Days after Rousey posted a retouched photo to her Instagram, she issued an apology to her fans, saying she wasn't aware the photo had been doctored.

In the photo, which shows Rousey as a guest on The Tonight Show, her upper arm and jawline are noticeably thinner than in the unretouched version.

Fans were quick to point out the pretty obvious instance of editing in the comments, prompting Rousey to post a side-by-side image of the original and edited photos, along with a lengthy apology.

"I have to make an apology to everyone - I was sent a picture to share on social for Fallon that was altered without me knowing to make my arms look smaller," she wrote. "I won't say by who - I know it was done with severely misplaced positive intentions - but this goes against everything I believe and I am extremely proud of every inch of my body. And I can assure you all it will never happen again. I could not be more appalled and hope you all forgive me."

Rousey also called out haters who had been bashing her in the comments section of the altered photo, posting a quote that read, "One of life's simple truths: If you post a rude, insulting comment on a complete stranger's social media, you're a sad, empty loser. You're also an asshole."
