Ronda Rousey Apologizes After Posting A Photoshopped Pic On Her Instagram
Ronda Rousey may be my favorite celebrity out there.
Star of the “Entourage” movie and occasional MMA fighter, Ronda Rousey hasn't had the best few months since losing that match to Holly Holm. She went under the radar for a bit, came back to host a mediocre episode of "Saturday Night Live" and only recently emerged to speak about what she's been going through.
Her return to the spotlight had a little bit of a hiccup this week after fans accused her of posting a photoshopped image from her appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to her personal Instagram.
This is a bit of a shocker as Ronda Rousey has always been a staunch advocate when it comes to the fight against body shaming. Last year, Rousey addressed people who said she had a masculine body, saying,
I'm like, 'Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f*cking millionaires doesn't mean it's masculine.' I think it's femininely badass as f*ck because there isn't a single muscle in my body that isn't used for a purpose… I'm not a do nothing bitch.
So, how did this photoshopped picture get uploaded? As it turns out, it was uploaded by accident.
A few hours after the picture was uploaded, Ronda posted a massive apology to her Instagram.
She captioned the post,
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. 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.
Good on you, Ronda! Male or female, I'm naming all my children after you.
