There is something about the Internet that causes idiots to really excel at their craft. People that might be mildly stupid on their own can, given a following, do something monumentally stupid.
We don’t have a lot of context in this video, besides her short speech and the caption it has been given linking it to support of BLM.
We’ll address both issues separately.

We have here a relatively attractive chick, with a broad smile, giggling, and who is smeared with what she claims is feces. She isn’t clear on whether it is supposedly her own, or cow manure, or ordinary dog sh*t. She just claims to be covered in it. “For the glory of God”.
Ok. First off — don’t bring God into your stupidity. Nowhere in scripture has God EVER told people to slather themselves with s**t. And that’s highlighted by the fact that the closest God ever came to doing so would be in the case of Ezekiel, who he told to used feces as fuel on which to cook his food (as a picture of hardships the nation of Israel would face in the judgment that was fast approaching). As a concession, God permitted Ezekiel to use cowflop as fuel for the purpose of this acted-out-prophesy rather than people poop.
This has nothing whatsoever to do with God.
So what DOES she say it has to do with? She says it has to do with keeping her ego in check. That’s not how this works.
First — is it even poop? Or did she just smear muck on herself and hope nobody noticed the difference? Not that this matters. The stunt is just as stupid either way.
Second — real humility isn’t about making a public show about how humble you are. That defeats the purpose. This ditzy chick, whoever she is, obviously still wants the affirmation and praise (clicks and shares) she would get in more mundane videos.
She even changed the camera angle to make it quite clear that she was standing there topless under all that grime, and that we get to see just HOW much of her bare body has been smeared with it. See? She manages to show just as much of her besmeared boobies as a pg rating will possibly allow. In the name of ‘humility’.
And she had somehow missed smearing her lips and eyes entirely.
I don’t know who she thinks she was fooling. This whole act was all for show, and isn’t the sort of thing that changes the heart whatsoever.
One preacher’s line (often misattributed to C.S. Lewis) put it this way, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.”
But what about BLM? Since at least one person thinks this has to do with supporting BlackOutTuesday. Does it help THAT cause somehow?
Let’s say our ditzy chick met with George Floyd’s brother after this video went viral.
Imagine her trying to look him in the eye while explaining with a straight face…
