OK Mag Happily Photoshopping Women After Post-Pregnancy

Yes, we know who Kourtney Kardashian is. As we’ve said before, we don’t actually like talking about people in reality TV or who don’t have any accomplishments beside that of what their parent(s) have done. That said, we did think it was admirable that she did speak up about this obviously doctored photo.

What we notice is her face has been replaced for a thinner version and her pregnancy weight has mysteriously disappeared. Khloe told WWD, “They doctored and Photoshopped my body to make it look like I have already lost all the weight, which I have not.” She also shared that she never spoke with the magazine nor posed for the ‘creation’, which was taken from the January 11th issue of Life & Style.

OK Magazine has declined to comment, not surprisingly. What is contemptible about this is that she looked so beautiful in her post-baby picture. It seems comical and absurd to change how someone naturally looks and to have made it so silly. If you look at the placement of her arms, lopping off of her wrist and the too clean lines made with erasing of her stomach, it is disheartening.

It also provides yet another example of a media-created form of reality that, sadly, negatively influences society when it should instead be society influencing the media.
