Snapchat has pulled down its lens that landed it in hot water. The â€śYellow Faceâ€ť filter overlaid faces with slanted eyes and wide cheeks topped off with a bucktooth mouth.
According to the app developer, the app wonâ€™t be put back into circulation and was meant to be â€śplayful and never to offend.”
This quite the racist snapchat filter in my opinion pic.twitter.com/r9AfqhgZyc

This was not the first time the company has been labeled racist. In fact, just earlier this year, its â€śBob Marleyâ€ť filter flaunting dreadlocks on users and darkening their skin also copped some flak. The company later took down the filter.
