According to some netizens, Kim Kardashian’s family photo in her recent social media post was edited.

Kim uploaded a photo dump from their Christmas Eve gathering to Instagram. She was seen posing with her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sisters, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner, in the photos.

They were all dressed formally in red, white, nude, and black. However, their family photo sparked controversy because many people believed it was edited for a variety of reasons, including Kendall’s feet and Kylie’s position.

One commented:

“I’m confused why are people photoshopped to look like they were together [in] pictures?”

Another added:

“Why though? It’s so hard to take a picture together? Isn’t it harder to photoshop each and every one in? This family is baffling.”

A third person wrote with a laughing emoji:

“Why does everyone look photoshopped into the photo?”

A fourth user added:

“Y’all look photoshopped in. Especially [you], Kim. From another picture.”

A fifth commenter wrote:

“This is so photoshopped, Kyle was added to this.”

According to one, “everyone looks miserable” in the photo. Several people also noticed that Kourtney appeared to be unhappy or depressed in the photo. Another remarked jokingly that “they look either photoshopped or after a fight” in the photo.

It wasn’t the first time Kim had been accused of doctoring family photos. She sparked similar rumors earlier this year after posting photos of her daughter Chicago, 4, and her niece True, 4, in Disneyland. Many people speculated that Khloe’s daughter was edited into the photos, and the Good American founder appeared to confirm this when she said in April that she took True to Disneyland “for the first time” for her birthday.

Khloe tweeted:

“Welllppp I f–ked this one up. Anyways … let’s focus on something else. Our show, [‘The Kardashians’], airs in a few days.”

Instead of True, the Skims founder chose to share the original photo, which featured Chicago and Kylie’s 4-year-old daughter Stormi. She explained her decision to replace Stormi with True in the caption of her Instagram Stories.

Kim explained:

“The original pics were Stormi! However, I asked @kyliejenner if I could post them, and she said she wasn’t really feeling posting at the moment and so I respect that! But it wasn’t going to mess up my IG feed. Chi was wearing pink, and it matched perfectly.”

KKW Beauty founder said:

“You know how much a good aesthetic means to my soul.”

However, Kylie was avoiding social media at the time after her on-again, off-again boyfriend Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival in November 2021 resulted in a mass casualty incident.

Kim continued:

“And I will be damned if Kylie will ruin that for me and mess up my IG grid. So thank you True for taking one for the team! I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal if her own mom questioned if I snuck her to Disneyland for the first time.”
