Stephanie Matto is stepping away from one particular job at 31…with that job being selling farts. Matto gained wide recognition after appearing on reality show 90-Day Fiance, and she has transformed that into a range of businesses, including a YouTube channel, a X-rated subscription site, books and more. But the most curious of her businesses may be her plan to fart into jars and sell those farts for $1,000 each, which she said in December had her making almost $50,000 a week. However, as per Yaron Steinbuch at The New York Post, Matto has now abandoned that following a heart attack scare linked to her fart-creating diet:
But after making $200,000 in sales, the influencer has announced her retirement when she passed one too many and got the wind knocked out of her, Jam Press reported.
Matto was rushed to a hospital with chest pains she feared were symptoms of a heart attack, according to the outlet.
After undergoing a battery of tests, including blood work and an EKG, Matto was told that her pain was the result of her steady diet of gas-inducing beans and eggs.
“I thought I was having a stroke and that these were my final moments,” Matto told Jam Press. “I was overdoing it.”
The self-proclaimed “fartrepreneuer” had squeezed out up to 50 jars’ worth of farts a week to keep up with demand – and even added protein shakes to her diet to make them more pungent.
…“It was made clear that what I was experiencing wasn’t a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains,” Matto told the outlet, adding that she did not tell docs about her rear racket.
“I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business,” she said.
This is a much more capitalistic version of the “Fart Attack” scene from Parks and Recreation:
From December, here’s a video of Matto talking about her fart-based business:
And here’s her reading customer reviews:
At least Matto didn’t actually have a heart attack. Best wishes to her with her diet change, and with her non-flatulence-based businesses.
