Media Moment: “Patricia Krentcil, Tanorexic Mom, Gets Her Own Action Figure”
I’m pretty sure you have all heard about
Patricia Krentil, the mother who was accused of putting her 6 year old daughter
in a tanning bed and was arrested for second degree child endangerment. Her
picture has gone viral, and has continued to be for a rather long time.
Krentcil has even been banned from NJ tanning salons! I came across a more
recent article which proves that this scandal has gone so far that
Herobuilders.com has made a customized action figure call the “Tanorexic Action Figure” selling for $29.95! Patricia Krentcil
is now best known as “Leather face!”
Question: Do think this story would have been as
popular as it is, if Krentcil was a man?
