The woman wore a horizontal-striped oversized sweater with black track pants that had a vertical pinstripe running down the middle. Twitter ignored her clothes and promptly pointed out the photos made her legs appear really skinny, like really.
Can you see it?

The pinstripe on the pants made her perfectly normal legs look like something that belonged to a cartoon character.
Twitter immediately noticed the optical illusion. Some even expressed concern about her health

The internet really loves optical illusion. Earlier in February, an optical illusion featuring two identical pictures went viral. People on the Internet were driven crazy by the fact that the two identical pictures appeared different when placed side by side. Click for more trending news
