TikTok Trolls labels mum a ‘monster’ for lasering port-wine stain birthmark on her baby’s face

An Australian mother who faced backlash from trolls after removing a port-wine birthmark from her baby’s face claims she did it for the child’s health

When the 33 years old Brooke Atkins gave birth to her second child, a boy named Kingsley, she discovered that a birthmark covered half of his face.

Atkins says port wine-stain birthmarks can develop a ‘cobblestone’ appearance, which makes it harder to treat.

However, if they are above the eye, as Kingsley’s port-wine stain birthmark is, they can be connected to glaucoma and Sturge-Weber disease.

While glaucoma can result in blindness, the disorders can result in convulsions and other impairments. The parents chose to begin laser therapy at the end of May after learning that the infant had both conditions.

The mom admits she felt guilty when trolls attacked her for Kingsley's treatment.

“When he was first born, we were referred to the Queensland Children’s Hospital dermatology and vascular department, where they organize the first treatment and explain in further detail why laser would be important,” Atkins explained to

“The purpose of the laser treatments are not to ‘remove’ the birthmark but instead keep the skin healthy, to prevent any further damage to the area.”

TikTok critics have called the mother of two a “monster” for giving her infant boy laser surgery, despite the fact that the procedure was in his best interests.

Atkins was called a  “monster” for choosing to laser her baby’s large facial birthmark.

“Don’t think I could laser my baby,” one user wrote.

“Brainwashed mother making her kid insecure the second he gets out the womb,” said another.

“Why is everyone supporting this,” another commented.

The mother, who also has a 2-year-old daughter named Amarni with her partner Kewene Wallace, acknowledges that the unfavorable remarks caused her to question her decision.

“Honestly, when I first started reading the negative comments, I sat there for a good half an hour and cried to myself,” she said.

“I had a whole heap of mum guilt, and it made me question my decision. Even though I knew I was doing the right thing, the cruel words still played in my head.

With more than 32,700 people following little Kingsley’s journey on social media, supporters have left plenty of positive comments on the mom’s videos.

“You’re the mom and you know what is best for him,” one user assured her.

“I would have done the same thing and wished I had a strong mum like you to help educate,” agreed another.

“I never realized it could affect health!? Thank you for the video he is adorable!” another user wrote.

The Mayo Clinic claims that Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome or Sturge-Weber syndrome can occasionally cause port-wine stains, necessitating routine medical monitoring.

Kingsley is responding well to treatment.

Kingsley is doing well so far and reacting well to the treatments, according to Atkins, who has booked the next laser visit for August.


Before you comment nasty things – its not just a birthmark,its a portwine stain, the goal isnt to completley remove it, its to keep the skin healthy.Please research PWS before leaving uneducated, negative comments✌🏾

“Over 20 hospital appointments, two different hospitals, over 10 different specialists and doctors, five different medical departments, three MRIs, one ultrasound, two hearing tests, two operations, two laser treatments, and three diagnoses, all in six months – yet he is the happiest, most loving and sweetest boy you will ever meet!” she gushes.


A Property Developer who underwent a nose job after years of insecurity says it’s the best decision he ever made

This man had a nose job and is proud of the decision he made. The 34 years old property Develop Daniel Warwick hated the way his nose looked since he was a teenager and finally took the decision of his life and underwent a £6,000 rhinoplasty in February 2018. 

He was encouraged to have the surgery after seeing a photograph of his nose in profile which he did not like.

He told FEMAIL: ‘[When I was younger] I did not really understand what a plastic surgeon was. I was a bit scared because I thought that’s only what women do.

‘It’s not really a man thing. So I have never really paid attention. But when I was a lot older someone took a picture from the side and I fully realized, “whoa I need to change that actually”.’

Mr. Warwick said that shortly after the photo was taken, he started the process of organizing the procedure, which included holding a consultation.

‘Originally my mum was not supposed to come with me to the surgeon because I told her “listen, I’ll be ok I don’t need anyone with me,’ he continued. 

‘You know, acting as a man would. Two days before the surgery I rang my mum and told her to come with me for mental support.’

After seeing Mr. Alex Karidis for the treatment, Mr. Warwick spent the night in the hospital and had the bandage taken off the following week.

After a few months, the swelling had subsided and he could enjoy his new appearance, but not all of his friends and family had noticed.

Daniel, pictured after the surgery, paid £6,000 at the time for the rhinoplasty. The procedure now costs £12,000

He continued: ‘No one knew I had an operation. I was expecting people to say you look different. None of them did.

