Kim Kardashian fires back over claims she photoshopped this Instagram post
No matter what is happening in the world, three things will always be certain: death, taxes, and Kim Kardashian's Instagram posts.
So, this Saturday, just like any other day, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted an update on her life for her 109 million followers to enjoy. The caption said, "So ready to March today! @AMarch4OurLives @EveryTown", and was obviously an allusion to the 37-year-old's involvement in the marches for gun regulations that were taking place across the USA.
However, rather than uploading an image of what was going on at the march, or perhaps a snap of the best signs and placards she might have seen, Kim opted for her standard post... a picture of herself.
But, for one reason or another, the Insta Kween decided that she didn't like the image exactly as it was, and replaced with an almost identical version a short while later.
Unfortunately, what Kim didn't notice after the second post was that the right-hand side of her image looked just ever so slightly wrong. Take a look at the edit below, and you'll soon see what we mean:
Notice the bent curb and squished car? Well, so did about a thousand other people - and they all commented on Kim's picture to let her know about it.
"Just me or did anyone else see the squashed car in the back. #photoshopped. Caught you," wrote one follower.
"Photoshop Fail," said another.
"What happened with the car in the back," asked a third.
However, what people might not have noticed is that Kim's jacket went from being a salmon color to a slightly more pinky tone, and her skin appears far less saturated. Basically, it looked like she'd put a filter on it as well as applying some sketchy shopping skills.
But only one half of that is actually true.
In order to explain what really happened, Kim posted a statement on her app. It said:
"I'm seeing online and on news media outlets that I suffered a "Photoshop fail." It's so ridiculous. I reposted a picture on Instagram that a fan had already posted – I only added a filter to it. It looks like the fan mirrored the photo, which is the reason the car looks like that."
And when you realize that Kim's body hasn't actually changed at all between the two pictures, it's obvious that she's telling the truth.
Following that, the reality star and mother-of-threee did actually post a picture of Kanye and North at the march, along with a heartfelt message:
"What an amazing day yesterday to take my daughter to Washington DC to see our future leaders speak," she wrote.
"Having my daughter march along-side her grandfather and parents was a day I hope she remembers forever. I know that the younger generation will vote to change these gun laws that so desperately need to be changed. Hearing these stories yesterday and meeting so many families affected by gun violence was heart breaking and I hope when it comes time to vote we all step up and vote to protect our children."
Well, it just goes to show that sometimes we might be a bit too hasty to judge Kim K - and sometimes her Instagram posts are actually rather sweet and meaningful.
