Ronda Rousey Apologizes for Accidentally Posting 'Altered' Image of Herself

Feb 19, 2016

Ronda Rousey revealed on Friday that she unknowingly posted a photo to her Instagram that had been 'altered' to make her arms appear smaller. She made the announcement in a new post featuring the original image — a picture that was taken of the former UFC champion during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show — side-by-side with the retouched one. "I was sent a picture to share on social for Fallon that was altered without me knowing to make my arms look smaller," she wrote.

I could not be more appalled and hope you all forgive me."
