'What Photoshop fail?' Kim Kardashian defiantly reposts THAT squashy car photo... and blames a fan on the edit

You might think she is so used to looking at mirrors, she could never be caught out by one.

But that is exactly what caused Kim Kardashian's latest Photoshop fail, or so she claimed on Monday.

The 37-year-old drew the scorn of many when she posted a photo on Instagram on Saturday, that was so heavily edited a car in the background had almost been crushed out of existence.

However on Monday the reality star defiantly reposted the image once again, with an explanation as to what had happened.

The KUWTK star gave her explanation to subscribers to her website in a post entitled 'What Photoshop fail?'.

'I’m seeing online and on news media outlets that I suffered a "Photoshop fail",' she scoffed. 'So ridiculous!'

'I reposted a picture on Instagram that a fan had already posted‚ÄĒI only added a filter to it.

Exhibit A: The 37-year-old claimed one of her fans had posted a mirror image pic, and that her crime was a cropping one

Keep up with Kim in sporty shorts by 2XU

Kim Kardashian was back doing what she does best... causing controversy and posing up a storm on Instagram!

The queen of reality stars shared a snap on social media whilst wearing naught but a pair of clingy cycling shorts.

The Kardashian clan have keenly been trying to push cycling shorts worked into everyday outfits as a 'thing' for some time now, and we have to say we think they've managed to get this trend off the ground...

It's impossible to say whether Kim had in fact been hitting the gym in these 2XU bad boys, or she was about to pop on some heels and a leather jacket with them, but either way if you fancy getting involved then click right to copy Kim, or see how the high-street has tackled the cycling short trend below.

'It looks like the fan mirrored the photo, which is the reason the car looks like that.'

Indeed the mom-of-three posted what appeared to be the original pic, which was a mirror image duplicate.

Kim's digital crime was in fact a cropping one, as she failed to notice she had included some of the mirrored photo too, creating the bizarre 'crushed car' illusion that set the comments alight.

'So, this is actually really funny to me!' she chortled in conclusion. 'Who would even Photoshop a car to look like that?! LOL'

Despite the innocent explanation, Kim still felt it necessary to switch off comments under her original post on Instagram. 

It's not the first time the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been at the centre of a photoshop scandal.

She had a piece of her arm missing from a snap she posted with BFF Jonathan Cheban.
