What Is Howie Mandel’s Viral TikTok Video All About?
As the world battles against COVID-19, many people, including social media influencers and celebrities came across Tiktok to release stress and supplement entertainment to themselves. With over 9.9 million followers, Howie Mendel is also one of the celebrities that use the platform to keep in touch with his fans by posting Tiktok videos. Most of his Tiktok content tends to be reaction content but one of his videos went disturbingly viral afterward.
Howie Mandel has gained attention from many from being the host of Deal or No Deal to being one of the judges on America’s Got Talent. As a public persona, no one ever expected that this guy would go far beyond hilarity. On July 8th, 2022, the comedian appeared on a tiktok video showing a rectal prolapse that he claimed was of his friend’s.
While the netizens were shocked by his surprising content, Mandel continued the content sharing how it happened. He even asked whether the prolapse was related to COVID–19 and what to do about it, clearly oblivious to how he made his audience feel. At the speed of light, the video earned tons of shares reaching its viral point.
This video was posted on his account, officialhowiemandel’ and reached almost 2.8 million views. It is believed that Mndel took it down himself after receiving all the backlash and negative reactions related to the video. The video was deleted, however, his disturbing content continues to circulate on different internet platforms. People were still puzzled why Howie Mandel posted it.
What is Prolapse in Howie Mandel’s Post?
To give light to the viewers, what you have seen to be a gory image on the video of Howie Mandel is obviously not a condition to be laughed at. The video that Mandel referred to as his friend’s condition is called Rectal Prolapse, a medical condition that occurs when the rectum muscles are so weak that it slides out of place.
Rectal prolapse can be caused by constipation, damage from giving birth, pelvis, and low gastrointestinal tract dysfunctions. When Rectal prolapse happens, a large part of your intestine slips outside the end of the digestive tract.
As a response to Howie’s question about his friend’s condition and its relation to COVID-19, the research found no confirmed evidence as to how the two conditions are related. However, medical practitioners explained many things that can increase the development of this prolapse including cystic fibrosis, anus surgery as a child, malnutrition, developmental deformities, and infections.
For this kind of condition, medical practitioners suggest professional care and surgery if the prolapse is on a severe level. Surgery involves removing a section of unnecessary large intestine or reattaching the rectum to the pelvic floor or sacrum. Home treatments may also be applied for partial prolapse.
