    Ronda Rousey, MMA fighter and general badass, has apologized to her followers on Instagram for sharing a picture of her that had been photoshopped. The image was intended to promote her appearance on Jimmy Fallon and she didn’t notice the alterations until later.

    As you can see from the side-by-side that she posted, her right arm was altered to look thinner. The wonders of Photoshop are of course a double-edged sword that can be used for good and evil. In this case it was closer to the latter, contributing to the debate over body image issues that athletes can face when they’re the subject of so much media attention.



    I have to make an apology to everyone - I was sent a picture to share on social for Fallon that was altered without me knowing to make my arms look smaller. I won’t say by who - I know it was done with severely misplaced positive intentions - but this goes against everything I believe and I am extremely proud of every inch of my body. And I can assure you all it will never happen again. I could not be more appalled and hope you all forgive me

    manufactured outrage to get her publicity because people increasingly don't give a fuck about her. I could hardly tell when I looked.

    She seemed to be in control of her Instagram BEFORE the fight when she wrote this about Holm

    [​IMG]
    now she appears to not be in control of her social media
    Oh dear hope she doesn't self harm after this....
    and you know a person who goes on National TV and tell the world about her suicidal tendencies Self Harms....
    to them self harming is a "warm up" for the Coup de Grace........

    So lets sum up...

    Doesn't have control of social media .....
    Suicidal Tendencies...
    self harm....
    got beat down by Holm after talking tons of shit...
    is on a PR campaign to save "image" and upcoming movie roles...

    This should be a lesson to every wanna be tough guy out there....it's amazing how one good ass kicking can completely alter the personality of a bully that previously had no respect for her fellow competitors.
    She should just retire.....not sure what is going to happen when Holly woops on her a second time. The fight wasn't even close. :giggle:
