Tracee Ellis Ross has chimed in on social media debates regarding her derrière.

The Black-ish actress took to Instagram after a viral photo of her from 2015 began circulating on the Internet. The image in question featured Ross wearing an all-black, mock neck latex bodysuit with pointed-toe stiletto Christian Louboutin pumps and her hair in a chic, high top knot. She strikes a demure pose as she shows off her enviable figure for the camera. The photo was a behind-the-scenes shot from Ross's stint as the host for the 2015 BET Awards along with her Black-ish co-star Anthony Anderson.

As the image made its rounds on social media, fans praised Ross for her killer fashion sense and silhouette, but Ross quickly took to Instagram to clarify that the photo had been altered. The actress shared a side-by-side photo of the original snap alongside the edited image to compare "the original—my actual booty" versus "someone's photoshopped version."

Ross proved that little offense was taken to the altered pic, joking, "...looks like someone tried to round me up to the nearest dollar" with a laughing emoji.

It's safe to assume that Ross is used to her sartorial selections causing a positive stir on social media. Just last week, the actress stunned in a gold lame ruffled gown by Alexandre Vauthier for the 2020 Emmy Awards that had fans buzzing.

"How fun to get dressed up!" wrote Ross on Instagram. "Can’t say I miss the frenetic energy of the red carpet or wearing high heels, but boy do I miss a pretty dress!!"
