Ronda Rousey Apologizes For Posting Photoshopped Photo — SEE PICS
Ronda Rousey is apologizing for mistakenly posting a photoshopped photo on her Instagram page. See the original and edited pictures below.
Rousey appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” earlier this week. On Thursday, she posted a photo from her appearance on Instagram with information on her look, naming the stylist, dress designer and so on. But she apparently didn’t realize that the picture, though an official NBC snapshot, had been altered to make her right arm appear slimmer and more toned.
Rousey caught wind of the photoshopping hours later, and posted a side-by-side comparison to be transparent with her fans. “I have to make an apology to everyone — I was sent a picture to share on social for Fallon that was altered without me knowing to make my arms look smaller,” wrote Rousey. “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 added, “And I can assure you all it will never happen again. I could not be more appalled and hope you all forgive me.” It’s unclear if the responsible party is in Rousey’s camp or someone from NBC. The MMA fighter’s candor received mixed reactions, with some fans praising her honesty, and others posting typical Instagram hate. It made a meme Rousey had posted a few hours prior seem all the more timely.
It read, “One of life’s simple truths: If you post a rude, insulting comment on a complete stranger’s social media, you’re a sad, empty loser. You’re also an assh*le.” The posts come a few days after Rousey tearfully confessed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she contemplated suicide in the wake of her shocking loss to Holly Holm. Incredibly, that admission was met with some hate online, too.
