‘I think I’ll just stick to the ‘gram’
Snapchat was dealt a heavy blow last year when Kylie Jenner commented about no longer using the app, causing stocks to plummet and reportedly prompting a $1.5 billion loss.
But if they thought that was bad, they won’t know what’s hit them this week as Selena Gomez (until recently the most followed person on Instagram) has just come to the same conclusion - and for a pretty shocking reason.
The 'Wolves' singer took to her Snapchat this week to reveal a shocking discovery she had made about its filters, explaining the issues that she had with it.
The revelation in question? The filters all changed her eye colour from brown to blue - something the 26-year-old took issue with.
‘Literally every single Snapchat filter has the blue eyes,’ she explained in a series of videos of herself applying different filters. ‘What if you have brown eyes? Am I supposed to have these eyes...to look good?’
She continued: ‘They have all the blue eyes for all the ones that are, like, really pretty and then I put on this [a joke filter] and it's like brown...brown eyes.’
Clearly unimpressed with the platform’s filtering, she signed off concluding: ‘I think I’ll just stick to the ‘gram,’ before stating: ‘Brown eyes are beautiful, everyone’.
Snapchat has not yet responded.
