We all know sibling rivalries are relentless, but this one takes the cake.
Instagram user Casey Sosnowski posted pics of a hiking trip she took in Florida, looking cute with her pink leggings, visor, and water bottle. She captioned the photo, “Nature is the ultimate healer to all our problems #naturelovers” and tagged the location of a local trail.
A short while later, her older sister Carly took to Twitter to expose that Casey wasn’t hiking but was posing in their backyard. A photo she posted shows their youngest sister taking the photo of Casey.

Casey later changed her Instagram caption to, “Did I go hiking? No. Is this my backyard?……Maybe.”
Casey said in an interview with the Daily Dot that the hiking narrative wasn’t her initial intention.
“At first, I was just gonna take a nature picture, but then halfway through our DIY photoshoot, I thought why not go along with the whole hiking scenario, and then I put the location as a nearby trail which just added to the story,” Casey said.
When Carly initially posted the photos on Twitter, Casey said she didn’t think they would get that much attention. Carly didn’t immediately respond for comment.
“Carly only had 100-something followers on Twitter, so I thought it would only get attention from our friends, but then Twitter did its thing and by the next morning, we were at 100k and now 277k likes,” Casey said. “It’s crazy.”
On Instagram, Casey said her following has increased and her photo received nearly 4,600 likes.
“I’ve gained over 7,000 followers on Instagram and my post has blown up with likes,” she said. “I thoroughly enjoy the comments I have received on the post too. I have a lot of people saying where they’re from and how they saw it on their news station, and these people are from all over the world. I never would have thought this would be a global topic, but I just hope it shows people that not everything you see on social media is as real and perfect as it seems, which is a universal lesson.”
