Bameron Nicole Smith of California becomes most hated on the internet after video of the transgender woman gargling Listerine at a Walmart store before spitting it back in the bottle and putting it back on the shelf.
Oh no not again! Causing revile on social media is video of a Walmart shopper gargling mouthwash before spitting it back into the bottle and returning it to the shelf.
Smith is walking into frame, opening a bottle of mouthwash, before taking a swig of Listerine and dumping the contents back into the container. Hunky dory kids!
But there’s more. Cause this one is bound to go viral.
The video continues with Smith commenting, ‘Mmm, nice and minty and fresh’ before waving ‘thank you guys’ and strutting off down the aisle.

Walmart gargling mouthwash customer: ‘Am I famous yet?’
By Saturday evening the clip captioned, ‘you bitches with no oral hygiene could take a hint’ had received 17.2 million views and had been re-tweeted 7300 times. Bingo kids!
‘Watch me become an overnight social media bixch star!’ says me.
The video led to social media commentators saying the video was staged as Smith didn’t appear to break a seal on the bottle. It’s unclear whether Smith later removed and paid for the item but a later tweet on her twitter account revealed Smith joking alongside a video running in platform shoes: ‘Walmart loss prevention chasing me out like.’
Staged or not, commentators
took the bait soon piled on, with many saying Smith’s antics (redolent of the Blue Ice Cream licker girl– more on that below kids) was a crime and demanding she be arrested and prosecuted.
Commented one social media user, ‘Another one for prison. Hope you have fun with your new inmate friends’, to which Smith replied: ‘I LOOKED IN THE CELL NEXT TO ME AND ITS THE ICE CREAM GIRL.’
Bingo kids. Infamy on social media has found a calling. But can one make a living off being a bad social media icon?

Blue Ice Cream girl: ‘Did I get your attention?’
Bameron Smith’s video follows that of a Lufkin, Texas teen seen licking ice cream before putting it back into the freezer at grocery stores.
The incident which was caught on video and causing national indignation led to Blue Bell Creameries ice cream releasing the following statement:
‘We want to thank our consumers for alerting us to the recent food tampering incident. We take this issue very seriously and are currently working with law enforcement, retail partners and social media platforms. This type of incident will not be tolerated.
‘Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers.
‘During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid creating a natural seal. The lids are frozen tightly to the carton. Any attempt at opening the product should be noticeable. We will continue to monitor this situation.’
Authorities were able to identify the ice cream licker but declined to release her identity on account of her being only 17.

Bameron Nicole Smith: A mirror of America trash-pop culture?
But back to our newest and latest collective hero, Bameron Smith who appears to be revelling in the condemnation she has received since her gargling video going viral.
Tweeted Smith in one twitter post, ‘oomf and i break the internet by breathing.’
And how did Walmart respond to the latest instance of consumer tampering?
Told the outlet in a statement via the dailymal, ‘We are investigating this incident’,
‘If someone tampers with a product and leaves it on the shelf, we will work with law enforcement to identify and prosecute those found responsible to the fullest extent of the law.’
Of course that might just bring a wide brim smile on Bameron Nicole Smith’s face as she aspires to be the new anti hero of American disposable culture….
i love ice cream and mouthwash 🙂 pic.twitter.com/sHVkpLPxkt
