Lil’ Kim Thinks the Hate Is Real After Seeing Photoshopped Image of Herself
An unflattering Photoshopped image of Lil’ Kim, which made its rounds on the Internet earlier this week, has the Queen Bee calling the doctored photo the work of real haters.
Recently, Kim went to Twitter to speak up about the photo, which had a lot of people talking. Posting side-by-side images of the real photo and the fake photo, the Brooklyn rapper captioned the images, “Really? The hate is so real.”
Iggy Azalea also chimed in on the situation giving props to Kim for letting the public see the truth. “Let them know boo,” she tweeted at her OG.
Things have now been clarified, but when the photo first started circulating on the Internet Lil’ Kim fans and haters were taking their stances. The image is from Kim’s performance at the BOOM Bash 2015 Concert on Dec. 12 in Philadelphia and shows her rocking a black bodysuit while walking backstage. For one, the Photoshopped picture makes the rapper look about 50 pounds heavier in the butt and gut region, which made for some interesting comments.
“How come Lil Kim look like one of the dancing raisins??” one person wrote on Twitter. “Lil’ Kim earned all the slander she get for paying a doctor to make her look like this,” wrote another.
Sure, Kim is a long way from how she looked on the cover of her 1996 album Hard Core. But things are not as bad as someone with Photoshop would have you think it is — for now.
