Social Media Reacts To Snapchat's Racist 'yellowface' Filter

It’s glaring many users of social media are very active with trends and update of latest features from their favorite social media apps.

Snapchat; the photo-messaging app with its varieties of filters created a new filter embedded with features looking like a contorted facial expression to give users puffed out cheeks, with distorted eyes and funny toothy grins.

The new filter is a “disgusting” caricature that turns users' faces into Asian caricatures.

However, members of the public took to Twitter to express their opinions referring the filter a “racist” and labeling it "yellowface."
