Khloe Kardashian Accused Of Photoshop Fail After Fans Spot Sixth Toe
Published in Jul 2021 / Updated in Oct 2021
Khloe Kardashian has been facing severe criticism after posting a promotional picture – which fans suspect has been Photoshopped – for her new swimsuit line.
Though the Kardashians don't shy away from flaunting their true appearance on their social media platforms, some alleged photoshop fails appear on the surface from time to time.
It all started when the Keeping Up With The Kardashians co-star shared a picture on her 164 million-follower Instagram page with the caption: "Teasing you until Thursday."
While a lot of fans were blown away by her gorgeous look in a pink swimsuit from her fashion line's latest release, others couldn't help but be distracted by the hilarious photo blunder seen in the bottom right-hand corner.
Khloe had what appeared to be a sixth toe on her right foot, which she seemed to be completely unaware of.
The comment section lit up as soon as followers saw this hilarious hiccup in her photo.
One commenter was not shy at all and got straight to the point:
"Nobody gonna talk about the extra toe oooor."
A third Instagramer said:
"What's going on with the meat under the pinky toe?"
While a fourth wrote:
"What is up with them toes girl."
The problem of the 37-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians co-star didn't end there, as her fans began to criticize her for excessive and poor airbrushing.
As a person commented:
"Dude the distortion on your feet shows you edit your pics."
Kardashians And Photoshop Fails
This wasn't the first photoshop fail from the Kardashians. Last year, Kim Kardashian caused shockwaves when she posted a photo on her Instagram account that also showed a concealed sixth toe.
During a video she shared to her Instagram Story, the socialite disproved these rumors.
"Okay, so everyone thinks that I have six toes, and it's really wild."
"But it's this part of my foot that when I wear a shoe just like this, it like smashes down right here."
"And in a picture – I don't know why – that looks like a sixth toe."
"I hope that answered my sixth toe question because I only have five toes on each foot."
Dr. Daniel Geller, a sports podiatrist, told Hollywood Life that Kim's sixth toe was actually a tailor's bunion.
"When there's a deformity on the outside part of the foot, that's called a tailor's bunion which is what this appears to be."
"Essentially, what you're seeing is the fifth metatarsal bone that protrudes outward a little bit, which almost creates an optical illusion that she has a sixth toe."
While the six-toe thing may be due to how their feet look, the celebrity family has long been accused of using various filters and photoshopping their snaps, which contributes to the toxic culture of unrealistic beauty standards.
The family was also asked at the KUWTK finale whether they are promoting unattainable beauty standards.
The KKW Beauty mogul said about the accusations:
"No, I don't, because I think we get up, we do the work. We work out."
Kendall Jenner then added:
"We all really enjoy taking care of ourselves and being healthy, so I think if anything, the only thing we're really trying to represent is just being the most healthy version of yourself."
