A photoshopped image shot for Billboard has been leaked online after it was found to have given Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke Hernandez two right feet.

The eventually canned photoshoot was leaked by Twitter account Shady Music Facts, and it helped reveal the absurd level of photo manipulation its stars can be exposed to, both in Billboard, and of course as part of the wider industry.

One Twitter user noticed the two right foot phenomena from Hernandez.

The shoot came as a wider profile of the band from the publisher. Hernandez was pretty forgiving of the photoshop gaffe in a Twitter post.

Billboard told Jezebel: β€œThe photo circulating on the Internet is a manipulated outtake from a Billboard photo shoot. It was never published by Billboard.”

The image appears, albeit unused, during a time when many are questioning the ethical use of photo manipulation of photos in the media amid a culture currently questioning the unrealistic beauty standards they can set, and the damage arising from such alterations.
