Fans act surprised as a TikTok user exposes reality star Kim Kardashian’s latest Instagram post in THIS Photoshop comparison.
Kim posed at a poolside in her most recent Instagram post, showcasing her latest product, the Beats Fit Pro collection. Fans praised the “KKW Beauty” founder for providing “fire” looks, but TikTok users only noticed one thing out of place in the photo.
Kim’s obvious photo manipulation in her shoulder and muscle area, making her appear skinnier in the photo, was debunked by a TikTok user (@caroline in thecity). The video demonstrates the differences between Kim’s posted photo and the more natural-looking reverted photo. The water behind her shoulders appeared less warped after she used the liquify tool, according to the TikTok user.
The TikTok was captioned by the user, who then used a series of hashtags related to media literacy:
“Nerd out with me and test your media literacy skills! Can you tell what is fake in this image?”
Following the TikTok video, fans and detractors comment in the comments section and on Twitter. In response to the original poster, one user stated:
“The fact that I would never have noticed but it’s painfully obvious after the fact,”
and another stated:
“I love that you flip back and forth it’s so helpful.”
Netizens chastise the reality star for using photoshopped images to promote their beauty line.
However, some Twitter users defend the reality star’s photoshopped posts, pointing out hypocrisy among critics.
Many netizens have been pointing out unrealistic photos of the Kardashians for years, so the mother of four is no stranger to Photoshop accusations.
Kim recently dismissed rumors that she had edited out her belly button in a photo, calling the claims “dumb.” In another rumor, fans accuse Kim of photoshopping ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson’s jawline, to which Kim responds with a live photo from the same angle.
As of now, the reality star has not responded to rumors that her neck and shoulder were Photoshopped in the poolside photo.
