Kim appears to be unfazed by all the fuss over the image, as the picture remains on her Instagram profile - warped auto and all. In her blog post, Kim included the full photo with both mirrored images, which explains why the vehicle looked so askew.
At first, the 37-year-old reality star simply disabled comments on the picture. Finally, to clear the air, she wrote a short explanation on her website.
Kim Kardashian hit back at claims she photoshopped a paparazzi shot of her self and called it "so ridiculous", according to People Magazine Tuesday. "So, this is actually really amusing to me", she added. It's so ridiculous. I reposted a picture on Instagram that a fan had already posted - I only added a filter to it.
Celebrity websites describe the auto in the "Photoshop fail" as being squashed but it looks more like a mirror effect has been used, perhaps in an effort to widen the frame to fit Instagram without cropping out the Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star's feet.
However, followers were quick to point out a clear indication of a Photoshop attempt-gone-wrong, as a auto in the background was shown completely warped, suggesting the image had been digitally altered.
Many die-hard fans praised her for setting the record straight.
In the post, she included a copy of the original shot taken by photographers along with the shot she shared from a fan that appeared on her social media account that created headlines.
