A Photo Of A One-Year-Old On Instagram Was Stolen And Photoshopped

Photoshop seems to be a multi-talented piece of software. Not only does it allow skill-less individuals to alter their photos and turn them into a subject of ridicule online, but it also causes a lot of controversy in the world of celebrities, and to top it all off; it allows a certain skilled Photoshop artist to mess around with his clients and anger them.

However, taking photos of someone’s infant daughter and photoshopping her eye color without any kind of permission or given consent, now that’s messed up.

That’s exactly what happened to mother Caroline and her daughter Jayden.

She’s a beautiful toddler, and her mother runs her very own Instagram account, @lilcocoo, which has over 14k followers

This is the photo that Caroline posted to Instagram while her children and herself were vacationing in Italy. This is the type of photo that receives the most attention from the fans.

Meanwhile, this photo was taken by a different account and reposted, and as you can clearly see, Jayden’s eyes have been edited to be blue.

The photoshopped version got so much attention, that eventually YouTuber Laila Loves decided to speak up about it. Clearly, she isn’t too impressed.

“I’m so confident with my daughter’s beauty,” Caroline told Buzzfeed. “For me, she’s perfect as she is,” the mother added.

The internet had quite the negative reaction towards this trend:

Considering that this is literally an act of borderline racism and fetishing children, it’s good that people have had responses like this.

The account that the photo was posted to has since been taken down, but there are tons of other similar accounts that pollute Instagram.

Not only is this stealing other people’s content, but these are real babies and they have parents. Not to mention, it’s damaging to these kids’ self-esteem.

Here’s a snip it of the comments on the edited post

These people are literally treating the baby as an object

As you can see, other edits are sometimes made, such as the removal of freckles or blemishes. These are edits done to a different child, Maya, whose photos were also stolen.

Caroline has stated previously that she isn’t too bothered about the edits.

And here comes the worst part of all

Some of these pages are completely oblivious to the criticism, going as far as @exquisitebae to block all the users that go against the posts.

Frankly, if you’re posting children on an Instagram account called @exquisitebae, depending on how people take that, you could get a far bigger punishment than just getting hate comments on your post.

Do you think that it’s right for Instagram pages like this to post edited photos of people’s infant children?
