Paris Hilton Would Like Everyone To Know Her 'Stop Being Poor' Singlet Was Photoshopped

“Don’t believe everything you read,” Paris warned, before revealing what the singlet actually said.

Paris Hilton – 2000s idol, possible selfie inventor, fashion trailblazer, gay wedding officiator and OG influencer – has taken to TikTok to clear something up.

You know that image of her wearing the singlet singlet emblazoned with the words, "stop being poor"? The image that is embedded in the very fabric of the internet? The image that single-handedly ended poverty? As it turns out, she apparently never wore that singlet. We've been duped, folks. We've been duped.

This morning, Paris posted a video to TikTok where she showed proof that this iconic image had been, in fact, photoshopped.

"So, there's this photo online of me, I'm sure you've seen it," a disembodied Paris begins. "I never wore that shirt. This is completely photoshopped. Everyone thinks it's real, but that's not the truth."

She then reveals to us what the singlet actually said, and my god – it's not exactly classism anymore but it's still a solid burn, keeping with that scathing Paris energy we all know and love.

"Stop being desperate," she reads out in her trademark whisper, pointing to the original image of the singlet in question.

"Don't believe everything you read," Paris finishes. A sobering warning to all of us in these troubled times.

Anyway, we're still living for the 'Stop Being Desperate' singlet – where can I buy one, please? I need this.
