This is not my first cover with True Love that hasn't gone well: Lerato Kganyago

True Love magazine is in hot water for over-retouching photos again. This time, from the shoot of their latest June cover star Lerato Kganyago.

Fans online have slammed the publication for over-editing images of the radio DJ and TV sensation.

Kganyago spoke to #NightTalk's Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo, and said that this was not the first time she has been left unimpressed by photos of her on True Love.

Listen to the full conversation:

On Monday, other female celebrities showed their solidarity on Twitter and expressed disappointment in the cover, adding that it detracts from the moving article about the broadcasting star.

Kganyago, who claims she raised issue with the Photoshopped images before release, says she has never hidden her so-called imperfections. On Twitter, she wrote:

I post numerous pics of me with no make, my "rolls", and my cellulite...Don't use "body shaming" to try and humiliate me...doesn't work!

The publication responded by releasing untouched images of Kganyago, in an attempt to justify the editing, which has been largely referred to as body-shaming on Twitter.

But the before and after images raised even more more criticism from women online.

On their website, True Love claims that the retouching tool is intended to "enhance, colour correct and highlight the best features."

The magazine is no stranger to Photoshop controversy and has been slammed for the editing on several previous issues.

Below are the before and after images released by True Love magazine:
