Beyoncé faces photoshop backlash

She’s considered a sex symbol in the world of pop music, so why Beyonce would want to photoshop her pictures is anyone’s guess.

Yet that is exactly what some of the star’s fans are accusing her of, after the 32-year-old shared a picture of herself on holiday.

The picture in question features a bikin-clad Beyonce on the golf course, with a “thigh gap” that looks very suspicious.

“really @Beyonce? we all love your thick thighs. NO reason to photoshop a thigh gap in there,” wrote one dissapointed fan.

Many viewers were left with the impression that the former Destiny’s Child member had used the clone stamp tool to shave some weight off her legs, and one in particular felt she could at least have done a better job.

“With her money, Beyoncé should be able to pay someone who is better at Photoshop.”

Beyonce, who just ended a 132-show Mrs Carter World Tour, has been vacationing in the Dominican Republic with husband Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy.

After an exhausting tour, the star would have been forgiven for wanting some quality time with her family, away from the glare of the media. Instead, Beyonce has happily been sharing pics of her holiday online, mostly featuring her in a bikini as she takes a break in a tropical paradise.
