Kim Kardashian has been racking up some pretty negative reviews following her latest beach outing. The 39-year-old reality star and makeup mogul put on quite the display as she frolicked on Mexico's shores – while some fans were 100% digging the KKW Beauty founder in her wild swimwear, others were disappointed, throwing out mass accusations of the whole thing being staged and Photoshopped.

Kim managed to squeeze in both a public swimwear look and a closet one yesterday. While responses to the star's bikini selfie were positive, feedback to the monokini was a different story.

You can see Kim in her bronze monokini here.

Photos showed Kim flaunting her insane curves in a super-tight latex swimsuit as she splashed about. The bronze monokini was cut-out as they come, featuring a thong behind and a dangerously low neckline accentuated by a gold clasp.

Kim accessorized her look with heavy and gold hoop earrings, plus statement shades, also wearing a full face of makeup.

Viewers to The Daily Mail's images have been leaving thoughts. The most popular responses in the British newspaper manifest via an upvoting method – it's easy to see which replies were liked the most.

Kim found herself under fire from viewers.

"Of course, her personal paparazzi. Splash News is there to edit pictures for her," a user wrote.

The comment racked up over 3,000 likes.

"Splash News doesn't count, they photoshop the pictures for the KarJenners. We saw her real *ss in Mexico anyway," another said – over, 2600 users upvoted this comment.

"You can see the Photoshop glare!!" a fan exclaimed.

Kim was also accused of being "plastic" by many users. That said, the comments section wasn't exclusively one-sided, with some fans thinking that Kim looked great. These comments did not garner many likes, though.

If you clicked on the link near the top, you'll have seen two things: Kim getting wet and wild in her latex monokini and older photos of the star in Mexico – these had shown the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star in thong swimwear that revealed some cellulite.

Fans had been quick to point towards the latter.

Kim herself has spoken about cellulite just recently.

"I am big on cellulite on the thigh so I wanted to make sure there was extra bonding on the side of the thigh," she explained as she spoke of her SKIMS shapewear.

Another day, another Photoshop scandal. The Kardashian-Jenners frequently fall under fire for having allegedly edited their images. So much so, that Seventeen collated a whole series of "Photoshop fails" from the five sisters.

In August 2019, Kim was called out for appearing to have six toes in a KKW Beauty promo that was slammed for alleged Photoshop.

Kim maintains that she has had no surgery. That said, the mom of four has admitted to using Photoshop. She even Photoshopped daughter North West into her 2019 Christmas card.
