The 66-year-old went to his “officialhowiemandel” TikTok account, which has more than 9.8 million followers and more than 180 million likes. In a video posted to TikTok today, the actor showed a disturbing picture of a friend who had a rectal prolapse.
At the time this article was written, the video had been watched more than 2.8 million times.
It wasn’t a surprise that the disturbing picture shocked people on the Internet. Many people also wondered if it was okay for such a racy picture to be posted on the platform.
Meaning of prolapse explained as Howie Mandel posts disturbing video
WebMD says that prolapse is a condition in which a body part moves out of its normal place.
From the bloody video Howie Mandel posted, it looks like the picture was of a rectal prolapse. In a rectal prolapse, a piece of the large intestine slips out of its normal place and falls or slides out of the anus.
No doctors or websites about medals have said the same thing online. It is still not clear what causes a prolapse. But it has been shown that the following things can cause a rectal prolapse:
Constipation or diarrhea for a long time
Old age has made the muscles and ligaments in the rectal area weaker. Previous injuries in the groin or hip area have made the muscles and ligaments there weaker.
Long term strain when excreting
For this kind of prolapse, a doctor may suggest a procedure to put the rectum back where it should be.
Netizens react to Howie Mandel’s TikTok video
Even though the situation seems dangerous, netizens were not happy to see such explicit content shared on TikTok. Many people said they were sorry they watched the video.
People are angry at the TV star for sharing a graphic image, and many are also wondering why TikTok didn’t take down the video.

TikTok has made it clear that they do not allow videos where a “open wound or injury is the main focus,” so it is unclear why the video has not been taken down.
In their rules, they also say that if the content is very disturbing, they will “ban the account” and may also report it to the authorities.
