An Instagrammer's Sister Called Her Out For Taking A Fake Hiking Pic

As the saying goes, a picture says a thousand words. Now, this can really mean many things. Most popularly, it means that each still photograph has a story behind it, right? Pretty common knowledge.

Now-a-days, photos on social media really tell 10 thousand words, with people editing their photos or exaggerating scenarios. Most people get away with it, but you'd better be careful if your sibling is around to catch your lies. That's what one Instagrammer learned the hard way.

Social media is great. It allows people to be able to connect with friends, family, and strangers all over the world.

People are able to share their experiences and create a community of sorts around them.

And we know social media has allowed people to work in fields they would have never imagined would be possible 10 years ago.

Being a social media influencer is just as legitimate a job title is as being an entrepreneur is.

But, online authenticity has been a growing issue the more we interact online.

People are not necessarily actually who they say they are.

There are even television shows created around this concept.

If you're a reality TV buff, then you might remember MTV's show Catfish, a show about catching people online who are deceiving their love interests off-screen.

And recently, a Chinese vlogger's real identity was accidentally outed online when the animated filter she was using over her face glitched in front of thousands of her followers.

Talk about awkward!

At the end of the day, people who are being inauthentic will get caught eventually.

And that's exactly what happened, very quickly, to one young woman on Instagram.

Casey Sosnowski posted this photo of herself on Instagram.

She originally captioned it, "Nature is the ultimate healer to all our problems."

Load Comments

Everything seemed all fine and well!

Instagram | @caseyrsos

It appeared as though she was enjoying some time outside, maybe going for a walk in the woods.

However, a picture says a thousand words, and what lies behind this particular photo isn't what you might think it is.

Casey's own sister, Carly, called her bluff!

Load Comments

In a Twitter post, Carly posted a behind-the-scenes look at Casey's little photoshoot in the woods behind their home.

Carly wrote, "My sister said she was going hiking......"

Load Comments

......this is our backyard."

CAUGHT.

Carly really did that to her sis! It's pretty savage, but I know I wouldn't pass up this kind of opportunity to hilariously out my sister, too.

I mean, let's define "hiking," though.

Could she not technically go for a hike in their backyard if their backyard has a giant trail behind it?

Load Comments

She also included a screenshot of her sister's original Instagram caption as proof.

She did not back down with the receipts! If you're going to completely out your own sister on social media, you gotta come prepared.

Load Comments

The hilarious post has now gone viral, with over 40K retweets and over 270K likes.

Casey is definitely taking the attention well, even changing the caption of the original Instagram photo.

Casey's updated Instagram caption now reads, "Did I go hiking? No. Is this my backyard?...... Maybe."

Load Comments

The faux hiking perpetrator also has a sense of humor about her sis completely outing her.

Twitter | @carlysos3

Ah, sisterly love.

Load Comments

People are absolutely loving this.

Twitter | @bcas25

They love Casey's attention to detail, making sure to bring a full water bottle with her to really make it seem like she's going on a long hike.

Load Comments

This Twitter user even came to Casey's defence.

Twitter | @CREALATIVE

See? Who is to really say what a hike is! It's up to one's own definition of what hiking is. Maybe to some it's a brisk walk, maybe to others it's a 10-hour climb up a mountain.

Load Comments

This is what they say, isn't it.

Twitter | @MarkGutschmidt

And she sure did do that for The Gram! Her post now has over 5K likes!

Regardless, the lesson here is, if you're going to take a photo of you faking an activity, make sure your siblings are out of the house and off the property.

Would you publicly out your sibling for faking a photo? Let us know!
