Kim Kardashian accused of photoshopping picture of daughter North to shrink her waist
Kim Kardashian called out for allegedly editing and photoshopping her daughter North's body in a candid family photo taken in Bali
'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian is being accused of photoshopping the body of her five-year-old daughter North in a candid family photograph. However, sources close to Kim are insisting that she would never photoshop her child's appearance. The 38-year-old reality TV star has been accused of darkening her skin, shrinking of her waist, and various other picture edits. People are calling Kim out for allegedly photoshopping her daughter North by lightening her skin tone and also making her waist thinner. An Instagram account '@fakegirlsf***ya' was the first to catch the edits which were made on a recent picture that Kim had shared along with her two children.
As reported by DailyMail, a source close to Kim shared that the controversial picture had been reposted to Kim's account directly from a fan site and she had not made any sort of edits on the picture. "Kim sometimes reposts images from her fan sites. This was one of those times. The paparazzi photo was altered via the fan site," the source shared.
The source added that the mother of three would never change or alter the appearance of her daughter and said, "She would never photoshop North to alter her weight". In the questionable photograph, the beauty mogul can be seen crouching with one of her arms around Saint as she holds on to North's hand with the other. The picture was clicked when the family was vacationing in Bali earlier this month.
The photograph has very obviously been edited and altered via a filter used to make the background look less green and also the children's clothes to appear less neon. The change in tone also made it seem like the skin color of the children had been altered. People have slammed Kim for altering her child's skin tone as it seems to appear lighter than usual though this change could be a result of the kind of filter that was used on the picture. In the original picture, it also looks like North's stomach is sticking out a bit more as she is standing next to her mother but in the edited picture, it looks like North's stomach had been thinned and smoothed.
It is unclear what Kim intended with this picture as commenters chose sides. Most people were in agreement that the skin lightening was a result of the dulling of colors. One person commented saying, "She lowered the saturation. That's about it". When it came to North's stomach being edited, people who believed the edits were in absolute shock and took to expressing their sentiments.
"Kids who are chubby are the cutest. No need to edit...gosh Kim...What's wrong with you!" one woman wrote. While another added, "Can't believe she photoshopped her daughter's stomach". Some people called Kim out for prioritizing her vanity instead of posting a picture of her children looking good. A fan commented, "She only even posted the picture because of how she looks in it. Saint isn't even looking and North doesn't look happy."
