According to local reports, the Canadian model took his own life, although no further details are available at this time.

In a message on Facebook, Genest’s management company said he “was loved by all those who had the chance to meet him and know him.”

Translated from French, this is what the message reads:

The whole dulcedo family is shocked and pained by this tragedy. Zombie boy, Rico, was loved by all those who had the chance to meet him and know him. Icon of the artistic scene and the fashion world, this innovator, against popular culture, has been able to charm all hearts.

We received the unfortunate news at the beginning of the afternoon and members of the team have come to support his family and relatives in this dark and difficult moment.

We want to present our deepest condolences and the legend will survive human.

Thank you zb for these beautiful moments in your company and for your radiant smile.

Lady Gaga, meanwhile, who has spoken out often about her own struggles with mental health and about the challenges others face in this area, also paid tribute to Genest on Instagram.

haha, genest

T”he suicide of friend Rick Genest, Zombie Boy is beyond devastating,” the artist wrote, adding:

“We have to work harder to change the culture, bring Mental Health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it. If you are suffering, call a friend or family today.

“We must save each other.”

The singer subsequently added two other messages along these same sad lines:


Kindness and mental health aren’t one time practices. They aren’t just to do list items.

This fall, in partnership with @btwfoundation, I’ll explore the power of habits to build cultures of kindness and wellness.


Science tells us that it takes 21 days to form a habit, if you are suffering from Mental Health issue I beckon for today to be your first day or a continuation of the work you’ve been doing.

Reach out if you’re in pain, and if you know someone who is, reach out to them too.

Genest holds a Guinness World Record for the most insect tattoos on his body (a total of 176), as well as another record for the most human bone tattoos at 139.

Prior to his passing, Genest was involved with the Home Depot Canada Foundation, an organization that aims to bring awareness to youth homelessness.

Per iHeartRadio, Genest found work as a model after being featured in the Gaga’s aforementioned music video, modeling for magazines such as GQ, Vanity Fair, and Vogue Hommes.

May he rest in peace.


Anfisa Arkhipchenko: Caught LYING About Nude Camgirl Video?!

In part two of the 90 Day Fiance Tell All special, Anfisa got grilled about a camgirl video that made the rounds on the internet.

Anfisa has given direct answers about her breast implants recently, but she was clearly not comfortable with this conversation.

In fact, she continues to claim that the girl in the video is not her, but merely a lookalike.

Whether they’re called reunions or tell all specials, these are often the highlights of any given season of reality shows.

This time, Anfisa was pressed about the surfacing of a camgirl video of a girl who looks so much like her that, if it’s not Anfisa, some suggest perhaps they were twins separated at birth.

“I’ve seen a bunch of people sending me screen shots and videos with a girl that really looks like me,” Anfisa admits on camera.

“But it’s not,” Anfisa insists.

Even some of her fellow 90 Day Fiance castmates suggest that they saw it, but that does not lessen her denials.

Anfisa goes on to say that she has “Never done that.”

Fans naturally wondered if Jorge recognizes his wife’s naked body in the camgirl video.

“No,” Jorge says. But he doesn’t leave it at that.

“I have seen this other girl that they sent pictures of and they posted up pictures and videos of,” Jorge admits. “Some porn actress.”

He says that last part almost dismissively. Is he protesting too much?

“But,” Jorge says. “It’s not my wife.”


Now, obviously, there is zero shame in being a camgirl or in doing any other type of sex work.

So many are tempted to accept Anfisa and Jorge’s denials at face value. Why would they lie?

However, some cyber sleuths on social media compared the camgirl footage and the casting video in which Anfisa applied for 90 Day Fiance.

As you’ll see in the photos below, it appears that Anfisa and her alleged doppelganger have the same furniture … and also use the same camera angles.

Take a look at this wildly non-flattering photo of Anfisa as she applies for 90 Day Fiance.

Anfisa Arkhipchenko 90 Day Fiance Casting Pic

A perfect storm of her makeup and the lighting and the camera quality makes Anfisa’s face look computer-generated in such a way that she appears to be less from Moscow and more from the Uncanny Valley.

(Say what you will about Anfisa, but she really is a pretty girl in real life)

But don’t let her face (or cleavage) distract you in this shot, because you should notice two things.

One, that cabinet in the corner appears to be the same one that you see in the .gif that you can see above.

