Khloé Kardashian bashed by Instagram follower over terrible photo touch up

Celebrities and photoshop go hand in heavily altered hand.

It’s not anything new. Even your favorite old school stars had their photos manipulated in some way. Artists would spend hours removing spots and getting rid of wrinkles.

Most people used “retoucher machines,” which backlight and vibrate a negative photo for someone to come in with a pencil and smooth the image out.

So yeah, nobody has ever been perfect. It’s just easier to do it yourself now thanks to computers and handy iPhone apps.

Case in point: the outrage over Khloé Kardashian’s latest Instagram picture — which may or may not be photoshopped, but it certainly looks… different.

If anything, the overly ‘shopped pic will draw a lot of attention to whatever product Khloé is advertising.

That said, whatever comes in that box probably won’t give you the body of a Kardashian — pre- or post-photo editing.

And because it’s the internet, people weren’t afraid to call her out in the comments.

OMG, you guys, you can’t just tell someone they have a weird face.


This is the equivalent of waving your friend over, pointing at someone’s face and asking “WTF?”

This happens to me often…


Some fans are hoping it is photoshopped, because they are concerned about Khloé’s health.

This… I guess is kind of a nice thought?


Her transition into a witch is almost complete, as she has started to terrify the villagers.

Next step? Candy house in the middle of the woods, for some reason.


Larries’ (multiple “Larry”) Bitch can’t believe what she is seeing.

But this isn’t even the first time Khloé has photoshopped a picture.

In May of 2016, her fans called her out for photoshopping the image on Instagram, and she responded by uploading the original, unedited picture.

 

Kardashian fessed up she edited the image because of a car accident that occurred when she was 16. She said,

Soulja Boy making more enemies before we even settle into the new year

Soulja Boy is making a lot of enemies. Aside from a perplexing internet beef with Chris Brown, the Atlanta native got into a fight while streaming on Instagram Live in Compton, Tuesday (Jan. 3).

In the video, SB shouts out his gang affiliation and declares that he won’t catch “no fades” because he’s worth too much money. Seconds later, the 26-year-old rapper is squaring up to fight another guy.

From the sounds it, his phone may have gotten snatched as well.

Holy father, Pope Francis now on Instagram

Itching to know how Pope Francis jazzes up his #OOTD? The wait is over, friends.

Francis made his Instagram debut on Saturday, posting his first two photos under the newly-minted handle, @Franciscus.

He started things out with his signature line, “Pray for me.” It was the same phrase he used to introduce himself on Twitter after his election in 2013.

Francis’ foray onto the popular photo sharing site was reportedly timed to coincide with the three year anniversary of his inauguration as spiritual head of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics.

The Instagram account is part of the Vatican’s efforts to reach out to Catholics around the world, particularly the younger generation. In a message for the church’s World Communications Day, Francis called the Internet a “gift of God” that can help the human family come closer together.

“Access to digital networks entails a responsibility for our neighbour whom we do not see but who is nonetheless real and has a dignity which must be respected,” Francis said in the message. “The internet can be used wisely to build a society which is healthy and open to sharing.”

The Vatican has already established a presence on Instagram under the handle @newsva, which has close to 80,000 followers and posts photos of Francis’ daily activities and interactions with his flock.

In February, the Vatican posted an image of Francis meeting with Instagram’s CEO and co-founder Kevin Systrom. Systrom reportedly gave the pope a curated book of 10 Instagram images to prove that images can “unite people across borders, cultures and generations.”

The pope hasn’t yet created an official account on Facebook. Vatican officials are reportedly worried that it would be harder to monitor abusive comments on that network.

However, Pope Francis is already a force to be reckoned with on Twitter, with accounts that tweet out messages in nine different languages. He has nearly 9 million followers on his English account and more than 11 million on his Spanish account.

So far, the pope’s Twitter feed has been heavy on text. Only three of his more than 700 tweets on his English account are of images or videos.

Will his Instagram account simply be a first-person version of @newsva? Will we see more of his trademark selfies? Will the Virgin Mary forever be his #WCW?

We can’t wait to find out!

Barbie doll wearing Muslim outfits trends on Instagram

Barbie has had another makeover. This time as a hijab-wearing Muslim.

It was only last month that Mattel gave Barbie a dramatic transformation with a variety of skin tones and different body types, including adding curves to her impossibly slender frame.

Now a Nigerian medical scientist has taken Instagram by storm since she began posting images of a hijab-wearing Barbie doll a few weeks ago.

We are used to seeing Barbie scantily-clad in denim hotpants and skimpy tops, but with her colorful headscarves, flowing abayas and full-length couture dresses, Hijarbie is far more covered up.

Haneefa Adam, pictured, says she was inspired to create the Hijarbie account after coming across the Barbie Style Instagram page.

She told CNN: “I thought I had not seen Barbie dressed in a hijab before so I decided to open an Instagram account and dressed Barbie up in the clothes that I made. I thought it was really important for a doll to be dressed like how I would be.”

The 24-year-old, who recently completed a Masters in Pharmacology in the UK, describes Hijarbie as a “modest doll” — one that offers Muslim girls a relatable role model.

“It has roots in my religion and cultural identity. The way Barbie dresses is very skimpy and different and there’s nothing wrong with it. I just wanted to give another option for Muslim girls like me.

She added: “I want to use the Instagram page to create an identity for her similar to Barbie.”

The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive with requests from all over the world to buy the dolls. Hijarbie now has 19,400 followers on the social network.

Adam plans to expand heraccount to include dolls of color. Previously she was unable to locate any on sale in Nigeria and has had to order them from abroad.

“I couldn’t find the different types in Nigeria (no Amazon or eBay or anything),” she says. “I’d have loved to dress up a black doll myself too. I’ve ordered for some internationally and they’ll soon be here.”

But despite the account’s popularity, Adam says she has received some negative comments from people who think that Muslim women who wear the veil are “oppressed,” a misconception she wants to fix.

“People think that when Muslim women cover up they are forced to. (The) majority of us are not,” she says.

“We want to cover up and express our religion. But a lot of Muslims don’t cover their hair and it doesn’t make them any less of a Muslim.

“I think this is a great platform to try and get the Muslim identity to the world and correct some misconceptions.”
