An aesthetic nurse practitioner has insisted she ‘didn’t mean to offend’ after she sparked outrage by reeling off a list of cosmetic surgery procedures that actress Natalia Dyer could undergo.
TikTok star Miranda Wilson, 28, went viral across multiple social media platforms on Sunday after sharing a now-deleted clip in which she detailed the plastic surgery she would give Dyer, 27, as well as sharing an edited image of the results.
Following a fierce backlash from fans of the Stranger Things star, Wilson shared another video on Monday as she called Dyer ‘absolutely stunning’ and explained she was just using the actress as an example to highlight the types of cosmetic procedures available to the public.

Wilson explained: ‘I just wanted to come on here and basically clear the air. I did not mean to offend anyone, including Natalia.
‘I was simply just offering suggestions, not on what you have to do, just on what the possibilities are.
‘As an advanced injector that’s what we do. We look at faces, we assess and look at the possibilities. Not on what you need to do, or what you have to do, they’re simply just options.’
She then went on to use herself as an example as she reeled off her own cosmetic enhancements, revealing that she’d undergone Botox, lip and cheek filler, and a brow lift.

She captioned the clip: ‘Hoping to clear the air that I was not suggesting that Natalia NEEDED any of that work it was just an example.
‘Of course Natalia is absolutely stunning the way she is…that’s why she’s so successful. Her photo was simply an example.
‘Im sorry if peole took that as being mean or rude, that was not my intent at all [sic].’

Shocking: In the original video, Wilson detailed the procedures she would give Dyer as well as sharing an edited image of the results (pictured left before editing and right after Photoshop)
In the original video, Wilson – who works at HēBē Skin Health in Laguna Beach – stated: ‘Okay guys, let’s talk about Natalia Dyer from Stranger Things.
‘First of all, she killed it in Stranger Things. So if I were Natalia’s injector, this is what I would do.’
Wilson believed it would be necessary to start by ‘treating those masseters to help slim the face’ before she would ‘add a bit of chin filler just to help fill out her chin.’
She added that she would ‘add just a little bit to the lips and then we’d get in there and do a little bit of Botox’ and also ‘give her a nice brow lift to help open up her eyes’.

Not cool: Social media users were immediately vocal about their disdain over the video and called out the trend of editing the faces of celebrities online
She then unveiled a picture of Dyer which had been edited to reflect her surgery suggestions, and fans were not impressed to see that the final image completely changed Dyer’s face.
One follower shared the clip on Twitter as they raged: ‘i could never be a celebrity because if someone made a video like this about me i would get violent’
Many were quick to agree as one Twitter user commented: ‘this is an unbelievably gross thing to do omg’.
‘A prime example of giving your opinions when it’s not asked for,’ another added.
One person stated: ‘Social media has done a lot of terrible things, and many are far worse, but popularizing the pervasive idea that beauty means everyone having the exact same face is (imo) up there’.
Another agreed: ‘Sick of these weirdos pushing this agenda that everyone needs to look like they’ve been assembled in the same build a bear factory.’
Furious: Other social media users highlighted how damaging clips of that nature were for impressionable young women
One furious fan added: ‘this is so awful to do to someone, even if Natalia didn’t look absolutely beautiful before.
‘This woman is ILL i feel so bad for all the kids being bombarded with this sick messaging that you need to change everything about your face so you can achieve the Instagram SameFace.’
Another simply commented: ‘This is actually insane in a way I can’t articulate.’
‘Some people are satisfied with their natural looks and be grateful of that. Also, not everyone wants to get a plastic surgery and this isn’t even an educative content,’ another wrote. ‘This is so unnecessary ma’am….’
One person lamented: ‘how are we, women, supposed to love our natural appearance when other women bring us down and then go post on social media love yourself, girl power and feminist quotes?’
Wilson deleted the video following the widespread backlash but is yet to share a comment or apology for the clip.
In a recent interview with The Independent, Dyer previously admitted she finds the pressures of fame ‘difficult to navigate’.
She explained: ‘As a private person, I just feel like, leave people alone – unless you’re talking about their work or what they want to talk about.’
Dyer has famously played Nancy Wheeler on Stranger Things ever since the hit Netflix series premiered in 2015.
The actress is currently in a relationship with her co-star Charlie Heaton, who stars as Jonathan Byers in the wildly popular sci-fi.
