Reality vs Instagram: Kim Kardashian accused of photoshopping Pete Davidson’s nose and jawline
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s PDA pictures caused a storm after the former shared them on her Instagram page. But the photographs are also making headlines for another reason. It has been alleged that the 41-year-old socialite had photoshopped her new lover’s pictures for social media.
The accusations first appeared on the Instagram page @ProblematicFame. As per the account’s bio, it is “spreading awareness on how instagram can impact beauty standards • posts are not accusations.” @ProblematicFame reportedly shared on its Story a now-disappeared collage of Davidson, which included a picture of the comedian looking to the side on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and a close-up of him from Kim’s post. The account wrote "reality" over the first photo of the 28-year-old and “instagram” on the other one.
The collage apparently tried to make the point that Kim or her editing team may have removed the bump out of Davidson’s nose and also defined his jawline. @ProblematicFame’s post attracted a lot of attention online with a user tweeting: “Well he has been with the Kardashians for a minute so it’s possible he had a little work done. 😂😂😂😂.” Writer Sophie Ross tweeted, “I would cry if someone gave me a photoshopped nose job and jawline sculpting.” “Did Kim photoshop him or did he actually visit her plastic surgeon 🧐,” another user asked.

Somebody pointed out: “And cleaned up his bags under his eyes. He don’t look like that photo lol.” Another noted: “I think a little cosmetic dentistry too.” A user remarked: “He got new lips too!” while a second added: “and lip filler 😳.” “I just noticed the nose. Nevermind. It’s obviously photoshopped,” another tweet read.

The controversy comes at a time when Kim has also been accused of making inappropriate remarks about Kylie Jenner’s body when she was pregnant with her second baby. In the premiere episode of ‘The Kardashians’, the mother-of-four told her younger sister, “I think it’s a boy,” before continuing, “You’re skinnier this way, you’re prettier than you were last time,” which left the 24-year-old and their mother Kris Jenner stunned.
Kris then asked: “How could she be anyway prettier?” Kim replied: “The girls take the beauty to give it to themselves. The boys know what’s up and they let you be a little bit prettier.”
Several users called out her remarks on Reddit with one commenting: “Kim’s just all about putting people down, any woman that is smarter/prettier/etc. she HAS to put down. My siblings talk like that to eo and they laugh but the second I do half that to my sister, she cries like Kim.” Another said: “The relationship these women will have with their teenage daughter will be…interesting Kim and Khloe feel like the moms who compete against their daughter.” “It sounds like Kim is trying too hard to sound cooler and it’s annoying and hurtful. She’s starting to sound like the mom from mean girls in the worst way possible. I think she thinks it’s cute when In reality she sounds super shallow and just flat out weird,” a comment added.
