A 15-year-old Chinese girl has become an Internet phenomenon after undergoing extensive plastic surgery.
The girl, who goes by the name Lee Hee Danae, was slammed after disturbing images of her post-makeover went viral on social media.
Netizens remarked that she is “so beautiful that one dares not to look”, while others likened her looks to that of the “snake spirit”, a white serpent in Chinese mythology, because of her pointed chin and bleached-white skin.
According to Chinese website cbg.cn, Danae, who is reportedly from the Henan province in China, may have undergone plastic surgery to win back her ex-boyfriend, though some netizens have commented that the photos may be fake or digitally enhanced.
Nevertheless, most agreed that the result was artificial and diabolical.
“There may be something I don't understand about Chinese beauty ideas. To me, she looks like a monster,” wrote ShanghaiWatcher on website Shanghaiist.
“Looks like she's wearing a mask. No expression, just one set look. It's as painful to watch as Twilight,” commented YaDan, while Siti Noor said: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I won't comment if this is a beautiful outcome or otherwise... but to me, she doesn't even look human.”
