Model from Target Photoshop Fail Makes Light of the Blunder on Ellen

The Target Photoshop blunder last month attracted a LOT of bad press for the company. Target was called out in a big way, they had to come out and apologize to the public, and we doubt they’ll ever shop out their Photoshop work en masse for cheap again.
