Everyone is calling Mariah Carey out for airbrushing her Thanksgiving picture

Can you even name a celeb anymore who isn't guilty of airbrushing a pic before posting it to social media?

Mariah Carey is getting some backlash for doing a quick edit on a photo she posted on Thanksgiving showing her wearing a deep-plunging lace-up white bodysuit and skinny jeans and holding a pie.

"#Festivating !! #happythanksgiving," she captioned the shot.

Only in her hurry to get the snap posted, she clearly didn't notice that her airbrushing job was subpar. A bend in the frame of the mirror behind her shows where she slimmed her upper arm, and there's a wiggle in one of the cabinets behind her leg that shows where she made her thigh look thinner — plus, there's the fact that her legs are two different sizes in the shot.

Her followers were quick to call her out in the comments, which were filled with simple comments reading "Photoshop" and even some snake emojis.

In my opinion, airbrushing photos is harmful because it promotes unrealistic beauty standards and can be damaging to women and girls who look at celebrities as role models. What's surprising is that almost no one in the comments was mentioning that, and tons of people were defending Carey.

"We ALL use filters, Photoshop and many even have their bodies done up. Let the woman be...over all she looks GREAT for her age," one commenter wrote. Another added, "It's funny how y'all are really under these comments screaming "photoshop"! But you are the MAIN ones adding filters, blur (smooth) effects, and lightning [sic] enhancement to your photos... you do know that is a form of Photoshop too, right? So STFU because she's not the first and won't be the last to photoshop a PHOTO!"
