Ronda Rousey’s Crew is in the Doghouse

Ronda Rousey, America’s favorite female martial artist, recently expressed her frustration with Photoshop after receiving images from her appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” For someone who values strength in every aspect of her life, I can understand why she is so upset. Her arms are visibly slimmer as shown in her Instagram post, juxtaposing the original image with the altered version. The worst part – it wasn’t the Tonight Show team, it was someone within her inner circle.
Rousey spoke out via Instagram, “I won’t say by who – I know it was done with severely misplaced positive intentions – but this goes against everything I believe and I am extremely proud of every inch of my body.”
She isn’t the only celeb who has expressed disgust with the abuse of Photoshop in campaigns and print media. A-list names such as Lorde, Kate Winslet, Lady Gaga, Gisele Bundchen, and Beyonce have fought situations where their body was altered to appear unnatural. (One question…WHY would anyone want to mess with Queen B’s curves.) In 2013 Gisele Bundchen bemoaned the use of airbrushing in photographs, stating, “I feel like women should be really real and raw and it doesn’t really happen anymore.” Shortly after shooting a campaign with BLK DNM she praised the creative director for his raw approach. *praise hands*
