Howie Mandel shocked the internet after posting a TikTok video showing a prolapsed anus.
The America’s Got Talent Judge posted the clip to his verified TikTok account, which has more than 9.9 million followers, on Saturday night.
“It happened” when a friend leaned over, the Canadian comedian said in the clip. “Does anyone know, is this COVID related? And if so, what do we do about it?”
The video ran for several hours before it was deleted, and Mandel hasn’t acknowledged it in clips he’s posted since.
“Howie I’m gonna need you to talk about this man,” one person wrote in the lead comment for Mandel’s latest TikTok video.
‘This looks like a cover up Howard,’ wrote another, while another called for a ‘tears apology video’.
The video also led to Mandel trending on Twitter, as many shared their horrified reactions.
“Howie Mandel just traumatized an entire generation of kids with a TikTok,” NBC News reporter Kalhan Rosenblatt wrote in a tweet.
Singer Samatha Scarlette wrote: “Howie Mandel sane? This TikTok was absolutely crazy. I’m like wow…”
Journalist Jules Suzdaltsev asked why the video was not deleted by TikTok.
“I don’t understand why I’m getting videos on TikTok saying maybe the police are bad meanwhile Howie Mandel posted a full prolapse,” Suzdaltsev tweeted.
“Howie Mandel’s TikTok is a metaphor for the whole world right now,” joked Ronnie Talbott.
Another Twitter user shared an image from the film mean girls showing people with their hands up, writing next to it: “Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by Howie Mandel displaying a prolapsed anus on his tik tok.”
Some have warned people not to check why Mandel is trending on Twitter in case they come across the uncensored video.
“I THOUGHT HOWIE MANDEL IS DEAD OR SOMETHING MUCH WORSE,” one Twitter user wrote.
Another said they were “really too scared to go on TikTok for fear of coming across the Howie Mandel prolapse video”.
Mandel has previously spoken about his own health, including his obsessive compulsive disorder.
He took to Twitter to update his followers after he passed out while visiting a Starbucks in Los Angeles in October last year. “I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar,” he said.
A few days earlier, he had shared video footage of himself in the hospital as he recovered from a colonoscopy.
“The patient in the next bed recognized my voice and tried to audition for AGT as he woke up,” he said.
Newsweek contacted Mandel representatives for comment.
