I had never seen the tweet before, but I was already hooked.
A woman with a perfect, clean, and clean face that had somehow become the face of the #skunk image was trending on Twitter.
I thought to myself: I can do this!
So I sent it to @bryantbenson, who was tweeting about the hashtag.
I immediately realized she wasn’t even kidding: This is what it looks like.
It’s the exact same face as the photo of Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vanity Fair in February.
This is the #SkunkFace, I thought.
In case you were wondering, I was right.
And that’s when I started to get the message.
I’m the #SKunkFace!
I’m a complete fraud.
I’m so desperate to get some attention.
I want the world to know that I’m the face in the photo.
But the reality is I am just a photo, and I’m not the person you see in the picture.
As @brianbenson tweeted to me in response, I’m “the photo.”
I am the face.
The real Kim Kardashian is in the shot.
Now, I am not a Kardashian.
However, the picture has been making its way around the Internet for a few weeks now.
A number of Twitter users have pointed out that the face is fake and the person in the image is Kim Kardashian.
The hashtag #skullface has been trending since the photo went viral on Feb. 4.
@brianbearden I don’t know if this is Kim or not.
I just know it’s Kim.
#SkullFace pic.twitter.com/VQK8yLb1cX — Sarah K. (@sarahkelly) February 14, 2021 @brennanbenson I don´t know if I can believe @brianskelly who is claiming that the photo is Kim.
(@brennanskelly2) February 16, 2021 This is a lie.
I am Kim.
I’m in the #KIMKANSPhoto.
That photo was created by @KelseyTavares.
I made the photo with my friend @Briannadaams.
They are my wife and me.
I did this.
Kim Kardashian is a photo.
It is real.
There is nothing fake about Kim.
She is the real person.
She is a woman who is famous for her look, not her sex appeal.
It’s a perfect photoshop job.
When I tweeted @briennanskills, I wanted to make sure that the @skullfaces were aware of the fake photo.
I didn’t want to get in trouble with social media.
I wanted the real @skunkface to know I was wrong.
Twitter users also pointed out other photos of Kim that have appeared in the past.
These photos show her in the exact exact same pose, with the same haircut, same makeup, and the exact photo on the front of the cover.
At one point, a Twitter user called @BRIANBEARD tweeted that @Brianbeard was actually Kim Kardashian and tweeted a picture of her.
What a terrible joke.
I hope the skunk face isn’t one of them. pic
