DOCTOR: Glitter Bombing Is A Health Hazard

Washington, DC-based optometrist Stephen Glasser says that “glitter bombing” can be detrimental to its victims because the glitter can scratch a person’s eyes and cause infection. It could also be inhaled and cause a sinus infection “because it’s literally an object … that highly irritates the tissue.” Glasser explains that glitter could “stop that individual from performing their daily duties. Between the pain and the changes to their vision, it would certainly stop them from doing their work properly.” The Secret Service has charged a Colorado student who attempted to glitter-bomb Mitt Romney with creating a disturbance, throwing a missile, and an unlawful act on school property.
