I’m a hot 48-year-old but people see me in real life & recoil in horror…I’m a catfish queen & am accused of witchcraft | The SunApril 12, 2023
A SELF-PROCLAIMED "Catfish Queen" has gone viral with her latest incredible transformation – but TikTok users claim it's "false advertising."
Patricia Lichtenberger previously hit the headlines after revealing her clever make-up tricks which fans say make her look decades younger.
Since starting her TikTok journey in 2016, where she showcases her incredible talent, the 48-year-old has been dubbed a "catfish" online.
Now, the beauty influencer, who is originally from Texas, but living in Kansas, US, has revealed her latest show-stopping transformation – created using just a filter.
Patricia told NeedToKnow.Online: "Back then I started posting my make-up videos and people called me ugly or would say 'What’s wrong with your face?'.
"They then called me a catfish and I knew what that was, but that wasn’t my mission.

In the clip, which has racked up 7 million views and over 256,000 likes, she shows herself before, completely natural with no make-up or filter on.
