The Slaton Sisters began their career by making videos for their YouTube account. When they became a little popular, TLC signed them up for a reality TV show. However, the sisters have been fighting trolls for years now. Back in 2015, Amy received many negative comments as people called her out for getting social security. People thought that she was getting these benefits for being fat. She was criticized for being lazy and using the taxpayers’ money and things like that.
Fed up with the negativity, Amy decided to reveal her eye condition. In a 2015 video, Slaton reveals that she does not get social security benefits for being overweight. In fact, she is on disability since she has toxoplasmosis. The disease mainly occurs by eating undercooked contaminated meat or after being exposed to infected cat feces. The infection can cause severe problems, especially for pregnant women and children born from them. The 1000 Lb Sisters star shares that her mother, while she was pregnant, had cleaned cat litter and didn’t know it had the parasite. As a result, Amy was born with poor eyesight.
