‘It’s not real’: Fans are accusing Kendall Jenner of altering her now infamous Skims lingerie photo

The Kardashian-Jenner family is no stranger to Photoshop fails. The reality-TV family has been called out for more photo-editing mishaps that it’s nearly impossible to keep track. Unfortunately, their latest blunder — courtesy of Kendall Jenner — is one that fans are not letting slide.

On Feb. 12, the 25-year-old model took to social media to share a lingerie selfie taken while shooting a Skims campaign alongside her sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. The photo quickly went viral, but not for the reasons she had probably hoped.

Initially, fans seemed engrossed by Jenner’s thin, signature runway model figure. Followers quickly took to Twitter suggesting that the photo could be harmful to girls and women who look up to her and scolded her for setting unrealistic beauty standards for her impressionable fan base.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this but stop comparing yourself to Kendall Jenner,” one person tweeted. “She has money, surgery, lighting, photographers, editors, nutritionists, personal trainers, makeup artists etc. You have an iPhone camera. She looks unreal but that’s her job.

The conversation snowballed so much that Jenner, herself, tweeted, trying to empathize with her fans and soften the blow.

I am an extremely lucky girl. appreciative of all that I have. But I want you to know i have bad days too and that I hear you! You are beautiful just the way you are! It’s not always as perfect as it may seem,” she wrote.

While her message may have come from a good place, it didn’t do much to quiet the chatter online. Fans continued to voice their concerns, with some even as skinny-shaming the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star.

As the photo continued to make its rounds online, however, fans have now alleged that the photo must be digitally altered.
