Oneal Ron Morris, the transgendered woman accused of performing back alley surgeries and injecting substances like Fix-a-Flat tire sealant and cement into a woman's butt, gave her first, and she says last, interview to Entertainment Tonight last night, and wants you to know "I really am innocent or whatever."
Morris, a Miami Gardens resident, was arrested on November 18th after a mangled patient came forward. Since then, a handful of other victims have come forward to accuse Morris of performing similar procedures, including one who said she had unknown substances injected into her cheeks.
"It sounds bizarre, but how could America feel like a person would even put cement in somebody's bottom? You know, it's just these allegations," Morris told ET in an impromptu interview in a parking lot. "I didn't do any of these things to these people. Just know these people who are lying are ruining my life. That's all I have to say."
ET's full interview is not online, but here's CBS Miami's report, with clips from the interview:

"They keep on lying, but you know the truth will prevail, and you know that's why we have courts and stuff like that," said Morris of her accusers.
"If anybody's the victim, it's definitely me."
We'll have to wait until Morris goes to court and stuff like that to see if the jury comes back with a verdict of innocent or whatever.
