Ivanka Trump accused of photoshopping photo at Taj Mahal to make 'her waist smaller': 'PhotoshopBarbie'
The controversial picture was the one where she posed alone in front of the breathtaking monument
Ivanka Trump is currently facing backlash after she appeared to have photoshopped her photograph where she posed in front of the Taj Mahal, during her visit with her family to India, as netizens pointed out that her waist looked unnaturally thin in the snap. President Donald Trump's elder daughter posted a series of photos from the POTUS' first-ever state visit to India, especially from their visit to the Taj Mahal - one of the seven wonders of the world. "The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!" Ivanka captioned the photos, which she uploaded on Twitter.
The controversial picture, also uploaded on Instagram, was the one where she posed alone, sans her husband, in front of the breathtaking white mausoleum. For the occasion, she had donned a dress patterned with red poppies. The Slate Magazine was the first outlet to point out that the picture in question, looked like it had been tampered with.
"Look closely at the gap between Ivanka’s left arm and torso, and you’ll see that the sliver of rippling water peeking through appears to be much more in focus than the water on either side of her," the outlet pointed out.
The publication went onto ponder if someone had inserted or enlarged the gap in the photograph or somehow “messed around with the photo."
It did ultimately cast doubt on whether the first daughter would go to such lengths just to enhance her slender frame. “But would Ivanka really go through such trouble for a single photo in a series that otherwise doesn’t seem to exhibit any telltale signs of photoshopping?" the report added.
However, soon other eagle-eyed social media users spotted the warped spot in the picture and started accusing Ivanka of photoshopping.
In reply to a user who questioned what the difference was between Ivanka and Hunter Biden, another wrote: "Hunter doesn’t photoshop his photos like Ivanka does, that makes her body look wonky and unnatural. She made her waist smaller. Check out the water between her waist and arm, it is a different colour and texture than the water elsewhere in the background. #PhotoshopBarbie"
Another opined: "Does she have a better Photoshop editor? Either blur the full pool background or sort out Ivanka’s waist/arm gap ... or we might think her waist has been modified..."
Yet a third noted: "Ivanka: can some Photoshop guru please enhance this snap so it's as beautiful as I remember the moment? Snarky PS guy: sure thing!"
