Many girls look to the Pretty Little Liars cast for hair, style and beauty inspiration and eagerly await the posters that mark the show’s new seasons — which tend to be both glamorous and dramatic.

But there is one girl who isn’t such a big fan of what appears to be the poster for the second half of season 4 — despite the fact that she’s on it. Ashley Benson (second from left) took to Twitter and Instagram to express her disappointment with what she felt was an overly photoshopped rendition of herself and her friends.

PHOTOS: Vote on star style in “Last Night’s Look!”

“Saw this floating around….hope it’s not the poster,” she wrote on Instagram. Our faces in this were from 4 years ago…..and we all look ridiculous. Way too much photo shop. We all have flaws. No one looks like this. It’s not attractive.”

ABC Family had no comment, but Benson’s fans overwhelmingly supported her sentiment. The actress retweeted a few of the responses, many of which were like the below:

Benson herself followed up on Instagram to thank fans for their support, writing the below:

Big kiss to all of you ❤️

I have so much respect for her! Photoshop gives young girls unrealistic aspirations. The fact that she stood up against her own show’s advertising in order to make an honest point shows so much courage!

Ashley is a pretty girl and I am happy to see that she is satisfied enough with her natural looks that she has the sense to disapprove of photoshop that completely distorts the looks of the subject. I am shocked every time I see those photoshopped pictures in magazines, movie posters, etc and the celebrities do not admit that the pictures look nothing like them. What kind of fantasy world do these people live in?

She’s right! That looks awful. Unless they were going for a wax doll effect!

Damn @Nancy, you sound bitter
