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!

These Pictures Of Disney World Abandoned Before Hurricane Matthew Are Super Creepy

To give you an idea of just how severe Hurricane Matthew is, Disney World is closing down in preparation of the mega storm, something the theme park hasn’t done in over 11 years.

But the happiest place on Earth is only made happy by the throngs of parents being dragged by their shouting children in unforgivable heat all while trying to avoid spending a fortune on a bottle of soda or a huge lollipop.

Because without people, the happiest place on earth is just downright creepy.

What makes these photos even creepier is when you consider that over 500 people have already been killed by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.

Which is insane, because every time you hear the name Matthew, you probably think of Broderick, or Matt LeBlanc.

Or Chris Matthews, who, despite having a program called Hardball, isn’t the first person when you think of something intimidating.

It’s just so eerie.

Unreal. (h/t hellogiggles)
