An actual wheelchair user has recreated Kylie Jenner’s controversial Interview magazine cover shot. And we like hers a whole lot more than the original.

Erin Tatum, a 24-year-old who has cerebral palsy, snapped her own version of Jenner’s picture on Thursday night and uploaded it to Tumblr.

“I tried my best to create a more authentic version of Kylie Jenner’s Interview cover, given that I’m, you know, actually disabled and a real life wheelchair user,” Tatum wrote beneath the photo. “I can barely get people to make eye contact with me, let alone land a cover shoot. If being in a wheelchair is trendy now, I’ve apparently been a trendsetter since before Kylie was born.”
