Tenn. woman files complaint after 'ghetto booty' diagnosis
JACKSON, Tenn. — A woman in Tennessee filed a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Health after she said a doctor told her that her back pain was caused by her “ghetto booty.”
“I think I blacked out after he said ‘ghetto booty.’ I think my mind was just stuck on the phrase because I couldn’t believe he said that,” Terry Ragland, 55, told WREG.
The woman said she had been to the doctor’s office many times before, but this was the first time she had seen this doctor. The doctor ordered x-rays for her, then she said he returned with the diagnosis.
