When this Disney Channel star posted a photo of her fashion in March 2016, she said it was "faux fur."

As TMZ reports, however, the fur wasn't faux — it's a $1,700 Alice and Olivia jacket made of genuine rabbit and fox fur.

Bella seems to have edited the caption to omit the little mistruth.

These members of the indie band YACHT pictured posted a Facebook update in May 2016 saying their sex tape had been hacked.

“Just because we are public figures does not mean we asked for this,” they wrote. “Like anyone, we still deserve to have a choice about what we share with the world. Today we no longer have that choice.”

A day later, they admitted the hack was all part of a publicity-seeking hoax — and they immediately got backlash from fans who had expressed sincere concern as well as those who have been victimized by revenge porn.

Then they apologized on their website. “It was never our intention to mock or make light of anyone who has been a victim of a privacy violation like the one we mentioned,” they wrote. “We take full responsibility for what has happened, and we are truly sorry.”

"It's honestly too good to be true," Britney wrote on Instagram alongside this pic of grilled corn she ostensibly made.

A Twitter user, however, realized that this photo — from a Tyler Florence recipe on the Food Network website — is one of the first Google Image Search results for "Mexican grilled corn."

True, Brit might have been praising the recipe... but if that were the case, why didn't she provide a link and/or credit?

“All of my homemade greatness,” Khloe wrote on a picture of baked goods this Thanksgiving, apparently not seeing fit to give credit where credit is due. The pies are perfect matches of ones offered by Los Angeles bakery Sweet Lady Jane.

Homegirl even took photos of the pre-made pies on an oven rack!

In a now-deleted post this September, Donald Trump’s beloved daughter posted a photo of herself in her Manhattan digs readying to go out for a “date night” with her “love”... on the same night she was in California watching her pops participate in the CNN Republican Debate.

“New jet for Christmas, and she’s beautiful,” the Biebs wrote in a December 2014 instagram of a private plane. He neglected to mention, however, that it was a charter jet, not a gift to himself.

Diddy posted an (obviously enhanced) photo of a solar eclipse over the Los Angeles skyline in August 2014, labeling it with “#DiddyView.” The only problem is that it was posted by a photographer two weeks prior.

Similarly, on an April 2014 trip to Thailand, this reality queen posted a beautiful photo of a beach in the Southeast Asian country — never saying it wasn’t her snapshot. In fact, it’s one of Google Image Search’s first results when you search for “Thailand beach.”

Thank you for the beautiful memories Thailand

After this rapper posted an Instagram photo and a Vine video of himself holding stacks of 100 dollar bills circa July 2014, it didn’t take long for fans to realize the stacks were filled not with Benjamins but with blank paper.

Bey’s social media Photoshopping hardly befits a queen! Telltale signs of digital slimming and thigh gapping have been spotted on at least four of her candid snapshots.

Call the fire department, ‘cause these celebs’ pants are on fire!

Moments after Shad Moss aka Bow Wow bragged about catching a private jet to New York City on Instagram, a Snapchat user apparently snapped a pic of the actor flying commercial.

Worse yet, as HuffPost notes, the photo Bow Wow posted seems to be a stock photo, as it can be found on a Fort Lauderdale transportation service website.
