Social media, and particularly Instagram, is extremely popular nowadays. Whether you are a mom sharing advice about parenting, a teenager sharing your latest outfit, or a businessperson using it to generate clients, social media has a big role in our modern world. Most people love it due to its ability to add filters or modify their actual images. However, when we overdo it, this can become quite obvious and fake. Let’s find out the top people who were caught being fake on social media!
She Has Her Own Clouds
In all four pictures, we see a beautiful woman, well dressed, and she seems to feel good in all the pictures. But the secret behind her happiness is a clear sky, not the joy of being in beautiful places to visit.
If you look closely, you can see the sky is exactly the same in every photo, with the exact same cloud formations. Did she edit them because they were taken on a cloudy day? Or did she even visit those places at all? We may never know.
Is There Any Unused Filter?
This lady is definitely not so happy with her appearance when it comes to taking photos. Why do we say that? Because it seems that she used all the possible tools in Photoshop, Instagram, and a few more.
Now, when we see the picture, we might think that she could look really attractive in reality. However, the modified smile, the added hair, the strange lips, and her frightening blue eyes make this picture totally unreal.
Straight Out of a Magazine Page
When we look at the picture of this young man, we don’t even know if he wanted to be sarcastic or to impress admirers. He seems completely inexperienced using Photoshop, but he should still not post this picture, which is obviously badly done.
The jokes about him didn’t stop appearing, but we still stick to the opinion that he wanted to send a message – hopefully! Otherwise, this is a double-handed (pun intended) slap in the face!
Half Human, Half Cartoon
When you edit a picture on Photoshop and do it well, the retouching you did almost goes unnoticed. But this young woman’s body clearly shows that no retouching of her shapes was even attempted.
Instead of her silhouette, they completed the body with images from cartoons. This picture looks like an advertisement for a swimsuit, but the one who promoted the product was very lazy because of this poorly edited image.
Is This a Joke?
When we look at this young lady’s face, we will surely find at least one reason to laugh. This is because the way she edited this photo is quite funny. And it does not benefit her at all, with some of her followers even comparing her to an insect.
The girl is in the middle of a picture in which she should shine, thanks to her glittery frame. But unfortunately, her face looks as if she is looking in a broken mirror… Poor thing!
The Woman Without a Nose
This picture shows us another uninspired young woman. We can overlook that one eye has not been edited equally, but what about the fact that the nose has almost disappeared?
We can’t really say that it’s not obvious, and that makes the picture not successful and obviously fake. Forgive the pun, but we smell a rat. Unfortunately, she can’t, as she edited her nose out!
Can’t Fool Your Fans
This woman wanted to impress her followers with her enviable shape. In the picture on the right, we see a very attractive woman. And we could say that even if it is an edited picture, it is not easy to realize that it is not the original picture. Especially if you do not know it in reality.
However, her bad luck was that her photo was also posted before she edited it, and her fans immediately saw the difference and began to make fun of her in the comments. And this is how you get caught being fake on social media!
When the Original Picture Looks Better
It is almost incomprehensible why this young woman chose to edit the picture and especially to reduce her face so much. This is proof that it is a much wiser decision to like yourself as you are, and not resort to major edits, because they can make you look fake instead of improving your appearance.
Even the comments of the people who saw the two pictures confirmed that the young woman looked much better in the picture without filters and did not need adjustments. Plus, why did she thin the face on the billboard?!
Reality vs. Editing
The young woman in this picture, Kylie Jenner, can undoubtedly take the award for Queen of Makeup. As you can see by the difference between the two images, it is obvious that you will have a shock if you receive the picture with her makeup on before meeting her, then she comes up to meet you without makeup.
We don’t have too many comments to make here, and we should congratulate her on the way she looks in the pictures. We can only wish her success in her dating life – we hope that her suitors expect the real-life Kylie and not the edited Kylie.
Men and Curves
This guy seems to be concerned with his shape in the same manner as his female counterparts. As a result, he decided to edit his abs in the picture. But this did not prove to be too inspired either.
That’s because it’s obvious that those abs do not belong to him, if you take a careful look. In fact, it looks like another one of the failed edits that let us catch the fake people on social media! Nice try, sir!
Is it a Miracle or Not?
