Aye yai yai, Harper’s Bazaar, what were you thinking?

In the latest photoshop fail, the magazine felt that model Kate Upton‘s armpit needed a little retouching. Actually, there was enough retouching that the magazine removed a chunk of her armpit. Why they did this we’re not sure. We’ve seen Upton’s arms before and well, they look pretty normal.

The article, ironically enough, is called “Kate Upton’s Trainer Spills Her Fitness Secrets.” While David Kirsch, her trainer, does say she does boxing to get her arms in shape, he mentions nothing about photoshopping her to look great, so we’re sure Upton is going to upset about this one. We definitely know that Twitter users aren’t happy about it. Many have responded to the photo asking what happened to Upton’s arm. One person even wrote “Kate Upton has no armpits for God’s sake! I know you’re setting the impossible standard for beauty but this is ridiculous!”

Kate Upton has been very outspoken lately have her body and her confidence with her amazing curves. When one media outlet tried say that the blonde bombshell wished she had smaller boobs,  Upton quickly shot back. “I actually didn’t ever say that. Isn’t that lovely whenever the media makes up something? It’s like, ‘It’s my body, I’ll tell you how I feel about it,’” she said.

This isn’t the first photoshop fail we’ve seen this year. The cast of “Pretty Little Liars,” an Ann Taylor Loft model and even Lady Gaga have all undergone obvious image enhancing (or really, impairment). H/T HuffPost Style.
