Kendall Jenner is getting called out for her "insanely damaging” use of photoshop on her social media after fans discovered the comparison between paparazzi pics and what the model was sharing online.
Fans of the reality tv star are expressing their frustration once again after they noticed that Kendall appears to regularly photoshop her waist to make it look smaller.
One of the most noticeable comparisons seems to have been captured on the same day, as Kendall is wearing the same green swimsuit in the social media photo. In her social media post, her waist appears slimmer and more accentuated.
Listen to the TOTT podcast to hear Steph from The Edge Workday explain why she's so gutted about how the Kardashians use 'skinny' these days:
Many people stated in a recent Reddit post that viewing the pics side by side made them feel " very sad," especially given Kendall's influence on young girls through her social media pages.
One disappointed fan wrote: “It's insanely damaging. It's really really damaging because without corset training (which in itself can be unsafe if not done properly) how would you ever achieve a tiny waist like that without surgery or photoshop? It's so accepted as normal and it's sad.”
Another chimed in writing: “It’s often very obvious around the waist area, but people are so used to photoshop and filters that they apparently have no idea of what’s anatomically correct or not.”
“It's an obsession and a curse once u start using photoshop/ filters U don't like how u look without them,” wrote a third agreed.
This all comes after years of editing her waist to appear smaller online.
Kendall Jenner ignited outrage last year when she was exposed for allegedly photoshopping images that triggered considerable body concern among fans.
The model had participated in a photo shoot for her sister Kim Kardashian's Skims company and had posted many photos on Instagram of herself wearing a "tiny thong."
At the time, many women claimed that viewing the photographs had made them uncomfortable with their own bodies, with one fan tweeting, "How can I ever be ok with my body when Kendall Jenner is out here looking like that?"
However, a popular Instagram account called @problematicfame quickly pointed out how different Kendall's figure looked in BTS video footage from the shoot compared to the photographs she shared on her Instagram.
They wrote: “This photo is very photoshopped. Kendall is obviously very gorgeous but these are not her real proportions, nor are they anybody's. please don’t compare yourself too heavily to edited images. even Kendall doesn’t look like this irl.”
They also accused Kendall of overusing a “smoothing” filter as they said that the skin around her bikini line looked “ridiculous.” They added: “Nobody looks like that. Gals have lines, razor bumps, discolouration, etc. Nobody is completely smooth down there.”
It’s important to remember that what you see on social media is not always as it seems. Of course, we know this already, but it’s always useful to have a reminder.
All bodies are beautiful!
