Instagram influencer slammed for ‘fake’ travelling pictures

Mistakenly, flaunting a luxurious lifestyle on Instagram has asked an influencer to the issue of an apology.

Mistakenly, flaunting a luxurious lifestyle on Instagram has asked a London-based influencer for the issue of a declaration about her Photoshop skills — even though she was being blasted for “fake travels” after placing a bunch of poorly edited images of themselves in Paris.

Instagrammer Johanna Olsson a public statement after the critics among her Instagram follows than 510,000 pointed to the fact that images of her glamorous October trip to Paris had changed with Photoshop for their backgrounds in a “painfully obvious” way, The Mirror reports.

In one picture, the 28-year-old Swedish native seems to float as she is apparently on top of themselves on a bridge over the River Siene, the Mirror reports.

In another, Olsson coyly poses on an outdoor bistro, if a white outline enshrouds part of her head and an umbrella seems to be missing from a neighbouring table.


“My cat does it better in Photoshop,” an Instagram detractor comments.

“BAHAHAHA fake,” another agreed.

“loooool Johanna Olsson has been caught EDITING PICTURES of HERSELF to look as she travels the world. Imagine bein that desperate [to] impress [and] to be looked at in such ways on Insta,” one Twitter troll came up with.

The australian pop-culture site Mamamia reported the blonde beauty has since offered an explanation, although she claims that she did, in fact, a trip to Paris.

“I wanted to talk a little bit about the photos that I placed in Paris. So I have a photo shot and not thinking that it seemed like that… so I took a different background and put the background in,” she said, reportedly, said via Instagram Stories. “And when I put it up, nobody noticed, so I thought, this is good.”

“I admit it was not my best Photoshop skills. Now in Sweden, this is thing is crazy, and TV shows want me to come and talk about my ‘fake holiday’,” she added.

“It is a bit ridiculous, I think. There are a lot of influencers that Photoshop in birds, rainbows or crazy skies and I could do that, but I don’t like that,” Olsson continued. “I just wanted to make that clear that I was in Paris, but I did Photoshop the background, but I’m not going to get them down, because it is a collaboration.”


According to The Mirror, the influencer on an all-expenses paid trip for various fashion collaborations.
