Level 57 Taco Wizard
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A social media post that shows a young girl inside in a Jacksonville medical center licking a tongue depressor and then placing it back into a jar has gone viral.
The video was recorded in an exam room at the All About Kids and Families Medical Center. The medical office told News4Jax it's troubled by the video. A statement from the office said it has contacted police to request a full investigation.
The girl's mother said she recorded the video and posted it to her Snapchat account. She said one of her followers pulled up the video while someone else recorded video of the screen and that person posted the video to the Only in Duval Facebook page.
The viral video shows an adult fiddling through a jar of tongue depressors. The girl then reaches inside and takes one.
She then licks the depressor and places it back inside.
Since the video went viral, the mother said she's started receiving death threats. She asked not to be identified.
News4Jax asked why she recorded it. She responded, "I had just been waiting a long time. I was just being silly with my kids."
Her soon-to-be-ex-husband said he was horrified when he realized the girl in the video was his daughter.
"My mouth hit the floor. I was completely surprised and shocked that she would even put something like that out there to be seen," the father said. "I'm very embarrassed. That is not how I want my children raised or brought up."
