‘Instagram vs. Reality’ Exposes The Truth About Those Unrealistically ‘Perfect’ Pics

We all know that most people share an idealized version of themselves on social media, cherry-picking only the best images, thoughts and experiences to share with the world. But some Instagram ‘influencers’ have taken this concept to the extreme. They bombard their followers with images that are so far from reality that they can sow seeds of doubt in some people’s minds, leading them to strive for unrealistic beauty standards at great cost to their self-esteem and mental health.

Luckily, there are people that see the problems in this and are trying to uncover the fakery that goes on behind the scenes. Last week we featured Swiss blogger the_truth_is_not_pretty, who posts honest, real images side-by-side with ones that have been given the ‘Instagram treatment.’ This time we have an amusing and quite shocking video by YouTube star Ethan Klein, who exposes the reality behind some of the more famous influencers.

Delivered with his usual comedic flair, Ethan skewers the obvious trickery that some of these influencers get up to on a regular basis. It all goes to show that everything you see online has to be taken with a pinch of salt, and under no circumstances should you compare yourself unfavorably to these people. They are not what they want you to think they are!
