Rumer Willis is taking a stand against body-shaming through unwanted photoshopping.
The daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis has a message for all photographers, magazines, print ad companies and anyone else with a computer and the cut+paste function: Stop photoshopping people withouttheir knowledge.
During a recent shoot for Vanity Fair, Rumer wasphotographed by Mark Williams and Sara Hirakawa with her sisters Tallulah and Scout in the back of a vintage car. While the photo does look great, afterthe shoot she allegedly hadher face digitally retouched by the magazine, which gave Rumer a smaller jawline completely without her knowledge.
Rumer took to Instagram to call out Vanity Far for photoshopping her without asking her first, using the situationas a chance to call out this form of body-shaming that is all too common in the industry.
Any friends of fans of mine who posted this I would appreciate if you took it down. The photographer Photoshopped my face to make my jaw smaller and I find it really offensive for anyone to try and change the way you look so drastically. I love the way I look and I won’t support anyone who would feel a need to change the way I look to make me beautiful. Whether or not they realize it, it is a form of bullying, which I won’t stand for.
The post has since gone incredibly viral with Willis supporters showing their love in the comment section and liking the picture over 9,000 times.
This is far from the first time a celebrity has taken a stand against having photos retouched without priorknowledge.
In 2015, Zendaya famously posted anInstagram photowith the caption,
Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue.
In a tweet sent out back in 2014, Lorde also notably took a stand against photoshoppingher skin.
