Facebook users accuse Victoria's Secret of massive "Photoshop fail"

Did Victoria's Secret go overboard with Photoshop, or is model Lais Ribeiro just that skinny? Either way, Facebook users aren't happy.

Every day, the Daily Dot finds something that people on Facebook are sharing and, in turn, shares it with you—with a little explanation. Here's today's share.

To be fair, Lais Ribeiro is a Victoria’s Secret lingerie model. That’s a subsection of humanity that tends to be pretty thin.

But thousands of Facebook users are crying foul over an ad featuring Ribeiro in a somewhat awkward pose, with her arms crossed in front of her right hip. They say it was clearly Photoshopped to make her appear even skinnier.

“Looks like photoshop mistake,” posted Linh Nguyen. “This looks creepy.”

“biggest photoshop fail i have ever seen,” wrote Christian Jean-Louis.

The photo was featured on the popular Photoshop critique site Photoshop Disasters, which accused Victoria’s Secret of making Ribeiro look “like some kind of lanky alien/insect.”

On the other hand, the website Fashionista ran a side-by-side comparison of other photos of Ribeiro, presenting a compelling case that it’s possible that’s what she looks like in such a pose.

Even if that’s the case, though, some Facebook users aren’t pleased to see anyone with so little body fat being promoted. So far, 28 people have made a variation on the “she needs to eat a burger” joke.

Xiomara Cedeño is one of them.

“Can someone give her a burger please!! Lol,” she wrote.

"OMG GIRL," came the crescendo of comments from dumbfounded men (and a few women). It was as if Elise Andrew had infiltrated a 19th century scientific conference and suddenly ripped off a fake mustache in front of the assembled muttering menfolk. Cue pipes falling from open mouths. Shock! Awe! A woman!