We are here to have fun, not to judge anyone. This young lady who appears in the two pictures can be quite an example. She was very upset that those who follow her on social media called her “not so attractive.” So she decided to edit her picture.
But she sadly edits the image so radically that you no longer recognize the young lady. And, incredibly, she does not admit that she is editing her pictures. She should feel beautiful without any edits!
Paging Doctor Fake
The young woman who appears in this picture proves once again that not everyone should be inspired to edit their photos in Photoshop. In the picture on the right, we can see a pretty girl dressed in a white robe in a hospital.
In the picture on the left, however, we see the same girl, the same robe, the same hospital… But the girl seems not as pretty, having a crooked and thin face, concluding that it was a bad decision to adjust the look. Besides, she is in hospital – no one expected her to look great, even though she did in the right side picture.
We Have Aliens
Editing is definitely not for everyone, and it can do more harm than good to a picture if you don’t know how to use it. This young woman wanted to make her eyes look like a crystal blue ocean, but she almost scared everyone.
Her eyes did not look the same, the iris in her left eye seemed to be that of an alien, and we want to move on as soon as possible. Have you ever seen anything else as frightening as her edited eyes and lips… Would it be too much to say “E.T. phone home”?
Where Dreams Come True
Another young lady who daydreams is this time in Disney World. She has many photos in which she seems to be in the amusement park, but in fact, if we look closely, we see details that show us the truth.
At first glance, the sneakers’ position seems strange to us in her picture. And then when we look closer, another detail came up. She doesn’t have a shadow! That is an obvious giveaway that the picture has been edited. Shame… Let’s hope she will make her dream come true one day.
When One Half Does Not Match the Other
The two pictures have two halves of the same man, and you probably wouldn’t have known that if we hadn’t told you. In the picture on the left, he has a heavily edited image that was posted on Instagram, and, in the second one, he is invited to a show.
We didn’t show his whole face to play a little with our imagination and see if the two halves could fit. But it didn’t work out, as if they belong to different people, not the same one.
If Makeup Could Work Wonders
This woman is trying to do a make-up tutorial, showing the picture “before” and then “after”. But it’s pretty unbelievable that there can be such significant differences between the two photos… Just with the help of make-up!
We suspect that the picture was edited, and the face thinned because the differences are way too obvious. What do you think? She was so beautiful before that she really didn’t need to do any editing. On the plus side, at least the after picture doesn’t look too far fetched as a standalone… It is only over the top when you compare the two.
Do You Like My Pool?
The lady in the picture tries to show us her swimming pool, located in her luxury residence. But the watchful eye of social media consumers couldn’t help but notice that she wasn’t actually there. She was probably sitting in her bed, waiting for reactions to a picture that was edited.
The followers went way too far with jokes, even ironically saying that she should have checked the copyright of the owner of the house and pool before posting it.
Is There Surgery to Move the Eyes?
We are already used to the miracles that makeup does to the human face, and the shocking difference between how someone can look in reality versus pictures on Instagram. And that is exactly what we have here with Khloe Kardashian.
You can see that she clearly worked a lot on this picture because her eyes seem much farther apart. And the difference between the two images is way too obvious for us not to realize that they were adjusted. It looks like she’s a victim of too many filters and editing.
Women Don’t Need Armpits
In this picture, a careful eye can quickly notice that editing software has been used and can fail funnily. Why do we say that? Well, the two attractive young women in the picture don’t seem to have underarms!
And the one on the right doesn’t seem to have a navel either, which provoked hilarious comments. One of those who saw the picture said that the girls were lucky never to have to shave their armpits again. They will, however, have to keep editing their armpits in all pictures!
When Your Nose Almost Falls Out of the Picture
This man is an internet star from the United States, named James Charles. He is known for his surgical procedures and face enhancements, and many say that he no longer needs to edit his photos as his real-life face looks permanently edited.
However, while that may be true, he thought that his nose should be retouched. And the image is almost over the top ridiculous with a thin nose that does not fail to stand out and look completely fake. What do you think?
And Khloe Kardashian strikes again! As the title suggests, it is an almost impossible mission to find similarities between the two pictures. However, the picture was not fully edited… because her hair remained perfectly identical.
