Kim Kardashian can't seem to escape accusations of massive 'photoshop fails', making such visible alterations to her figure and face in photos that they look unrealistic. While the reality star has received criticism repeatedly for her 'altered' images on Twitter and Instagram, this time she is in hot water not for photoshopping herself, but her grandmother!

The Kardashians took to social media on Tuesday, July 26 to wish their grandma on her birthday, expressing their love for her. Kim posted a number of photos of herself and her grandmother from different eras of their lives on her Instagram page. She captioned the set of pictures with "The Queen MJ has turned 88 today! Grandma, I am so grateful to have you as someone to look up to and I love you so much." However, some fans noticed that compared to the rest of the set, the first photo — possibly the most recent photo — seemed a little more polished and touched-up.

"Do you think Grandma Kardashian has had any work done? Just a random question. When compared to the family, she appears quite natural". That single post in an online chat room sparked a flurry of responses. One person responded, "Yeah, I think she's natural, but Kim definitely photoshopped her," and another retorted, "There's a 99.999999 percent chance this picture is photoshopped."

Another user asked hypothetically, "Why does grandma look younger now than in the picture from 20 years ago?" while also posting a laughing emoji. And one person said plainly, cutting through any 'implied' jabs, "she blurred out MJ's wrinkles.

MJ has a secret Instagram account

Even though MJ isn't on social media frequently enough to share the posts, Kim, 41, has previously disclosed that MJ has a secret account. In 2020, she posted on Instagram, "My grandma has a creep IG account to see what we're all up to." Kris, her children, and their children adore MJ as a member of the family despite the fact that she does not frequently appear on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'. Audiences adore her for her openness, dry humor, and generosity.
