Y’all know what photoshop is, right? The computer software in the right (or wrong) hands can make reality appear completely different. Well, this week people have been really abusing it to create straight foolishness.
Reality star Rykard Jenkins of “Love Island” fame, was a victim of this when his picture was edited to sell 2020 Trump hats. He tweeted, “Woke up this morning to know I’m the new face for the 2020 @realDonaldTrump campaign?” It was obviously a surprise to him that his smiling face was manipulated to look like he was smiling in support for the President. By first glance, the picture looks extremely real, but when you look closer it seems a little imperfect. That’ll teach us all to fact check to make sure we got it right!
