Just last month, Kim Zolciak was accused of photoshopping the butt of her 4-year-old daughter. Yikes.
Now, after new photos have surfaced that appear to show her kids before and after being digitally altered, Kim is blasting the accusations.
Kim calls the accusation “sick,” but even some of her own fans are convinced that she’s doing it.
An Instagram accounts called @wigzncigs is dedicated to exposing Kim Zolciak as an alleged fraud.
And they may have hit the jackpot.
They shared what they say are before and after photos of two of Kim Zolciak’s very young children, Kaia and Kane.
Though the differences are almost imperceptible, it does appear that the photos were modified.
If you can’t see the changes to both Kaia and Kane with the side-by-side images, perhaps seeing the contrast like this will help:
“Check out the before & after,” the non-fan page writes.
“Kaia’s waist was taken in and her legs were made thinner,” the caption reads. “Kane’s ear was also made smaller.”
It certainly appears that way.
But Kim, who has been accused of doctoring photos of her children in the past, took to social media to express her outrage — and a firm denial.
“People are f–kin SICK!!” Kim exclaims.
She demands in her tweet: “Get the f–k out here!!”
“No post was taken down,” she asserts about the “before” photos.
“And,” Kim continues. “No photo has been nor will ever be edited of my children!”
As for the accusations, Kim writes: “I will no longer stand for this bulls–t!”
This is not Kim’s first time being accused of this.
This Halloween photo of Kaia and Kane brought on accusations that she had digitally manipulated the curve of her daughter’s butt.
Kaia Biermann, for the record, is four years old.
The idea of a mother being so obsessed with appearances that she tries to make her extremely young children look more “perfect” is stomach-turning.
Is this really what’s happening?
Even some of Kim Zolciak’s own alleged fans seem to think so.
“I’d love to believe you,” tweeted one person. “But I’ve seen a video of your IG pic/story, and it’s CLEARLY photoshopped-there are before and after shots. Sad, really.”
Others were less gentle, tweeting: “The photo was 100% photoshopped lol.”
Kim had defenders who sided with her, but her critics encouraged them to look at what they say is evidence of digital manipulation.
“Obviously you people haven’t seen the before and after,” a tweeter wrote to Kim’s defenders. “You can preach happiness and acceptance and joy…but damn girl, actions speak louder than words!”
Other fans spoke openly of their hope that her husband, Kroy, will step in and stop her from tweaking any more photos.
As we mentioned, @wigzncigs is serious about taking down Kim Zolciak.
Their Instagram bio reads: “Exposing Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her family for the liars & frauds they are! Ask, Believe, Deceive.”
The bio also links to, of all things, a change.org petition.
The petition aims to implore Andy Cohen to cancel Don’t Be Tardy, on the grounds that they don’t like Kim Zolciak and think she’s fake.
Our first thought was that someone has way too much time on their hands.
Our second thought was to half-jokingly wonder if NeNe Leakes is somehow behind this.
(She’s not, but it would be so funny if she were using her massive paycheck to bankroll people to roast Kim)
But on a more serious note, if this “evidence” is somehow being faked or simply a misunderstanding, we hope that Kim can clear it up.
If Kim really is rounding out the butt and shrinking the ears of her very young children, though, that is … super f–ked up.
It’s one thing to have body image issues with yourself. It’s another thing altogether to project that onto your own babies.
