Ashley Graham has been a real inspiration to her numerous fans for being fearless when it comes to flaunting her curvaceous body. But, looks like the plus size model's latest Instagram upload didn't go down well with her social media followers, as they raged about her alleged photoshopped bottom in the image.

More than once, the American star has graced the cover of the highly-prestigious Sports Illustrated magazine, but Graham might not have foreseen the outrage over her latest feature. Posing by the side of the sea, the 29-year-old model gave a miss to her bikini top for the sensuous shot.

With side-swept hair and boho-style beaded neckpieces adorning her voluptuous frame, Graham looked nothing less than a "goddess" in the cover image.

But eagle-eyed fans noticed an entirely different aspect about the sexy pic – Graham's allegedly photoshopped bottom. "Why has this been retouched. Especially around the booty area," complained one user.

Another follower of the model slammed the apparent editing, writing, "Photoshop is horrible, can see her butt isn't edited good enough. they made it all weird and flat."

"Wow... so sad to such a body positive person be okay with that amount of terrible photoshopping," a second user shared, while a third added, "How the f**k are you a plus size? You're skinny & act like you're big."

Graham, who has been quite vocal about body positivity and being in one's own skin, frequently shows off her figure in sultry photos online. Despite all the criticism over her latest picture, some of her loyalists continued to defend the model for being an "inspiration".

"You are my inspiration. I do admire you for being such a role model for women without self confidence. You are so beautiful and hot, girl. God bless you," shared the admirer.
