CORRECTION 7/28/2022 9:22PM ET: A previous version of this article's header referred to Miranda Wilson as a "Plastic Surgeon," it has been corrected to reflect that she is a Nurse Practitioner.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Miranda Wilson, a certified aesthetic nurse practitioner injector, involved in plastic surgery and other enhancements, came out with a critique of a 'Stranger Things' character that left the internet furious.
@np.miranda, in a TikTok video that has since been deleted, stated all of the procedures she would perform on actress Natalia Dyer's face.
You can see a copy of the video here, which was shared on Twitter:
\u201cThis video is so toxic that if TikTok is showing shit like this to children, it's no wonder our youth is suffering from such high rates of suicide and depression\nhttps://t.co/YHXlhpNSQi\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
In Wilson's introduction, she alluded to Natalia Dyer's success.
"Alright, guys, let's talk about Natalia Dyer from 'Stranger Things.' First of all, she killed it in 'Stranger Things,' and if you do not like 'Stranger Things,' we cannot be friends."
But then Wilson detailed all that she would change about Natalia's appearance.
"So if I was Natalia's injector, these are things I would do."
"We start by treating those masseters, and we all know how much I like treating masseter muscles to help slim the face."
"Next, I would actually add a little bit of chin filler, just to help fill out her chin and make her whole face more of a heart shape."
"Next, I would add a little bit to the lips. Just a little bit, nothing crazy, just a nice pout."
"And then, we'd get in there and do a little bit of Botox. I'd give her a nice brow lift to help open up her eyes."
"To top it off, we'd start to do some work with Sculptura. She does seem to have more thin skin, and we want to prevent that from getting thinner, and create more Collagen."
Viewers found the video to be alarmingly harmful.
\u201c@davenewworld_2 There's much research, study and articling on the serious harms to teen mental health, particularly girls, from social media sites like TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram. She isn't a Dr, very little training is currently allowed for botox injection and fillers. I think it's criminal\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 It\u2019s not even about whether she\u2019s \u2018pretty already\u2019, as some people (rightly) say. People don\u2019t need to be pretty. She\u2019s fine as she is and this is just an audacious level of rudeness, as well as being really bad for our kids\u2019 mental health.\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 @JoeSchreiber6 Omg why this woman want to change so beautiful face? \ud83e\udd28 she is gorgeous the way she is! Just stop!\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 No. No. No. Hell no. No. Stop it. \n\nShe is pretty just the way she is and so are almost all the women who think about messing with this stuff. \n\nI say almost all women because there are some who choose to fix something that genuinely bothers them that plastic surgery DOES help.\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 She photoshopped the poor girl to look like carbon copy barbie of every single other person out there trying to make a B-list acting career happen :(\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 This is horrible. We need to normalize being fine w/ imperfections. It\u2019s what makes us unique. I\u2019m 53 and haven\u2019t done anything. I might! But, I\u2019m 53! I had a friend who started at 28 & now she\u2019s unrecognizable! Btw, Natalia looked way better before that dr. \u201cfixed\u201d her face.\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 100% that surgeon is filming herself through one of those "beautifying" filters. Ugh. So many industries training people to hate themselves, all for profit\n\nWe need an emphasis on health, as a society, and not on meeting some digitized poreless version of western beauty standards\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
\u201c@davenewworld_2 That's my face shape. My sister, nephew, and cousins all have that same face shape as well. I would never show this to my younger cousins and nephew - so what if it's not conventional? It's unique & makes us stand out. It's a family trait \u2764\ufe0f\u201d— Fifty Shades of Whey (@Fifty Shades of Whey) 1658726243
After receiving backlash for her video, Wilson took her original TikTok down and turned off the commenting feature on all of her videos, likely after viewers turn to other videos to continue commenting about the harmful nature of her video.
Wilson also posted a second video as an apology, which you can view here:
#greenscreen hoping to clear the air that I was not suggesting that Natalia NEEDED any of that work it was just an example. Of course Natalia is absolutely stunning the way she is…that’s why she’s so successful. Her photo was simply an example. Im sorry if peole took that as being mean or rude, that was not my intent at all
"I just want to come on here and basically clear the air. I did not mean to offend anyone, including Natalia."
"I was simply just offering suggestions, not on what you have to do, just on what the possibilities are. As an advanced injector, that's what we do. We look at faces, we assess and look at the possibilities. Not on what you need to do or what you have to do, they're simply just options."
Wilson also wrote in the caption, conflating Natalia's success with her appearance.
"Hoping to clear the air that I was not suggesting that Natalia NEEDED any of that work. It was just an example. Of course, Natalia is absolutely stunning the way she is... That's why she's so successful."
Wilson then showed her own picture and walked viewers through the work she had done, including injecting Botox into her masseter muscles, lip filler, cheek filler, under-eye filler, and eyebrow lift.
It's unclear how this video was received, as the commenting feature was turned off.
Though she attempted to apologize for the initial video, it's still unclear why she felt the need to create it at all.
