“Clean your armpits Emily”: Emily Ratajkowski’s optical illusion post confuses Instagram!


Emily Ratajkowski shared a picture on Instagram recently, and it has led to much confusion. On Saturday, Emily posted the image that has attracted more than 420,000 likes and about 800 comments, but for a completely different reason.

The few pictures shared has Emily and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard enjoying a day at the beach. Of the five pictures posted, three were black and white while the remaining two were in color. The figures show the model in a monokini from her latest swimwear collection.

The controversial image is the first black and white snapshot, where Emily is snuggling with her husband. The image was meant to be romantic; however, the image’s intention has backfired on the model.

Is it weird I took this while he was sleeping?

While the picture has Sebastian lying face down on the sand, with his arm blocking his face from view, Emily is lying on top of him, resting her chin on his shoulders. The confusion arose with many of her fans and Instagram members confusing upon seeing the picture, Sebastian’s arm as Emily’s leg. The story grew more incredulous because the viewers assumed what was Sebastian’s armpit hair as a weird patch of hair growing behind Emily’s knees.

The funny optical illusion image has many fans face palming and laughing at themselves for their initial perception and has fetched the post much interaction. Many have commented on the post, asking the supermodel about that and the likes and replies on those comments reflect how many people have thought the same. There are comments such as, “How are you growing so much hair on the back of your knee? And so.

This is ironically and sadly not the first time that Emily Ratajkowski has been on the internet trend and debate, or say, this is not the first time that her armpit hairs have been the center of discussion. She had previously shared a picture with unshaven armpits which had caused another scandal and controversy, because well it seems people like talking and commenting about armpit hair.
