HOUSTON – You hear about people doing stupid things, but this one takes the cake. Or in this case, the Cheetos.


A Houston woman, 23-year-old Deby Mejia, is accused of beating a child over some Cheetos!


Authorities in Harris County say the 10-year-old girl was in Deby`s care after her mom got deported to Honduras. One day while Deby was at the store, the girl went to a neighbor`s apartment and got some Cheetos. When Deby got home and saw her eating the snack, she reportedly got so angry, she beat the girl with an extension cord and banged her head on the floor.


Luckily, someone at the school noticed the girl`s bruises, so all this came to light. Deby`s now in jail. Here`s to hoping they don`t serve her any Cheetos now!


That`s how this Cheeto-hater became our Dumbass of the Day!
