The Facebook profile of Zavala Maggy Marilyn, a woman in Mexico who appears to have a heavy methamphetamine addiction, has captivated Facebook users
Marilyn has posted countless pictures where she appears to be smoking meth
A 2014 article alleges Marilyn has schizophrenia and gave away her unregistered 2-month-old baby
Rumors have spread that Marilyn is a human trafficking victim and that she is dead but there is no evidence to support either theory
In one of the stranger viral trends, Facebook users seem to have become captivated with an account with countless pictures of a woman using methamphetamine and quite possibly making a living as a prostitute. After multiple pictures and posts went viral, Zavala Maggy Marilyn has become a mystery to many.
According to her profile, Marilyn lives in Chetumal, Mexico, located in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It is hard to tell if that is where Marilyn currently lives. The last post on her page is from October 2 and has led some to believe Marilyn is dead. However, others in the comment section have argued that is not true. The post appears to be poorly written in Spanish, so a Facebook and Google translation is loose at best.

I hope not to cause trouble to anyone and that this message reach the people indicated.. very good night
People have also chimed in to say that the drugs are not the only thing to blame as Marilyn allegedly has schizophrenia, a claim that very well could be true. It appears that Marilyn’s real name is Marilin Guadalupe Zavala Rodríguez and her story could be much darker than what her Facebook shows.
A 2014 article from Noticaribe claims that Marilyn gave away her unregistered 2-month-old child. Marilyn was 21-years-old when she allegedly gave her child away to a cartel. The article also states that Marilyn has schizophrenia and was abusive towards her grandmother.
Some have scrolled through Marilyn’s Facebook to do a before and after comparison. After seeing countless pictures of Marilyn smoking what appears to be meth from a glass pipe and selfies with different men in the back of semi trucks, social media users feel it necessary to find something that explains what exactly went wrong in this young woman’s life.
Some have spread rumors that Marilyn was actually trying to send a message through her Facebook that she is a prisoner of human trafficking. While it is a grand theory, it is highly unlikely. It would be very unusual for a human trafficking victim to have access to a Facebook account. In reality, Marilyn appears to be a woman with a mental illness that got caught up in a terrible drug addiction.
Due to how cheap and easy it is to manufacture, meth has quickly become the drug of choice for major distributors and users alike. The manufacturers benefit from the cheap start-up cost and the ability to set up a lab almost anywhere and the users get a much longer lasting high than compared to cocaine or crack.
It would seem Facebook users are not the only ones interested in Marilyn’s life. Multiple comment threads on Marilyn’s page are being bombed with the “F” comment. For those who are not familiar, the comment is a reference to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare where you are forced to pay respects to a dead soldier by pressing F. As reddit user RancidCrayon explains, the action was heavily mocked due to “how forced and emotionless it feels.” The presence of the F comments suggests Marilyn’s profile has spread to areas of the Web outside of Facebook, making this one of the strangest viral trends to hit social media.
