Apple and Adobe Are Creepy, Tone-Deaf, And Icky?

Can someone explain to me what is so "creepy, tone-deaf and icky" about this demonstration put on by Adobe at the Apple event? I honestly don't know what people are bitching about.

Today, Adobe used its portion of the Apple event to demonstrate an impressive suite of apps that allow iPad Pro users to manipulate and layout images and text. But the way they did it was creepy and tone-deaf. They could have manipulated any photo, and they chose a woman's face. With a twist of the finger, the Adobe demonstrator manipulated her relaxed lips into a smile. It was heckling reimagined as art, and it was icky. That the audience applauded for glamour photoshopping didn't help.
