Former Vine star-turned-YouTuber Lele Pons has been accused of editing her Instagram images and reshaping them to make her look more appealing by fellow YouTuber “Nerd City.”

Lele Pons’ move from Vine to YouTube couldn’t have gone much better, as she has amassed more than 15 million subscribers on the platform.

Even though each video garners millions of views, she still boasts a fair share of people out there who dislike her.

YouTuber Nerd City underwent an investigation on the social media celeb and claims she has been doctoring her Instagram photos using the “reshape” and “liquify” tools found in programs like Facetune and Photoshop.

In his video on the subject, he showcases several of her images, and highlights numerous ones he believes to be edited and highlights the presumed changes.

With each image, he points out the flaws such as warped tiles, messed up walls on buildings, and numerous other highlights he believes indicates the images have changed.

Nerd City - YouTubeNerd City made a 50-minute video on Lele Pons.

In one instance, takes an image that was posted by both Lele Pons and by her official photographer. In the photographer’s image, he doesn’t find any faults – but can’t say the same for the one she posted.

“What have you idiots done?” he asked. “This looks like a nuclear accident. The glass is turning into soot.”

Of course, none of this information can officially be verified, so it’s important to take it with a grain of salt and come to your own conclusions.

Throughout the video, Nerd City believes that Lele Pons doesn’t hold herself to the same standards that she preaches.

He claims she creates a lot of content about body positivity but then points out that she is allegedly editing her images.

“And despite Lele’s participation in body positivity content and her encouragement to viewers to ‘be yourself,’ Lele doesn’t hold herself to that same standard,” he argued.

Lele Pons isn’t the only creator, or even Vine star, who Nerd City has tried to expose in the past: in October 2018, the YouTuber released a video titled “The Lies of Jake Paul,” and claimed Paul was lying to Shane Dawson about advertising merchandise to his young audience.

There’s no telling who the next YouTuber is that he has in his sights, but whoever it is will no doubt draw a lot of interest.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
