BACHELOR Matt James is in hot water with fans after sharing the cover of his new book, First Impressions, featuring a pretty blatant Photoshop failure on the reality TV star’s hand.
The cover has started goes around social networks with fans flooding the comments with jokes.
As fans have pointed out, the problem is in Matt’s hands. His left thumb appears to have been photoshopped, bending unnaturally.
Her hand – and thumb – are located in the front and center of the cover, right next to the book’s caption.
One commentator wrote: “I don’t understand. How did it make the cover ??
Another joked, “I think the thumb is wrong with this photo.”
A third commentator wrote: “The book has to be on the thumbs up. “
Another fan wrote: “Trynna is hitchhiking to get out of this contract.”
Matt, 29, returned to Instagram on Tuesday to share the cover of the book and some thoughts on the book.
He shared video of the book with music in the background.
Matt captioned the post, which is currently the only one on his Instagram page: “MY Story, unedited. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Off-screen conversations with a bachelor’s degree on race, family and forgiveness coming out in May 2022.”
He added that he “I can’t wait to share more of my story with all of you, the whole truth.”
The reality TV star didn’t touch her seemingly photoshopped thumb.
Matt deleted the posts on his social media accounts after he landed at the center of a controversy involving his girlfriend Rachael Kirkconnell.
The couple met during season 25 of The Bachelor, but split in March after photos surfaced showing Rachael at a racist rally.
Matt called off the relationship to take “time to address the disturbing information that has come to light since we finished filming.”
He chose Rachael over Michelle Young.
Matt and Rachael have had their ups and downs.
in February, the couple split after photos of Rachael at an Old South Antebellum party at college surfaced online.
She faced a major backlash for attending the party, which was meant to celebrate the Confederate nation in the midst of slavery.
Rachael’s cousin, Anastasia, told The Sun at the time that Rachael was “not racist”, but noted that the photos were “difficult to defend”.
Matt has confirmed that he and Rachael are taking a break during the After the Final Rose ceremony.
He said of the drama: “If you don’t understand that something like this is problematic in 2018, there’s a lot of me that you won’t understand. It’s that simple.”
Rachael apologized for the photos via Instagram, writing: “If you’re in my comments or anywhere defending me or telling people that I haven’t done anything wrong or that it doesn’t there is nothing to hurt or offend, please stop.
“It’s not for us to tell people what they can and can’t be offended about. It’s wrong and it’s part of the problem, so stop saying I didn’t do anything wrong, it doesn’t. is not true.
“If you really want to support me, encourage me to do better.”
