Over the weekend, a picture of Elijah Holyfield, a Georgia running back who happens to be the son of former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield, went viral. It went viral because the young man’s arms and shoulders were freaking massive.
Evander Holyfield’s son appears to be somewhat interested in weight lifting… pic.twitter.com/KkbkfvY3ac

Well, the person who actually took the picture on the left there has since made it clear that it was a doctored image.
And it was doctored by no small amount, either.
The photo of Elijah Holyfield on the left is a picture I took and own the rights to.
The photo on the right is the same photo which somebody photoshopped to make his arms look bigger for absolutely no reason.
A) Stop stealing it
B) Don’t be fooled by bad photoshop

Clicking between the two pictures, it’s clear that someone put some extra pounds and inches on his frame, quite unnecessarily, we might add. After all, this young man is a physical marvel, without the doctored image.
