Allegedly Photoshopped Pictures Of Justin Bieber Retracted
Let's examine the evidence. Update: BreatheHeavy.com has retracted the allegedly photohopped pictures and now says the images in the ad are authentic.
Update: BreatheHeavy.com, which published the pictures of Justin Bieber, retracted the images Saturday.
The retraction — titled "THIS *WAS* JUSTIN BIEBER'S CALVIN KLEIN PHOTO SANS PHOTOSHOP" and posted with an image from the original ad campaign — states that the site received a cease and desist order from Bieber's team. In response, the site pulled the pictures.
"Because BreatheHeavy is not about making anyone feel bad or intentionally stirring the pot (and are definitely not here for lawsuits), we shall retract the story per request," the retraction states.
Everyone had a lot of ~feelings~ when this Calvin Klein campaign featuring Justin Bieber was unveiled to the world earlier this week.
But it appears that some Photoshop wizardry was carried out on Biebs.
An unretouched photo of Bieber has been obtained by BreatheHeavy.com, and it appears to show the extent of the digital alterations.
It appears that Bieber's abs, biceps, bulge, and, weirdly, hands, have all been increased in size and definition.
BreatheHeavy have claimed to have obtained the image from a source "connected to the shoot".
