If you think you have heard of weird careers until now, you might want to reconsider your comprehension of the same. American reality TV star Stephanie Matto has been making it to the headline as she recently gave up on her career of selling farts in a jar after being rushed to the hospital recently.
In a TikTok video, Stephanie revealed that she had an unusual side hustle wherein she would bottle up her farts and sell them for as much as $1,000 a jar. Interestingly, the demand for her pungent product was so high that Ms Matto was selling 50 jars a week at one point, reported Metro News.
Unfortunately, the TV star’s stints did not seem to go well for her. The Youtuber had to give up on her lucrative business after major healthcare. Ms Matto announced her retirement from selling farts after she was rushed to the hospital.
"I thought I was having a stroke and that these were my final moments. I was overdoing it," she was quoted as saying by Ladbible. Stephanie Matto also shared that she had switched to a high-fiber diet of beans, eggs and protein shakes to keep up with the demand.
The 31-year-old said she had consumed three protein shakes and a huge bowl of black bean soup the day she was rushed to the hospital - all in an attempt to fart more.
"It was quite hard to breathe and every time I tried to breathe in I'd feel a pinching sensation around my heart," she recalled.
"And that, of course, made my anxiety escalate. I actually called my friend and asked if they could come over to drive me to the hospital because I thought I was experiencing a heart attack."
Following her arrival at the hospital, Matto was relieved to learn she was not having a heart attack or a stroke. "It was made clear that what I was experiencing wasn't a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains," she said.
