Sheriff’s Office Photoshops Kim Kardashian’s Meth Face
A sheriff’s department in Bradley County, Tennessee, went a little too far in a recent exercise to encourage members of the public not to dabble with smoking meth. Someone in the department which the sheriff’s office will only identify as a volunteer, actually photoshopped reality star Kim Kardashian’s face to show what it would look like if Kardashian was a regular meth smoker. The department website compared a photo of the lovely looking star of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” with a photo alongside that showed how scarred and ugly Kim’s face would appear if she regularly smoked the dangerous drug meth.
This is not that first time that a law enforcement division in the country has attempted to scare people straight from using meth by showing the devastating effects it can have on how an individual looks. The volunteer who decided to use Kardashian as a model on the department’s Drug Enforcement page obviously believed that people would take their warning much more seriously if they focused on a famous celebrity face rather than showing a real person that no one knew or could identify with. But once Kardashian’s face did appear on the Tennessee sheriff’s department website, there was a wrongful assumption made by many who saw it that Kardashian had actually begun using meth.

When confronted about their unauthorized use of a celebrity face in their public service campaign, the Bradley County Sheriff’s Department claimed that they were not aware that it was Kardashian’s famous face that had been altered to help people steer clear of the ugly effects of taking meth. They report that a volunteer who no longer works for the Department was responsible for setting up that portion of their website. Kardashian’s face has since been removed, replaced by an under construction notice.
Below are some photos of real meth users:
Meanwhile, Kardashian has confirmed that she is already trying for her second child. This will be the first child born within the bonds of matrimony. However, the couple aren’t entirely in agreement as to when they should have the baby. For his part, Kanye wants to see his wife get pregnant once he is done with his current tour. Apparently, Mrs. West wants to be pregnant now and have that experience coincide with the pregnancy of her younger sister Kourtney. Given that Kourtney is mid-way through her second trimester, Kim had better get busy if she wants to have some baby bump overlap with her sister.
Kim admits that life with her family is kind of crazy right now. While that might mean it’s time to simplify things, Kim is all in favor of tossing her hormones to the wind and turning up the craziness meter with a pregnancy of her own. Kim made her willingness to get pregnant clear during an interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Rob Marciano. While she was getting her sunless tan, she admitted that she’s wishing and hoping for another baby. In the past, she has said she wanted to have a big family. At 33 years of age, Mrs. West isn’t getting any younger so the time is now.
