The Internet community has jumped on the idea that an Instagram photo posted by Beyonce was Photoshopped to give her a thigh gap, and some are horrified by the idea she would do that and others are convinced she wouldn’t.

The photo posted on Instagram Thursday shows the superstar bent slightly to take a putt on a golf green.

The controversy began almost immediately.

The Frisky pointed to what the site considered evidence of poor Photoshopping, with “wavy unevenness, and a certain sharpness where there should be a natural curve.”

"Beyonce’s (extremely toned, hard-working ... Blue-birthing) body doesn’t usually have a thigh gap you could drive a kid’s fire engine toy through,” The Frisky wrote.

Online, fans were vocal in their dislike of the apparent Photoshop effort or supportive in their belief that Beyonce wouldn’t do such a thing.

The focus on thigh gap, the space between a woman’s thighs when she stands with her feet together, has been blamed for encouraging eating problems because it’s not a naturally occurring physical condition, even in many thin, physically fit women.

“I think it's just a bad angle ... hopefully,” one person commented on the Instagram photo. Another said, “I'm so sad that she did this.. Smh.”

Others defended her, accusing people of being jealous.

Still others tried to introduce a little calm into the discussion.
