The new popular Snapchat filter displays users as a weeping, grumbling mess that makes the Internet believe it may be inspired Amber Heard … a theory that is entirely BS.
If you regularly use a ghost app, you’ve probably seen this feature – it’s an augmented reality lens that you can throw on a mug, changing your facial expression to a cheerful sad and emotional … and it has children hooked because many of these videos have now gone viral.
While it may be a hit … it has also led to new rumors / jokes – namely that Snapchat executives probably used Amber cried last week on the stand as a drawing here.
Despite the rampant speculation, we’re here to tell you otherwise … Snap spokesman tells TMZ that it’s just not true that the lens is inspired by Amber Heard, and if you think about it from logistics – it’s just not true . fold.
We were told that this specific filter – which just came out on Friday – had been in operation for six months … so it was developed long before Amber ever offered her tearful testimony. More importantly, Snapchat tells us that they will never play with the DV case.
Another says it has nothing to do with Amber … the fact that Snap recently released a filter that does the exact opposite (big smiley), so naturally – a sad face followed.
As we said, the Crying Face Filter has been in vogue since its debut last week – we’ve been told it has already garnered more than 1.3 billion hits on Snapchat – and has been especially used in NFL circles where some of the league’s biggest stars had fun shedding false tears for her followers and friends … and, frankly, it’s very funny.
Which isn’t funny … spreading fake news and misinformation – and the AH connection is just that.
