Courtney Barnes is a former economics student and current cam girl and model from Miami, Florida. She’s 32 years old, and has a 59-inch butt. I don't usually introduce people by citing their ass measurements, but in this case it's highly relevant to the story.
Barnes' bountiful backside has catapulted her to fame and fortune as a butt model, but it hasn't all been fun and games. For one, she risked her life, using highly dangerous and illegal silicone injections, to get her butt to 59 inches—which, as it turns out, is bigger than she wanted.
Six years ago, Barnes aka "Ms. Miami" was working as a dancer when she opted to get her butt enlarged at a “pumping party" where injections, which often contain unknown substances, are administered by people with no medical experience.
These are very dangerous products that are being injected. I don't know for sure what they injected me with. But when I got it, she said it was like some hydrogel, some kind of silicone that they normally put in gummy bear implants. You don't know how your body is going to react. It is still something foreign that's in your body. It's a gamble.
Luckily, Barnes experienced no medical complications from the procedure, and her gamble seems to have paid off. She and her 59-inch gummy-butt immediately soared to internet fame, which she figured out how to monetize.
"One thing that I did learn in economics is that it's about having a product that people want—and my product is myself right now," she told the Daily Mail. "I want to show men, women, and children that it is possible to be beautiful, smart, and have a big ass."
See?? Who says college is a waste of money??
Her butt is basically just a diploma that you take everywhere.
But despite being an inspiration to the youth, having such a big butt also has its downsides, apparently. Barnes describes herself as a "shy person" and said "being looked at constantly can make me feel uncomfortable sometimes."
She also has a hard time getting people to take her seriously or respect her. "People stare at me everywhere I go and not every reaction is positive," she said. "I feel like women are intimidated by me and men view me as a piece of meat."
So remember, pervy dudes and judgy internet, just because a woman has a 59-inch butt does not mean she isn't a person who deserves kindness and respect. Just like you and me. Only with way more success, money and Instagram followers.
