Snapchat and Instagram temporarily remove Giphy
|Snapchat and Instagram temporarily remove Giphy|
Sad news for fans of animation on Instagram and Snapchat, where the services removed that feature that depends on the service Giphy after the emergence of racist images can be added to pictures and videos.
This procedure is effective pending the removal of the racial content and preventing its inclusion in the participants. Therefore, it is expected that the animation will be returned from the Giphy library at any time immediately after its removal to those racist images.
Snapchat spokesman confirmed that all the animation that can be included has PG rating which means that it is suitable for viewing by people over the age of 13 years, which is the age limit that Snapchat allows to use.
The animated picture shows the word "nigger" with a monkey-driven death meter and a white-skinned broadcaster with blonde hair talking about inciting black-skinned killers.
Snapchat added less than a month ago to include animation in collaboration with Giphy.