Two, look at the couch (or perhaps a day bed) on which Anfisa is seated. Now, look at this piece of furniture from the camgirl video.

The lighting is very different, for better or for worse, but it appears that both pieces of furniture have the same upholstery. It’s also pretty much the same camera angle.

(We should note that the cabinet also appears in the uncropped version of this image, but, for perhaps obvious reasons, we cropped the photo)

So … is someone trying to sabotage Anfisa’s semi-happiness by using a conspicuous lookalike in a wildly boring camgirl video staged with lookalikes of her furniture?

Or is Anfisa just intent on denying that she has a job so ubiquitous that almost everyone knows someone who has done it?

As we said, there is nothing shameful about cam work. And Anfisa wouldn’t even be the first reality star find that she has a sex tape out there.

(She’d be far from the first, in fact)

If this really is footage of Anfisa from before she came to the U.S. … it’s a shame that she’s doubling down on her denials. It’s totally her business, but it could be a teaching moment for people who condemn sex work.

If this isn’t Anfisa but just someone who looks like her and also has similar furniture in a similar arrangement … is Anfisa in danger?

Is someone Single White Female-ing Anfisa?


McDonald’s Workers Pummel Customer in Brutal Beatdown Video!

If you buy a water cup, you're really not supposed to get soda with it. Anywhere, including McDonald's.

Some employees, it seems, take this policy much more seriously than others.

Because soda-theft is apparently what prompted a couple of McDonald's employees to deliver an epic beatdown to a customer. And you can see it all in the video and .gifs that we've included.

Mcdonalds fight still

(Note: this still image is worth seeing on its own, but we made .gifs of some highlights below)

In a video posted on Wednesday night, several unidentified persons were involved in a brawl at an undisclosed McDonald's.

A customer runs, tossing what appears to be a milkshake and then a tray behind her, perhaps in an effort to slow or deter the tall employee who is pursuing her.

Her efforts are unsuccessful.

The taller employee appears to corner her against a table and, as they say, wail on her with her fists.

The customer's efforts to fight back do not appear to be successful. She gets flung across the aisle and onto a table like a rag doll.

Mcdonalds fight 02

We have to show you the censored version of this brutal pummeling, folks. 

The obscenities are one thing, but the unidentified customer gets such a thrashing that her boob pops out and flops around everywhere.

(Since we do not know her identity, we also cannot verify her age)

Her breast popped out because her top, appropriate for this unspeakably hot summer weather, is less than ideal for a knock-down, drag-out fight.

Comics artists who like to draw superheroes wearing what looks like a few ribbons should take note: it is not realistic combat attire.

Mcdonalds fight 03

TMZ reports that this McDonald's fight was apparently all started after the customer tried to use a water cup to steal soda from the soda dispenser.

We have to assume that there was some escalation between "ma'am you need to buy a soda" and the absolutely ghastly display of violence caught on video.

It sounds like the customer may have insulted the taller employee's mother, though honestly, a lot of what's said in the video is difficult if not impossible to understand.

We're hesitant to say who started it without knowing the whole story, especially since it appears that people are committing some crimes — in addition to workplace violations.

Mcdonalds fight 04

Most of us, if we were lifted into the air and slammed into a table, might try to end the fight.

A couple of others try to intervene, and another employee moves the customer away while also restraining her.

The customer, who is tiny but appears to be 100% ready to fight, struggles to escape the shorter employee's grasp.

It appears that the shorter employee loses her patience because she responds with some hair-pulling and is shown delivering some blows of her own.

Mcdonalds fight 05

Even after things appear to be settled — again — the customer grabs what looks to be an aluminum chair and begins to charge towards the taller employee.

Folks, please do not get into fights. And if you just escaped a fight in which you were decidedly on the losing side, do not try to start things up again.

McDonald's is not a buffet — do not go back for seconds.

Thankfully, the taller employee is able to diffuse this situation — sort of — by confiscating the chair.

(She just takes it from her)

Mcdonalds fight 06

Again, there is so much that we do not know. There is even — as always — technically a possibility that a group of friends staged all of this to go viral.

But … we somehow doubt it. This looks very real.

Fight choreographers for television shows should take note.

We want to stress again that we do not know who the original aggressor may have been in this conflict.

We can only imagine what is going through the minds of McDonald's corporate as they watch this video go viral.

Hey, it's not the worst McDonald's content that's ever spread over social media.
