What’s the point of having a social media account if you can’t use it to convince strangers of your incredible abs? I’m asking this as a serious question. If you can’t show your followers that you’ve worked hard for your abs whenever you lift your shirt, why are you even on Instagram?
It’s a platform where you can shamelessly post self-aggrandizing photos without scrutiny. Well, probably some scrutiny. We’ve seen a few curated Instagram posts by now and because of that we can’t help but inspect each and every detail. In this case, it looks like she might have scuplted her abs post-production.
Pretty in Pink
There's nothing like spending your time in the great outdoors with your man by your side! Of course, you want to make sure you look your best, just in case the perfect photo opportunity presents itself. This girl opted for a skin-tight pink dress and a glamorous pair of sunglasses.
But, alas, when it came time to upload the picture to social media, she couldn't help but try and make a couple of small, minor tweaks. Sadly, they came out way too major for us to not notice. One way to tell that this photo has been distorted is to look at her shadow.
Say No to Filters
Being an Instagram influencer sounds like a pretty easy job, right? You just torment your followers, take an endless amount of selfies, add some hefty filters, and you're famous! At least, that's how it used to be. But now it seems like being an Instagram personality is getting weirder and there's a reason for that ...
It's easy to make fun of the often-absurd world of Instagram influencers and their evolving appearances. But in their defense, it's a difficult gig to maintain. Not only are people looking less like themselves, but they're also looking less like real people. Instead, they look more like statues made out of wax.
If someone approached you twenty years ago saying there was a pair of magical jeans that could shrink your waist and grow your booty, you'd probably say, "Thanks, but I haven't financially recovered from the last scam yet." It would have sounded ridiculous back then, but now with Photoshop, it's a reality.
In the magical world of apps and Instagram, you too, could look like this. With a little tweak over here and some adjusting over there. But it seems she may have been a little too excited and edited her behind a bit too much, making this photo less convincing than a pair of magical jeans.
Bad Role Model
This beautiful model who is also a trained dancer posed for a picture while holding this very difficult position and for that we applaud her. But, when it came time to post the image to her social media account, she decided she needs to look even slimmer than she already is.
Her torso area seems to have shrunk so much that anyone who looks at this picture would know there's no way that could be her actual body. It also seems she's gotten so good at editing her photo as there's no sign of photo manipulation when you look at the background.
