Serena Williams (or someone in her camp) was recently busted attempting to photoshop her waist in an Instagram post.
Williams, arguably one of the world’s best athletes, is also one of the most beautiful and recently, People Magazine acknowledged her on their annual ‘Most Beautiful’ list.
The acclaimed tennis player proudly posted a photo from the magazine spread of herself posing in a black one-piece that has come under fire for obvious retouching.
Williams shared the photo above yesterday and several commenters noted that her waist looked a bit weird.
“Your body is amazing, why manipulate it?” said one commenter… another added, “Lay off the Photoshop. You are perfect without it!”
The overall consensus was shock and awe that someone with a body like Serena would feel the need to alter ANYTHING and the comments called her out about it…
It didn’t take long for Serena to correct the problem. About 2 hours after she posted the photoshopped image, it was deleted and replaced with the unretouched version that appeared in the magazine (albeit in black & white).
The spread in the magazine was shot in color, and while many originally blamed the magazine for the poor photoshop job, it seems the culprit may have been Serena herself… (or someone who runs her IG account).
