Update: The soldier depicted in this story, as well as her husband, are no longer serving in the 103d Expeditionary Sustainment Command or the U.S. Army Reserve, according to the Army Reserve Public Affairs Command.
A US Army Soldier is once again giving a great example as to why TikTok is detrimental to the image of servicemembers- this time after she filmed herself getting her anus shaved by her husband.
Marlene Muhonen, a reserve component Soldier with the 103rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command, filmed herself getting her “third brown eye” shaved by her husband.
“Your butt’s too big,” her husband said, “your cheeks weigh ten pounds a piece.”
Muhonen, who has over 23,000 followers on the Communist Party of China-affiliate social media platform which frequently features soldiers in uniform.
In the video, the sergeant grabs her own breast for the camera.
While this video did not achieve her “viral status,” a video featuring her direct supervisor, “SGT Boujee,” has racked up over 800,000 views.
Muhonen’s husband -who is prior active duty and served in the same unit as his wife- appears to work as a security guard in his civilian life.
“He did his time in active duty, and then came to my unit where we met. Everyone wanted him and he’s out now,” she wrote in a TikTok post.
Other videos by Muhonen show members of the 103rd ESC acting unprofessionally in uniform, often clearly showing they don’t want to be photographed while on duty.
Last week, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio urged U.S. Army Secretary Christine Wormuth to enforce the U.S. Department of Defense’s ban on the use of TikTok for recruitment purposes as numerous Army recruiters have built followings on the platform.
Rubio noted the app’s known national security risks and deep connections to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
“Armed with biometric and other personal data, the CCP is able to track, monitor, and collect information on Americans anywhere in the world,” Rubio wrote. “From a military perspective, it can track troop movements, build source networks, or compile biographic profiles on military members for purposes of intelligence collection, exploitation, and manipulation.”
It is unknown if the 103rd ESC is aware of the TikTok account, though it is implied that it isn’t much of a secret.
