News about Kerry Washington’s retouch job by ADWEEK was buzzing on all social media sites on Tuesday.
On her Instagram Kerry Washington fired back in the most gracious way:
“So you know me, I’m not one to be quiet about a magazine cover. I always celebrate it when a respected publication invites me to grace their pages. It’s an honor. And a privilege. And ADWEEK is no exception.”
She continued to say, “I love ADWEEK. It’s a publication I appreciate. And learn from. I’ve long followed them on Twitter. And when they invited me to do a cover, I was excited and thrilled. And the truth is, I’m still excited. I’m proud of the article. And I like some of the inside images a great deal. BUT, I have be honest… I was taken aback by the cover. Look, I’m no stranger to Photoshopping. It happens a lot. In a way we have become a society of picture adjusters …. And I don’t always take these adjustments to task, but I have had the opportunity to address the impact of my altered image in the past and I think it’s a valuable conversation.”
