Kylie Jenner Was Just Called Out for Photoshopping Her Friend’s Thighs on Instagram
In case you didn't already know, Kylie (Billionaire) Jenner is living her best life. Unfortunately, she isn't doing the best job photoshopping the highlight reel, and her Instagram followers aren't above putting her on blast.
On July 14, the beauty mogul and a few of her closest girlfriends (plus Stormi), boarded a private plane and set off for what looks like a fabulous, flashy vacation in Turks and Caicos. (Would you expect anything less?)
When you combine the high-waisted bikinis, coconut cocktails, boat excursions, and sandy photoshoots, and #KylieSkinSummerTrip looked picture-perfect from afar. But one photo, in particular, stood out to her followers for all the wrong reasons.
It's a photo of Jenner standing alongside Anastasia "Stassie" Karanikolaou in matching dresses, and if you were to quickly glance at the photo while scrolling through your feed, you probably wouldn't notice anything awry. Upon closer observation, though, the difference in the size of Stassie's left thigh, from her right, is a bit conspicuous.
A handful of Jenner's 140 million followers caught on to the photoshop fail quickly and sounded off their disapproval in the comments.
"I'll come back and check this later when the rest of the legs finished uploading," one user wrote.
"Can't handle these photoshops lately. You two are beautiful regardless. Quit editing the photos for real," wrote another.
Whether or not Jenner and Karanikolaou's glamour shot was actually photoshopped, the world may never know. However, this isn't the first time Jenner's fans called her out on a photoshop fail.
The youngest Jenner has been known to tweak photos of her physique, but she's certainly not alone in the habit. Mariah Carey has been called out for photoshopping parts of her body on more than one occasion, and Britney Spears was recently accused of photoshopping her waist in a photo reminiscent of the singer's "Baby One More Time" days, reports Metro UK.
Conversely, there are a handful of celebrities who've spoken out against photoshop, and other editing tools that can be used to alter their images. In December 2018, Chrissy Teigen opened up to Elle UK about photoshopping stretch marks.
"Everyone Photoshops them out," Teigen told the publication. "It's insane, and I don't want anyone to feel like they're the only ones [with stretch marks]."
Lena Dunham has also been vocal about her feelings toward photoshopping (on social media and otherwise). In March of 2016, Dunham came across a spread she'd shot with Spanish Mag in 2013, only she hardly recognized the woman staring back at her. The publication had run a retouched photo of the actress. Livid, Dunham and took to Instagram, as well as her lifestlye blog, Lenny Letter, to express her concerns.
"I'm not sure what it was about this particular image that set me off," wrote Dunham at the time. "I wanted to tell people, loudly: 'That's not my body!'"
Regardless of what you choose to see or believe with this Jenner pic, Kylie doesn't seem to be commenting on the subject, nor does she seem phased by criticisms. (For that, we will give her props, because if anyone is used to blocking out the haters, it's this family.)
