Tori Spelling is under fire for posting a picture which the fans believe to be photoshopped. In the now-deleted post, the actress is seen wearing a red bathing suit with a message on body positivity. Tori wanted people to know that it is important for one to love their body and taking from her own experience after welcoming her fifth son with husband, Dean McDermott, the actress wanted to share inspirational words with her fans.

“After having my 5th baby I have to admit my body didn’t bounce back the way it did with the first 4! But I’ve been working at it and eating and playing to live my best life and I feel like its showing!” she captioned the picture. Tori also thanked her husband for making her feel pretty in the way she looked. “Back in a one piece minus the coverup or shorts finally! Part of this transformation in progress is my husband makes me feel great about myself no matter what weight I’m at. And, I’m finally loving seeing my hard work start to pay off! Thanks, Body! We Got this…” she wrote. 

Tori concluded the post with a  “#bodylove' hashtag. While Tori's idea was to make people love their body, the picture backfired on her as many fans were quick to suggest that the actress had photoshopped the image in order to make herself look slimmer. Many pointed out that by photoshopping the image Tori was contradicting her own idea of loving one's body.

"Why is this Photoshopped?? If you’re proud and comfortable you don’t need Photoshop hun, we as women need to empower each other not tear us down, much love and God Bless,” one comment read. While another added, " Sorry Tori. I think you are great but the Photoshop is not… it so easy to see that it’s not the real you… please if you say you are not ashamed of you[r] body post a true pic."

Another expressed their anger and disappointment as the comment read, " This is the worst edited photo ever… don’t talk about body image and being positive when you clearly edited the photo." While another chipped in by adding, "She did bad on the photoshop. If she is proud of how she looks she should have left the picture as it was. We are all moms and understand it takes time to get back into shape and the struggle continues."

Tori and Dean are parents to Liam, 11, Stella, 10, Hattie, 6, Finn, 5, and Beau, 15 months. The couple recently celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary in Hawaii last month amidst talks of bankruptcy, piling debts and Tori's own health issues. She even took to Instagram to share a picture from their vacation. “Paradise is upon us!” she wrote. “As a mom of 5, I don’t know life without my kiddos. But, sometimes it’s important to take time and remember the whole reason those 5 little blessings are in our lives… and that is a mad love that started with my soulmate [Dean McDermott].”
