The Unnecessary Photoshop Job That’s Pissing Little Mix Fans the Eff Off

By  | 

Okay, Mixers, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news: Little Mix is on the May 2016 cover of Cosmopolitan UK! The bad news: not all fans are keen on the photo shoot; more specifically, Jesy Nelson‘s appearance.

Here are the cover shots:

All of the girls — (L-R) Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, Jesy & Jade Thirlwall — look gorgeous (albeit, Perrie’s got a bit of a Nicole Kidman thing going on that we can’t unsee, but still beaut). But then the individual shots hit the web — including this one of Jesy:

It has since started to make waves:



During the cover spread, Jesy said that she was plagued by self-doubt while on The X Factor, thanks to Internet trolls attacking her for her weight. “It used to make me cry,” she explained. “I was shocked at the time. I was a young girl and I thought, ‘What have I done to you? Why do you have to be mean to me?’ I’m not a nasty person and I took it to heart. Some of the things people said were disgusting. It really affected me.” So it’s pretty ironic that the magazine itself seemingly toned down her curvy figure, no?