However, her face was completely edited, the eyelashes, lips, nose, and eyes do not even have the shape that she actually has in real life. Can you just imagine meeting her in real life, thinking you were going to see the woman on the left and meeting the woman on the right? You would probably walk right past her!
Do You Like My New Hair? I Found it on Google
A young lady posted a picture on Instagram in which she appears with a new hairstyle, playing games on her Playstation. Her followers were skeptical about her bright and beautiful hair. And of course, the next day, they found out the truth.
The same haircut was found on the internet if you simply searched for “pink hair waves”. And the funny comments did not take long to appear, ruining the uniqueness of her editing work. We have to give it to her though – she almost got away with it!
Eyes versus Lips – Which One is the Winner?
Yes, if you look closely at the picture of this girl, you will start laughing instantly. Poor her, totally dissatisfied with her eyes’ original look, that she decided to edit the image in Photoshop to have her eyes the way she wants…but did she succeed?
Unfortunately, she did not take into account one thing. The contour of the eye goes over the curve of the nose and everyone can now notice that they are not her real eyes. And she still posted the picture! Perhaps she couldn’t see the problem…
When Too Much Editing IS Too Much
Again, Photoshop can work wonders. In the picture on the left, we can see a very beautiful young lady, with delicate features and glowing skin. And on the right, we see the real woman who does not seem as happy and confident as the other.
Congratulations for the way she puts on her makeup and for the editing work. But still, the edited picture has nothing to do with the way she actually looks. But we can see how so many average looking women get away with stunning pictures these days.
In this photo, we see a girl with an almost ridiculously thin abdomen, holding two products in her hands, possibly for weight loss. We can only imagine that she had tried to lose weight with those two products.
But she didn’t succeed, so she had to resort to Photoshop to receive the compensation for advertising the products. We are joking, of course. But it is more than evident that it is not her real stomach because this is beyond disproportional.
Even the Cat was Edited
Certainly, men need other qualities to impress a woman, and no adjustments are required. But this young man did not take these “unwritten rules” into account and tried something that can be difficult to describe, but you can deduce from the picture by yourself.
The most hilarious thing was that even his cat sitting next to him in bed did not escape the editing, with blue eyes that almost scare you when you look at them.
What Does She Really Look Like?
Men were skeptical from the beginning when they saw the picture of the girl on the left. And as the lie has short legs, a normal picture was found, unedited, with that face and posted on social networks.
The difference between the two images is enormous and aroused the amusement of many, but it must be appreciated for her courage and for the work done on Photoshop. Unfortunately, it was close but no cigar. Better luck next time!
Are Those Balloons?
This young lady wanted to shock the audience with her enviable shape. However, it was a bit exaggerated with the editing, and it doesn’t look like a real backside. You can see with your own eyes how fake everything seems.
Even Kim Kardashian can calm down now that no one has actually dethroned her. But what do you think? Maybe this is yet another example of being fake on social media.
It is well known that women want a flat stomach and to be as attractive as possible on Instagram. But this young lady exceeded the limit by editing her abdomen. Instead of having as many admirers as possible, she had only vicious comments and ironic jokes about her stomach, with which she scared her followers.
She is a pretty young woman, and she doesn’t seem to have any beauty issues, so we’re sure she would definitely be much more attractive if she didn’t edit this picture.
Dreams vs. Reality
If we didn’t pay attention to the young lady’s face, we could say that there are different people in the two pictures. But it’s not like that; it’s the same girl in both pictures! It seems that she knows how to edit her photos, or she has someone who knows how to do it.
On the left, we have a young lady with beautiful curves. And on the right side, we have a bit more reality than she perhaps wished to show us. While she looks great in both pictures, our illusions are definitely shattered!
The New Type of Curved Car Door
This picture’s quality is not the best, but that’s not the only issue. This young lady did not take anything into account when she edited the shape of her body. The picture led to lots of laughter because she was not very attentive in the retouching of her photographs.
Also, she perhaps did not notice that she distorted the line of the car door behind her. In the end, in one way or another, she was successful – many people had lots of fun with this picture. Don’t worry, girl, you look good as you are! No need to edit your trunk!
Why Would Anyone Want to be so Thin?
