Instagram Star Caught Photoshopping Phony Pictures Of Herself In Exotic Locales

Amelia Liana is what we like to call a “social media influencer.” That means she’s internet famous, mostly for being internet famous. Her Instagram account alone has over 472,000 followers. She lists herself as a “Fashion, beauty & travel blogger” and posts glossy, brightly-colored images of herself in exotic locations. 

Essentially, Amelia lives a “dream life” and posts pictures about it online.

Those glossy magazine-style photos may have been what drew her followers to her initially, but they’re also the thing that’s garnering her some unwanted attention and criticism lately. 

People have decided there’s a little bit too much Photoshop happening in Amelia’s pics and they’re calling her out. 

For example, this post of her at the Taj Mahal has people crying foul. We don’t know if you’ve ever actually been to the Taj Mahal, but it’sneverthis empty.

And as one commenter put it: “You can see this is photoshopped because the reflection on the water, notice how the Taj Mahal seems compressed to fit inside the pool… this is not how reflections work.”

And then there’s this pic. Look closely at the top of Amelia’s head.

We hope it’s not painful.

Amelia took to her social media to explain that sometimes she creates an image rather than actually taking it since it’s visually more appealing, but she’s always actually at the location she’s posting about. 

“Inauthentic” is one way to put it.

Even news outlets have started pointing out some of the more blatant incidents of image manipulation.

People started to question her directly about her images and her image principles.

Not everyone is bothered by the image manipulation, though. Some people seem to see it as par for the course and part of selling the “fantasy life.” 

Katja straight up doesn’t care if the pictures are Photoshopped.

And Sophie thinks we’d all do it if we could.

Do you think Amelia is being dishonest or just padding the truth in a harmless way? Let us know!

This Guy's Reaction To Exotic Animals Is The Purest Thing To Happen In 2016

If you look at any teenagers online profiles, it would be pretty easy to write off this generation of high school students as Instagram obsessed brats with no real passion for anything outside social media. However, for every kid glued to their iPhone, there’s a kid appreciating the incredible world around them. The latter are our hope for the future.

One of those hopes for the future is 17-year-old Jalen Brooks, a high school senior from Riverside, Illinois. A herpetologist came to his high school zoology class to show the students rare animals that had been confiscated from the illegal pet trade… And let’s just say, Brooks was pretty damn mesmerized. 

Classmate Jill Lojas tweeted a video of Brooks’ epic reactions to the presentation. 

Clearly, Brooks could NOT handle the majesty of the animal kingdom. 

“It began when he pulled out the biggest duck species there is! I was super intrigued,” he told BuzzFeed News. “After that,  then he pulled out the largest python I’ve ever seen and I lost it.”

Twitter is now “losing it” over Brooks’ enthusiasm. TBH, it’s just so pure and refreshing.

The video has been retweeted nearly 140,000 times — and it’s getting the meme treatment. 

As if the story isn’t adorable enough already, Brooks’ account of the whole thing is priceless. “He pulled out a series of crazy reptiles that were honestly dinosaurs in my opinion,” he said. “Then he pulled out the largest python I’ve ever seen and I lost it.”

Some people were equally impressed by the animals, and they wondered why their zoology classes weren’t this cool. 

It didn’t take long for the memes to start flowing in. 

The newfound Twitter fame has even landed Brooks some A-list followers, including NBA star Stephen Curry. 

Jalen, never lose your sense of wonder.
