Shay posted a pic of herself looking out across the skyline in the Bund area of Shanghai. “View so nice it almost looks… fake,” Shay captioned the pic.
She also posted a pic of herself standing in front of the Montane Mansion in Hong Kong.
The actress’ posts comes days after the site Stylecaster called out Shay for appearing to steal a pic from a travel blog. The Freeform star shared a pic of Hong Kong’s Monster Building, and a follower noticed a mouse curser was oddly in the bottom left corner of the pic. A simple reverse image search located the pic on a blog run by Canon.
The site also discovered that Shay posted a pic of pastel-colored buildings and captioned it #ShaycationHongKong, but the pic is of buildings in Tokyo, Japan, and appears to be a 2014 photograph by photographer Jan Vranovsky. A fan noticed the mistake and commented, “Your Hong Kong looks a lot like Japan.”
In addition, Shay shared a pic of the Jing’an Temple in Shanghai, which featured the same tourists in the same spot as a pic posted by another Instagrammer in 2016. Despite the similarities, Shay hasn’t confirmed or denied fans’ suspicions, but she has started adding photo credit to her posts.
