Grammy-nominated Latto performed some of her hit songs, including Soufside and Big Energy, during the first weekend of Coachella on Sunday.

She later posted several photos from the performance for her more than 10 million followers on Instagram with the caption: “LATTOCHELLA”

One picture stood out from the others, showing Latto from behind as she stared out at the crowd.

At first glance, there seems to be nothing wrong with the photo but several eagle-eyed fans noticed that some people in the crowd were replicated on the photo’s edges.

“Photoshopping ur crowd is sad,” said another person.

“Say she got a problem, imaginary smoke/B**ch, you said it’s up, then put on the floor,” Latto continues.

Despite the comments pointing out the edited photo and ongoing feud with Minaj, Latto, who was born Alyssa Michelle Stephens in Columbus, Ohio, still received universal praise from most for an epic Coachella performance.
