Church group uses Photoshop tricks to protest Whitney Houston funeral
Note to readers: We chose not to publish the Westboro group’s offensive image. Instead, we decided to publish this nice picture of a kitten. However, if you would like to see the WBC’s example of bad Photoshop, then click here.
A controversial US church group known for picketing high-profile events has allegedly used Photoshop tricks to claim it protested Whitney Houston’s funeral in New Jersey.
The Westboro Baptist Church, which in the past has picketed at the funerals of public figures and military personnel to protest what it believes is America’s acceptance of homosexuality, has apparently tried to convince its followers it protested the pop singer’s funeral by publishing a Photoshopped photo of the group at the event.
Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro’s pastor, Fred Phelps, Tweeted over the weekend: “Did my friends @BET see these lovelies? Such fun singing to @OccupyWallSt This picket is rocking the house! @NJ_News”
The group then posted an image to Twitter supposedly showing the group protesting at the church where Whitney Houston’s funeral was being held.
Local press, however, claim that no Westboro protesters were at the location shown in the image, suggesting it was a Photoshop trick.
Phelps has not responded to the Photoshop claim in her Twitter feed as of the time of writing.
