A Woman Demands Bigger Airline Seats for Her Butt, Looks Unrecognizable in Old Photos




A young model has sparked a global conversation with a simple request: make airplane seats wider. The iNFLuencer pleads that bodies are changing and hence, airplane seats should be made bigger too. When faced with criticism, the model revealed she has not had any surgeries to enhance her butt and shared old photos.

A viral dilemma.

Gracie Bon, a social media star from Panama, went viral when she shared a video of herself on a plane. It showed her struggling to buckle up in an airplane seat. Her discomfort was evident as she tried to adjust herself in the cramped space. The video struck a chord with many, spreading like wildfire across social media platforms.

She elaborated on her struggle and many resonated with her.

Despite booking first-class tickets, Gracie found no respite. She faced the same issue. The seats were still just too small for her curvaceous figure.

This led her to voice a bold statement. She urged airplanes should have bigger seats. She also argued that it’s not her responsibility to change her body to fit into the seats.

Gracie’s message received both support and criticism.

Gracie’s outspokenness brought mixed reactions. While some applauded her for standing up for plus-sized individuals, others criticized her. They suggested that her body’s proportions were a result of plastic surgery. Gracie stood firm, countering that her physique was natural. She requested that the airline industry adapt to accommodate everyone despite their size.

The model shared her impressive transformation journey.

Putting the negative comments about her having surgery to make her butt bigger to rest, Gracie spoke out. She shared before and after photos of herself. She clarified that she used to weigh 300 lbs (136 kg).

When she was 21 years old, she decided to adopt a Healthier Lifestyle. She started working out and taking care of herself. She also added that she made such a decision as her weight started affecting her Health and led to knee pain and breathing issues.

She admitted to having surgeries on her upper body.

Gracie successfully lost 100 lbs (45 kg). She confesses that to deal with extra skin, she opted for surgery. In fact, she says she had «many» small surgeries to remove the loose skin. Gracie also promotes body positivity and believes that no one body type is superior. We should all feel comfortable in our own skin without giving into beauty standards.

Many people still had various questions. Some asked how she was able to only lose weight in her upper body. Others questioned how her face changed completely. A few also wondered if she edits her photos. Gracie is yet to comment on these concerns.

Another woman made headlines for her surprising transformation. She removed all of her teeth. You can read about it here.

Terminally ill man warned others not to make the same mistake he had made

Liam had bravely shared his story to warn others not to make the same mistake that he did. Check in comments.

There are times when despite feeling unwell, we refuse to visit a doctor hoping that the pain would eventually go away on its own. The sad reality is that if we don’t seek medical help when we first feel the symptoms of an illness, it may be too late when we do it.

A 31-year-old man from Middlesborough, UK, who was battling terminal cancer advocated about the importance of regular check-ups and visiting a doctor on time.

Liam Griffiths believed that he could have been able to beat the cancer had he turned to a medical professional sooner.

Despite his efforts to beat the illness, Liam was delivered the devastating news it was fatal.

Namely, he was suffering from peritoneal cancer, a form of cancer that affects the lining of the abdomen.

In an interview, Liam revealed that he started experiencing stomach swelling, chronic constipation, cramps and vomiting in March of 2023. Although his symptoms seemed to be severe, he didn’t visit a doctor because he was self-employed and didn’t want to lose out on wages.

He hoped the symptoms would go away, but they only worsened and became even more severe which forced him to seek medical help. Once at the hospital, he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, but a month later he got a call from the doctor and was informed that he was in fact misdiagnosed and that he had cancer.

He started treatments right away, but sadly, his cancer was resistant to the chemotherapy.

Despite the gravity of his situation, this young man found the time and strength to send a message to every person out there, and that message is not to delay the doctor’s visit in case you feel something’s wrong with your body.

“I want to push this message because if just one or two people go to the hospital and get checked because of my mistake and my story, that would be amazing,” he said. “They found my cancer at stage three advanced – but if I had just gone to see the doctors earlier, maybe they could have caught it. I was self-employed, and I needed the money, so I just kept powering through. I did what I thought a man needed to do – I was manning up.”

Not losing hope despite the dull prognosis, Liam’s friend, Eve Bannatyne, started a fundraiser which helped raise over £18,000 in donations for Liam’s private treatment because his chemotherapy on the NHS no longer worked.

“I remember I asked what my life span would look like and my doctor said he doesn’t want to give me a timeframe of when my life could end, because he doesn’t want me to focus my whole life around it,” Liam told Metro.

“I agreed and just decided I wanted to get home, fulfil some wishes and just live my life while I can.”

Sadly, Liam passed away on February 1, 2024.

The memorial service for him was led by Rev John Hearn. Liam’s dad spoke of his son and said, “Liam was a beautiful, funny, caring, big softie. As a kid he was very loving towards his mam and dad. There was always a cuddle. He also had his cheeky side.”

Liam’s life story serves as a reminder that we should always prioritize our Health, even if that means losing out on wages or rescheduling certain commitments and duties.

We are so very sorry for this brave man’s passing. May he rest in peace.
