    Snapchat’s Weed-Themed Bob Marley Filter Called Out As ‘Digital Blackface’.. in the detail ..Snapchat thought it had found a way to have a little fun on Wednesday, April 20, with a Bob Marley themed graphic. But the company went a little too far, according to irate users online. To acknowledge 4/20, known as "Weed Day," Snapchat created a special "lens" that morphed people's faces into Bob Marley, the late reggae icon. The lens added dreadlocks, a crochet slouch cap, changed the shape of eyes and noses, and darkened skin color. People flooded Twitter with 
    accusations that Snapchat had created a blackface filter.
