While the Kardashians being accused of using Photoshop to alter their photos is nothing new, fans are hopping on board with a theory that the paparazzi is in on the editing, too.

Cosmopolitan reported that when an Instagram account called @fakegirlsfvckya posted a side by side of a fan picture and a paparazzi picture of Kim Kardashian wearing the same outfit, fans did not hesitate to call out the reality star on the differences.

The photo, taken outside Nobu in Los Angeles, features Kardashian sporting an all-denim outfit. The fan-taken photo shows Kardashian with slightly different features than the paparazzi-generated photo. However, it could've just been a bad angle.

Some photos are Photoshopped by the paparazzi companies, the celebrities pay for that. That's why when a FAN takes a picture of some of these women, they look very different. In this example you can see the difference in Kim's hips and the size of her waist. And in the second picture you can see how without any retouching, Kim's butt also looks different. . Algunas fotos son retocadas con Photoshop por las compañías de paparazzis, las celebridades pagan por eso. Es por eso que cuando un FAN le toma una foto a alguna de ellas, lucen muy diferentes. En este ejemplo puedes ver la diferencia en las chaparreras de Kim y el tamaño de su cintura. En la segunda foto se puede ver como el trasero de Kim luce realmente sin ningún retoque. . . @kimkardashian #kimkardashian #kanyewest #kyliejenner #kendalljenner #kourtneykardashian #kholekardashian #kardashians #kardashian #jenner #fake #photoshopfail #photoshop #badliar #liar #sosad #sobad #falsa #mentirosa #insecurities #instagram #couplegoals

In the paparazzi photo, you can see Kardashian's seam on her pants looks slightly different, as well as her waist and hips having different proportions than the fan-taken photo. The differences were enough to make fans think that the family is paying the paparazzi to Photoshop their pictures before releasing them to the public.

Many have taken to the comments section of the post, with statements like, "When photoshop is so extreme your clothes start to look distorted," "why is her hip pointed???!!!," and "Very out of proportion." However, others have defended Kim, finding the account extremely offensive. "Y’all are so g*ddamn disgusting with your body shaming. It’s so gross," one wrote.

At the very least, the accusation has been enough to strike up a conversation on what the paparazzi's role is in these types of situations--and we're sure that the debate is far from over.
