Lili Reinhart Calls Out Photo-Editing Apps For "Creating Unrealistic Standards Of Human Bodies"

“Our bodies should not conform to ‘one size fits all.’”

Last weekend, Lili Reinhart took to Instagram to call out an app called BodyTune that allows users to retouch and resize their own body parts in order to look slimmer. The Riverdale star posted her thoughts in a series of stories and even documented the process on how the app can be used.

“This is not okay. This is why people develop eating disorders. This is why social media has become hazardous to our health. This is why people have unrealistic expectations of their bodies,” she wrote. She then continued to voice out to her fans to not use apps that contribute to “creating unrealistic standards of human bodies” and that “our bodies should not conform to ‘one size fits all.’” “We are better than this. Looking ‘skinnier’ in a photo on Instagram is not worth the detrimental psychological effects that these photo-editing apps have given our generation,” she said in another story.

Fans on Twitter are praising the actress for her motivational message. One fan tweeted: “Thank you for your message on body image and those apps,” while another said: “The struggle is real with all these apps to change your body. It’s hard not to let it get to you at times but your words are a great reminder that most of the stuff we see on social media is not real.”

This isn’t the first time Reinhart has expressed her opinion on the negative effects of photoshop. Back in March 2018, she and co-star Camila Mendes exposed Cosmo Philippines for altering their waistlines to look smaller by revealing a before and after version on their social accounts.

Let us know what your take is on these kinds of apps and if you’ve personally used them on your own photos in the comments.
