UPDATE: Pageant Mom Gives 8-Year-Old Daughter BOTOX & WAXES Her Legs
UPDATE: A British mother who admitted on American TV that she gave her eight-year-old daughter Botox injections has had the child taken away by social workers.
Britney Campbell was removed from the care of her mother Kerry after the TV appearance boasting about the beauty treatment sparked outrage across the U.S.
Hundreds of complaints were received when she was featured on the Good Morning America show injecting her daughter with the anti-wrinkle treatment.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco authorities are investigating a mother who said on a national television program that she gives her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections.
Trent Rohrer with the city's Human Services Agency tells KGO-TV that officials need to sit down and talk with Kerry Campbell and her daughter, Britney.
Rohrer says it was unusual for a mother to inject a child with the anti-wrinkle shot.
Campbell appeared with her daughter Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America." She enrolls Britney in beauty pageants and says she got the idea to give her daughter Botox from other pageant mothers.
Rohrer says his office received numerous calls from people concerned about Britney's well-being after the TV appearance.
Botox injections can be painful and are not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.