‘Of course you had a couple of people who knew me very closely who looked at me from the side and said, “hey something’s different here”. And then I had to tell them, the people who were shown the before and after, they all say, “Oh my god, you know?”‘

As a result of the nose job, he started to look after his body and joined the gym. 

The 34-year-old said: ‘I presume that a lot of men and women have this thing done and I presume also that a lot of men will look down on other men doing it because it is not a manly thing to do.’

He continued by saying that he spoke to some men who had undergone surgery but were hesitant to inform others for fear of being laughed at.

‘One said to me ‘how do you tell people freely you have had a nose job?’

He continued: ‘We are programmed as human beings sometimes to think something is negative when really it’s positive i.e. men having plastic surgery.

‘Why can’t men have it? If it makes you feel better then absolutely. Yes, there are a lot of people that do hide it. And when I speak to them it’s only with other men. If it was a woman they would say it.’

Daniel continued by saying that it is likely that keeping the surgery a secret and refusing to discuss it will have an impact on men’s mental health and that they need assistance and to watch out for one another.

‘I’ve actually learned to love myself after this operation and I am who I am. 

Daniel said that after his procedure, no one knew he had an operation. He expected people to say he looked different but no one did other than people who knew him very closely

‘I learned to live with it. Am I perfect? I am just a normal human being but I learned to love myself and that’s what is important.’ 


Tesco Shopper gets Clubcard Tattooed On Arm So He Never Misses A Bargain

Want to stop frequently forgetting your Tesco Clubcard? This man, though, offers a remedy for your forgetfulness. Last Saturday (July 16), the 30 years old Dean Mayhew spent £200 to have the QR code from his Clubcard permanently inked at A Star Tattoos in Chessington, southwest London.

Dean Mayhew got his Clubcard tattooed on his arm

Now that the store offers a variety of discounts and specials, Dean always carries his card with him.

Dan Rossetter, a tattoo artist, is shown stenciling the code onto a piece of paper before applying it to Dean’s wrist in a video that has now gone viral on TikTok.

The tattoo artist is then seen meticulously copying the complex code with his needle in the hope that Tesco will be able to scan it.

Dean and Dan attempt to use the code to purchase cookies in the video by going to the closest Tesco store. Unfortunately, because of the strange angle, Dean is unable to sufficiently bend his arm to allow the code to scan.

After what appears to be a failure, the cashier tries his luck and manages to scan the tattooed Clubcard.

Since the tattoo has impressed TikTok viewers, expect to see some imitators in the near future. Depending on how many different discount cards someone possesses, there may also be armfuls of QR codes.

Dean went under the needle so he would never forget his Clubcard

One said: “Late game capitalism,” as another joked: “@Tesco you’ve got to change his membership number.”

A third added: “That’s brilliant,” while a fourth wrote: “F*****g class.”

Dean said he now uses it all the time: “I’m chuffed, I love it and use it all the time. I use it every morning when I go to Tesco before work.

“I used it this morning. It’s one of those things where I get to see people’s faces and make them smile.”

“One lady giggled and asked me for a photo” he admitted.

Dean says the tattoo works best on manned checkouts

Dean said at the moment of decision. “I’ve wanted to do it for ages, about three months I’ve been thinking about it.”

“I just thought it would be funny.

The QR barcode can be read by handheld scanners

“They’re (cashiers) just stunned and look at me and say ‘that’s not real’ and I say it is.

“I just thought it is what it is, even if it didn’t work it still looks alright.”

The young woman from Cwmbran, Wales, struggled to walk after getting an electric shock. Just as the train was about to arrive at the location where she had fallen, a brave man she didn’t know quickly pulled her back onto the platform.

Tegan was quickly rushed to an area hospital’s emergency room after suffering burns to her back, legs, and limbs as well as what appeared to be a fracture.

She claimed that if it weren’t for the rubber-soled boots she was wearing at the time, the voltage from the live track might have killed her. She also said that if the unidentified man who saved her hadn’t intervened, she would have perished.

Tegan told ITV News: “I was at the beginning of the track, so as soon as that train came around that corner, that was it then, I was going to be gone. If he wasn’t there, I genuinely would be dead.

A woman who fell on to the tracks of the London Underground and was rescued seconds before being hit by a train is searching for the man who saved her life.

Posted by ITV News on Thursday, July 21, 2022

“People were saying to me, ‘We thought we were going to be collecting your body,’ and it all hit me then and then I said, ‘Oh my god, I’m literally supposed to be dead right now.'”

