I was scrolling through some news links and saw this story:
A New Jersey mother is facing criminal charges for child endangerment after police said she put her 6-year-old daughter in a stand-up tanning booth, causing burns.
On Tuesday, Patricia Krentcil told CBS New York that the whole incident was a big misunderstanding. Krentcil, 44, loves to tan, and has done so her whole life.
“I’ve been tanning my whole life, going to the beach, tanning salons and so forth,” she said.
While the mother of five has that habit, she’s adamant she would never tan her 6-year-old, fair-skinned daughter Anna.
“No not at all, not at all, not whatsoever,” Krentcil said.
But that’s exactly why Nutley police arrested and charged Krentcil with child endangerment. She allegedly took Anna to a tanning salon and into a tanning booth which caused a slight burn (CBS News).
Take a look at her skin. Do you see how crazy that looks? Apparently she doesn’t and if she did put her six-year-old daughter in a tanning booth, she must want her to look as jacked up as she does. When I first saw a picture of Krentcil, I thought she was in blackface and I was on the verge of being offended. However, once I read the article, I just pitied her for being so obsessive with her tanning and allegedly subjecting her child to such foolishness.
