TikToker exposes how Instagram models fake photos

In one video that’s been viewed over 10 million times, Kiper discussed a photo of herself lying on a towel “at the beach” before revealing the truth.

“This picture is so funny to me, because it’s like, ‘She’s at the beach, that’s so cute.’ Incorrect. Home Depot has bags of sand for $4 and once I found that out, things went downhill,” she explained.

In a follow-up TikTok, Kipler showed a photo of herself appearing to lie in a large pool or by the ocean, but in actuality, she just filled up a small kid’s pool and the image was just zoomed in.