Tegan is now looking for the man who saved her because she wants to personally thank him.

She said: I want to meet up with him. I want to do that face-to-face because that’s not something you can do over the phone, is it? I’m thanking him for my life. He needs a cwtch!”

According to Tegan, the man was possibly in his 30s, dressed casually, and had mousy brown hair.

She continued: “He wanted to stay with me, he didn’t want to leave me, but all his mates were like: ‘Come on, we need to get on a train, we need to go, we need to go.’ So I don’t know where he was going. There are so many things in London that he could be there for.”


Plus-size Woman hits back at trolls who say the husband is ‘too hot for her’

People who argue that a woman’s marriage is unsuitable for her due to her physical type have come under fire from the woman in question. Last year, TikTok star Kate and her husband Matthew opened a joint account on the app. To their 12,700-strong following, the pair frequently posts adorable movies and updates in an effort to commemorate their lives as newlyweds.

However, when people started criticizing Kate’s appearance in the comments, she reacted strongly.

In a recent video, Alicia criticized the responses to one of her videos as being especially unsatisfactory. The scene in question began with her and Scott wrapped in towels and ended with them looking groomed and prepared for a formal occasion.

Despite the fact that the video received over 43 million views, Alicia realized that much of the attention it was getting came from those who were startled to learn that she and Scott were dating.

She called out viewers whose initial reaction had been to wonder why someone who was physically healthy would be with someone who was seen to be “fat” by society in a follow-up TikTok.

“The world looks at us and immediately values Scott more than me. And since we don’t add up, people try to add things to my side of the equation to make it make sense by saying things like, ‘Oh, she must not have been fat when they met’ or ‘Oh, she’s got to be rich,'” she said in the clip.

“Or they try to decrease his side of the equation by saying things like, ‘He must be gay’ or ‘He fetishes fat women,'” Alicia continued.

“We’ve been made to believe that somebody who is physically fit like Scott could never in a million years be in love with or compatible with a fat woman. And that’s solely because the world has literally taught us that we have to value our worth on our bodies,” she added.

“On the scale of what my husband values, how well my body fits into the beauty standard is not at the top of his list. He values my humor and my commitment and my love and my caring heart — and none of these things he values about me changes when my body changes,” Alicia explained.

She ended the video by saying that it is our responsibility to “unlearn” the damaging ideas society has taught us.

“If this is the way you think, it’s the way you’ve been taught. However, it is your responsibility to unlearn it,” she told her followers.


Actress Alicia Silverstone reveals she still sleeps in the same bed as her 11-year-old son

This week, the Clueless actress participated in an episode of The Ellen Fisher Podcast where she talked about her decades-long vegan diet and attachment parenting philosophy, among other things. She may have divulged too much information by mentioning how close she is to her son Bear.

“Bear and I still sleep together,” she admitted.

But she added: “I don’t really care.”

Alicia defended her parenting method despite knowing that the remarks might land her in “trouble”.

“I’m a natural mama, and I’m a loving mama. I believe in love, I believe in nature and our society is scared of nature and love,” she said.

During her interview on the podcast, she revealed how she took a different approach to toilet training Bear.

Instead of using nappies, she said she used her intuition to know when he needed the bathroom.

After a while, she claims he was able to take himself there when he needed to go.

“There was a period of time where I was watching him naked and watching the cues,” she said.

“The cues part for me was enjoyable because I thought he was flirting with me because he would do this little smile. That’s when he had to pee.”

Silverstone added: “It’s so awesome. It’s so easy.

“When I was done feeding him, he would go to the bathroom in the toilet. When he woke up from a nap, he went to the bathroom.”

But Alicia has admitted that previously, things have occasionally gotten a little too close.

She claimed that although Bear adored her classic movie Clueless, he later realized that showing 1995 original to a child might not have been the best option.

She told Entertainment Tonight: “He saw Clueless when he was five because it was on at the Hollywood [Forever] Cemetery… Four thousand people came to see and I couldn’t pass that experience up, of watching it under the stars, pillows on the ground with rosé.

“He was so young and it’s not appropriate, I think, for a five-year-old to watch that movie… it’s all about sex and stuff, so I just realized, ‘Oops.’ But, at the time… he loved it.”

After seeing the movie, Silverstone—who played Cher Horowitz in the classic—spoke about how her son had “picked up” a new method to express her love.

She continued: “But what he really picked up [on is] he tried to kiss me, like, passionate kisses, because that’s what he saw in the movie.”

She also admitted to feeding Bear like a bird by chewing up his food and also taking baths with him.
