthy mother be legally declared unfit because of her obesity and her refusal to want to lose weight?