It’s hard to imagine why a woman would want to look so thin. The only thing that came to mind is that this girl in the picture lost a bet, and the amount of money was large enough to be worth the effort to edit so heavily.
Jokes aside, it’s evident that the girl doesn’t look like that in reality and just wants to look much thinner than she is. However, she clearly exaggerated with the photo editing. It is such a shame as she has such a pretty face!
If The Ocean has Hills
The original picture showed a perfectly normal woman in front of a perfectly normal ocean. But, following the retouching that she considered necessary, we are left laughing.
Because her thin pelvis also brought retouches to the ocean, which started to show some impossible hills after editing. Well, this is undoubtedly fake or, perhaps, the oceans are changing – that’s because of her natural beauty, of course!
A woman posed, trying to show us her beautiful figure. It’s just that when she made the adjustments in her editing software to look like this, she didn’t think to change the shape of the shadow on the wall.
Her figure looks very attractive in the picture. But the shadow on the wall says otherwise. What her shadow tells us is that her bottom is almost flat and not as “sexy” as it seems. The funny part is that she would have looked just as good without the edit!
The Queen of Copy and Paste
So many influencers filter their pictures but then there are others who go way too far with their tricks. Johanna Olsson is a prime example of this type of Instagrammer. She got into serious trouble with her followers when she posted the following photos of her supposed trip to Paris.
Eventually, she got accused of superimposing herself onto generic backgrounds of the French capital. “I did one picture, shot it and didn’t think it looked that nice,” she said. “So I took a different background and put the background into it.”
Mind the Gap
We only have one main question when it comes to the following image – what happened to the gap in the glass wall? It seems to have just disappeared into the model’s backside.
In another world, this woman would not have felt the need to photoshop this image in any kind of way. She simply would have stood there, looking out to the sea – a classic pose for the ‘gram. But no, she just had to do what she did.
Influencers always think that the coast is clear and no one is watching them while they work their magic in constructing a fake photo. However, there are plenty of times when they’ll be caught by some opportunist in the background, like this young lady.
A covert photographer was lurking in the background when they discovered this woman posing for the camera. She eventually manipulated the photo into oblivion and was later exposed for what she had done on Reddit.
Fake State of Mind
Some influencers are famous for the photos they take while on their travels and Amelia Liana is no different. It didn’t take long before her reputation came crashing down after she posted the following photo of her standing by a window at the famous Rockefeller Center.
Although she appeared to be staring at the New York City skyline, someone pointed in the comments section that the Freedom Tower wasn’t where it was supposed to be. She took it down shortly after.
We imagine that certain influencers look a certain way but are always blown away when their true appearances surface online. Facebook user Ex Treme ended up catching this social media influencer from China, getting hold of some of the original photos and photoshopped ones, before putting them side by side online.
“After being secretly photographed, I haven’t been in the best of moods,” she wrote online. “That’s why these photos never made it online, after I weighed my options.”
Don’t Take the Red Pill
The time and effort that people will spend photoshopping themselves for the perfect Instagram pic is absolutely staggering. This influencer is a prime example of someone who will work all kinds of magic to create an artificial version of themself for their online community.
While her hairstyle does look fairly similar in both images, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that she has applied a lot of makeup and photoshop. Soon enough, the truth prevailed.
Breakfast of Chumps
There are many influencers out there who can’t get enough of the food they eat and can’t help but share photos of them next to their most beloved dishes on social media. But what if those dishes weren’t even real?
The following influencer had the audacity to post a photo of herself sitting by an empty table. It was soon revealed by skeptics that she had copied and pasted a cropped image of a plate filled with eggs, bacon, and bread onto that photo.
We Will Fake You
Let’s face it – anyone with a social media account is bound to want to share photos of their most epic encounters with celebrities. If you have the chance to meet the rock band Queen backstage, you know for sure that you will ask for a photo just so that you can get a bunch of likes on the ‘gram.
The only problem with this photo though was that the following influencer ended up superimposing herself onto someone else’s photo.
It’s All About Timing
Self-timers on phones are a great way to capture a photo of yourself without making it look like it is a selfie. This influencer was happy to reveal in her caption that she had in fact, used a self-timer to capture this beautiful moment.
Little did she know though that someone was hiding in the background and exposed what actually went down. While there is no shame in having your photo taken by someone else, it’s weird lying about how the photo was taken.
