A new
Instagram account is calling out some of the world’s most recognizable
celebrities, including Beyonce, and fashion bloggers who they believe
are guilty of Photoshopping the images that they post on social media.
WePhotoshoppedWhat,
which was launched in November by an anonymous Instagram user,
highlights instances of apparent Photoshopping by pointing out wavy
lines and odd blurring in photos, or posting side-by-side comparisons,
showing the subject in a different image that hasn’t been edited.
And
while many have been quick to praise the unknown Instagram poster for
fighting against the increasing number of social media images that are
edited, some of its most frequently targeted subjects have accused the
account holder of ‘bullying’ and ‘victimizing’ the people that it
features.

‘This account is so mean and unnecessary…’ New York-based fashion blogger Danielle Bernstein, of We Wore What, commented, after she was shamed on the account for the 14th time. 
‘I
can own my Photoshop f*** ups but to call them out publicly seems
malicious. Most people I know including other bloggers and anyone that
puts content out to the public everyday has editing involved in photos. 
‘I
can own it being a bit to much at times (I’m not an editing expert) but
it’s not like I’m hiding. People know what I look like, I host events
and post videos… 
‘I
also choose only the best photos and most flattering angles of myself.
Another photographer or fans may not. If you have a personal problem
with me please email me. This honestly feels like bullying.’

‘Being shady is
gross’: While some of We Photoshopped What’s most-targeted subjects have
accused the account of ‘bullying’, its owner insists people should be
made aware when a photo has been edited
But
the account holder, who now boasts more than 6,000 followers, has been
quick to defend his or her actions, claiming that the number of women
who post Photoshopped images on Instagram is ‘gross’.
‘It
might not be nice but it is appropriate to call someone out who is
making money off this deception, especially when young girls make
comments about how they want to look like that,’ they commented on a
post. 
‘I
also thing the phrase “shaming girls/women” needs to be retired. I am
not going to treat someone with kid gloves and let BS fly because “women
need to support each other.” 
‘I’d post examples of men doing this too – being shady is just gross.’ 
6,000 followers and counting: Thus far, We Photoshopped What has had a steadily-increasing number of supporters

In
the case of Beyonce’s photo, which We Photoshopped What points out has a
number of bizarre wavy lines in the background, bright pink arrows are
used to point to the flaws in the image.
And it is not the first time that the chart-topper has been accused of Photoshopping her Instagram images. 
In
April, fans were outraged when the 33-year-old mother-of-one shared an
image of herself playing a round of golf – having reportedly
Photoshopped her ‘thigh gap’ in order to make her legs appear thinner. 
At
the time, one fan wrote on Twitter: ‘really @Beyonce? we all love your
thick thighs. NO reason to photoshop a thigh gap in there..’
