Latto has been accused of photoshopping the crowd at her own Coachella set to make it appear larger on social media.
Several people on began to speculate as to whether the image posted on Twitter by the 24-year-old star was authentic.
In the image, the Grammy-nominated 'Big Energy' vocalist can be seen facing the crowd with her arms raised in a pair of rather tight shorts.
After the photo was posted online, many spotted some duplicates in the crowd and took to Twitter to roast Latto.
One Twitter user said: "This is mad embarrassing."
A second added: "The way it’s obvious too even without zooming in."
While a third chimed in with: "That’s very embarrassing. The internet catches everything."
Others spoke out in defense of the musician, pointing out the duplicates may not have been intentional and could have been caused by software used to widen the shot.
Everything outside this red box is photoshop content aware filled. Again, just the photographer wanting the shot to be framed differently. Crowd only got like 5% bigger. And she sure as hell wasn’t the one on photoshop doing it lmfao pic.twitter.com/sgWHmpbijU— hawks (@HawksNest) April 18, 2023
One user said: "It’s from the photo being expanded using content aware fill, like if you try to change the aspect ratio of a photo without distorting the image photoshop or any [computerized] editor will 'create' pixels by trying to match what’s around it so you don’t need to distort the image."
Another added: "Everything outside this red box is photoshop content-aware filled. Again, just the photographer wanting the shot to be framed differently. Crowd only got like five per cent bigger."
Others just stated that whoever noticed this clearly had too much time on their hands.
One user wrote: "Nah, you must be a professional hater to notice this."
A second chipped in with: "I'm sorry, but whoever noticed this needs a more fulfilling hobby, like, oh my God."
After copping it left, right, and center over the image, Latto herself took to social media to put an end to the accusations.
"Never photoshopped a crowd lmao,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories.
"[I] expanded it so it would fit in my Instagram swipe without getting cut off but it was clearly f**ked up so I didn’t end up using it."
She added: "Just posted the wrong version by accident on Twitter, babes.”
Latto then indicated she wouldn't be discussing the issue any further, by simply ending her statement with 'next' and an emoji surrounded by love hearts.
Well, that is that.
Time to move on, people.