The New Superhero
There are plenty of women out there who happen to be tall and slender – that’s just the way they are built. But when you can tell in a photo that someone’s neck is abnormally long and has an unrealistic thin torso, as well as the longest of arms, you might begin to speculate that the photographer did some work to the image.
One of the biggest signs that this photo is fake is the fact that the decorations behind the young lady are bending.
Are You Sure That’s a Forest?
Fake photos don’t just mean that the person has edited it heavily. Truth be told, this woman didn’t do such a thing in the following photo. While in theory, there’s nothing artificial about the actual photo, the geotag gives away something about the post.
This influencer claims to have been hiking in Lake Okahumpka Park and Trail. However, her sister ended up posting a photo of her having the same photo taken from another angle, and revealing that this was taken in their garden.
So Much Glass
Look, if you are going to pose next to a glass structure while you have your photo taken, you have to understand that photoshopping afterward might get you into some kind of trouble.
This is because the glass background will probably appear to be bending depending on what trick you try to make to change the shape of your body. This guy learned not to do such a thing the hard way. He didn’t have to deceive his followers.
Waist Not, Want Not
Why do people have to edit themselves so much before uploading a photo onto social media? People simply can’t stand the way they look, even if their fans beg to differ. Of course, if one has a problem with their body image, they can try out a bunch of things such as dieting, working out, or even having surgery.
The only problem with that is that all those things either cost money or take time or both. This woman wanted to try and achieve the same goal in the quickest way.
No Paint, No Gain
It’s not just standing in front of a camera that is seen as good enough these days for influencers. Many people feel like they have to demonstrate some kind of niche in order to separate themselves from the crowd.
Take this woman, for example, who felt like having photos of herself painting would make a unique influencer. Fans still saw the flaw in her plan though, when they pointed out that she was using the exact same palette and paints, implying that someone else had made these paintings.
She Does Have Her Father’s Eyes
While it sucks for a complete stranger to call you out on social media, it’s even more painful when it’s your own flesh and blood doing it. This young lady tried to convince people online that she had heterochromia, a condition that results in different colored irises.
However, Celebface, which is a social media exposer, ended up getting their hands on a photo of this lady from her childhood. Then, her own dad commented on the photo and confirmed the lies.
I’m Not Telling You my Secret, I Know You’re Jealous
This woman seems to have the secret to being a super thin woman that can be envied for still have the right amount of curves and junk in the truck. It’s just that the rest of her body reveals that it’s not like that… proportionally.
And we realize, after her ridiculously thin waist, that the picture has been modified using editing software. If it was a real picture, she probably wouldn’t be alive because her organs wouldn’t have space in such a narrow waist.
You Can Never Be Late
In this picture, we see a woman with some incredibly long legs and, until we look at the shadow behind her, we almost don’t realize that the original picture has been modified.
The jokes did not stop appearing, and the young woman was mocked by the fans who wondered if she was driving the car from the back seat. Overall, she is a woman who looks attractive, and she certainly didn’t need her legs stretched to be successful and beautiful.
The Important Thing is to be Slim
We have seen many funny pictures, but this picture is among the top ones. You can hardly believe that people really post something like that, but we’re still unsure if this young woman didn’t want to make a joke and play a little with the shape of her waist.
In the end, even if she wanted to joke around or if she wanted to impress, the effect of this picture was not expected, because she was dragged in most of the comments from her followers.
Such a Pretty Sunset!
When we look at the picture of this young lady, we almost don’t understand why she had to work so hard to simulate a sunset? Moreover, she worked superficially, and it is not difficult to realize that something is strange when we look at this picture.
She avoids a blinding sun, which is supposed to behind her according to the poorly edited sunset. And yet there is still a clear sky behind the trees.
Something is Strange About His Body
This is another picture that makes you think. And you don’t know if it’s a joke or if they even have serious intentions to promote themselves. The young man in the picture does not seem at all satisfied with how he looks. So he resorted to various edits to look more muscular, but he got it completely wrong.
If we look at him carefully, these adjustments make him look a bit funny. The lady’s belly doesn’t look exactly like that in reality either, and it makes for an entertaining, yet clearly fake picture overall.
