Fans question if ‘Kardashians’ editors gave Kim a fake tear

A TikTok user has gone viral for accusing the editors of Hulu’s “The Kardashians” of adding a “fake tear” to Kim Kardashian’s confessional interview in the first episode of Season 2.

“Y’all please tell me you see this cgi tear on kardashians,” the young woman, named Michelle Driscoll, captioned the clip.

The scene in question showed Kim, 41, crying over her wishes for her sister Khloé Kardashian to find true love after welcoming a son via surrogacy with Tristan Thompson following yet another cheating scandal.

The Skims founder can be seen getting emotional and pats her eyes to wipe away the waterworks, but does not touch one of her tears.

“She doesn’t touch it! That’s a fake tear!” Driscoll alleges in the video, which has received more than 138,000 “likes” as of Friday morning.

People in the comments section, however, were divided over the computer-generated imagery (CGI) theory.

“ngl [not gonna lie] I had the same thought when I watched,” one person commented.

Another agreed, “Honestly, who gets a tear in the center of their eye ??? 😂”

However, some called out Driscoll for being one of the famous family’s many critics who are “obsessed” with nitpicking them.

“Yall literally watch everything they do just to find anything to hate over. Obsessed behavior,” one person commented.

Another wrote, “did you stretch before doing all this reaching ??”

A third pointed out why she may have not patted he alleged fake tear, noting, “Bc if you touch it the tear will ruin the makeup. If you just let it fall it won’t ruin it as much.”

A TikTok user claimed that the fact Kim did not touch her tear proved her point.

This is not the first time the “Kardashians” editors have been called out for potentially sprinkling a bit of TV magic into the reality show.

In June, fans called out the fact that a family meeting seemed to be staged two months after Thompson’s paternity scandal broke in late 2021.

In this instance, Kourtney Kardashian’s outfit exposed the mishap because fans realized she had been wearing the exact same look when out in Malibu in January 2022.

Khloé, 38, later explained on an episode of “Hot Ones” why there are re-shoots for the show sometimes.

“It’s not that those things didn’t happen, but sometimes they didn’t catch the audio or sometimes the mics go out,” the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum shared.

“I understand that a lot of [the scenes] really might be how it was, but they might just have to redo something or transition to things.”
