Megan Fox complains that her AI profile photos have been sexualised by viral app

Not to mention that shaming someone – celebrity or not – into believing that they should have no say in how they are sexualised by the world because of what they have chosen to share in the past, is misogynistic. 

As one follower pointed out: “The misogyny in comments. She has talked about the industry sexualising her over the years, the world owes her an apology and instead you keep sending her hate.”

But this goes beyond Megan, because the app doesn’t seem to discriminate against which women it sexualises. As other users have commented. “Lensa gave me a boob job! Thanks AI!!!” tweeted another user who also received a naked headshot cropped right above the breasts. “Anyone else get loads [of] boobs in their Lensa pictures or just me?” asked another.

While other women feel that their faces have been “smoothed out” or made to look younger. 

And the scariest side of all this? Not only can anyone upload your photo to the app – with or without your permission – and, in effect, create soft porn, the app also makes no allowances for age (Lensa AI currently listed as appropriate for ages four and up on the Apple App Store). In an essay for Wired,  writer Olivia Snow wrote that she submitted “a mix of childhood photos and [current] selfies” to the app and received back “fully nude photos of an adolescent and sometimes childlike face but a distinctly adult body”.

For many women, including Megan Fox, it’s clear that the app is violating our rights, perpetuating misogyny and is based on, at best, shaky ethics. We’d encourage everyone, not just women, to stop using the app. 

GLAMOUR has contacted Lensa and is awaiting comment.
