Stepanka Matto a Czech-American YouTuber, social media influencer, reality TV show star and model who claimed have made $50,000 in a week by selling her farts in a jar was hospitalised for “overdoing it”. She sold each jar for $1000. She has now announced her retirement after the health scare.

The Daily mail quoted Matto in a statement, “I thought i was having a stroke and that these were my final moments. I was overdoing it.”

“I remember within one day I had about three protein shakes and a huge bowl of black bean soup,” she said while explaining the events that led her to hospital.


“I could tell that something was not right that evening when I was lying in bed and I could feel a pressure in my stomach moving upward.” 

She continued by adding, “It was quite hard to breathe and every time I tried to breathe in I’d feel a pinching sensation around my heart. And that, of course, made my anxiety escalate.”


“I actually called my friend and asked if they could come over to drive me to the hospital because I thought I was experiencing a heart attack.

“I ended up going to the hospital that evening. I didn’t tell my doctors about the farting in the jar but I did tell them about my diet,” the influencer added.

“It was made clear that what I was experiencing wasn’t a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains.” “I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business.”
