Professional photographer accuses Kim Kardashian of photoshopping out major muscle in new picture
| Last updated
Kim Kardashian has broken the internet again... and it's not for a good reason.
The American socialite has been accused of editing out a major muscle in her neck by one eagle-eyed TikTokker.
Professional photographer Caroline Ross posted a clip on the social media platform to prove that Kardashian photoshopped out her trapezius muscle in a post on Instagram.
"Kim K is notorious for Photoshopping out her traps," Ross claimed.
"Why? I don't know, maybe it makes her neck look smaller. But this area right here has been Photoshopped out."
Ross went on to point out that the background behind Kardashian appears slightly warped, which is a telltale sign that an image has been edited.
"When we zoom in, we can see that the water pattern behind her here has been warped," she explained.
Ross, who is a fashion photographer from Canada, went on to reverse Kardashian's post-production process by editing the photo back to what it would have looked like originally.
"Using the liquify tool Photoshop, I'm going to now show you what it would look like without the Photoshopping applied to it," she said.
"As you can see, the water reflection in the background starts to look a lot more natural as well, we don't have that warped effect."
In her video, which has now been viewed more than 6.6 million times, Ross showed a comparison between a behind the scenes clip and the image on Instagram.
"Here's the photo that they released. Here is the corrected version. Check out the water patterns in the background," the Vancouver based photographer said, showing off the two images with the reverted original edit now looking much more realistic.
Unsurprisingly, social media users were not impressed with Kim.
One said: "This is actually so not okay. You would think that now that they have daughters they would think about the impact of this more."
A second added: "Well this explains why I never like my shoulder in pictures."
A third shared her brutal reality: "I swear the Kardashian’s Instagrams are why I have body image issues."
The Skims founder replied: "If I’m doing it, it’s attainable."
