Fans of The Kardashians have caught Kim Kardashian in another photoshop scandal, as it appears she photoshopped her kids’ faces in recent pictures. Though fans were critical enough of the Kar-Jenners for their own photoshop scandals, their criticism worsened when fans noticed they seemed to be photoshopping their kids as well. Fans think it’s disturbing for them to push beauty standards onto their children, who are all under ten years old, aside from Kourtney Kardashian’s 12-year-old son Mason Disick.
Khloe Kardashian has been under attack in the past for seemingly putting filters on her daughter True Thompson’s photos. Fans have accused the Good American founder of projecting her own body image issues onto True. The most bizarre Kardashian child photoshop scandal occurred in January, when fans discovered that Kim had photoshopped True into photos with her daughter Chicago West at Disneyland. Kim’s daughter was actually at Disneyland with Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster. However, fans believe that since the trip was only a few months after the Astroworld tragedies, Kylie didn’t want Kim posting photos of Stormi because she was staying under the radar for the time being. Khloe had no choice but to admit to the photoshopped images because, in April, she went to Disneyland for True’s birthday and told fans it was her daughter’s first time there, which contradicted the photos Kim posted.
Despite the backlash, the Kardashians have continued using photo editing tools on their children, as Kim has been caught once again. The popular Instagram account @problematicfame, known for exposing celebrity photoshopping and plastic surgery, shared Kim’s recent post on their story and pointed out how it appeared that Kim had edited her children’s faces. The photos Kim shared were from her recent trip to New York City with her sons to promote her skincare line SKKN on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Instagram account wrote, “While Kim made some minor edits to herself here, she also made a minor edit to her toddler,” and added a broken heart emoji.
The account also shared a gif zoomed in on Psalm’s nose, showing the differences in his appearance in the original paparazzi photo versus the edited version of the photo that Kim shared on her Instagram page. The account claims that Kim edited her son’s nose so it would appear smaller in the photo. “As many of you know, this isn’t Kim’s first time photoshopping her children,” they shared. The account then posted some more photos further revealing Kim’s edits, including a photo of her daughter North West where she clearly made her stomach flatter, and a photo of Saint where his frown was edited to be less intense.
While it’s hard to tell if Kim intentionally edited Psalm’s nose or if it was a result of the edit she did on herself, the other evidence is quite disturbing. The family has gotten critiqued for pushing negative body images on young women by constantly editing themselves, though they still have the right to do what they want with their own bodies. However, when it comes to their children, there is no reason they should be pushing their insecurities onto them. With children so young, they can easily scar them for life by instilling insecurities and body dysmorphia in them. The Kardashians star will likely have an excuse for why her son looked photoshopped, but she would be doing everyone a favor if she let her children’s natural beauty shine.
