Snapchat is coming in for criticism after launching a Bob Marley filter on the anniversary of 4/20 - a so-called"celebration of marijuana".Some are angry at the reggae legend being portrayed as "nothing more than a weed mascot".Others say the filter is offensive because it encourages white users to "black up".
The day known as "4/20" seems to originate from a group of friendsin California back in 1971.They met after school at 4:20pm on 20 April and went in search of a crop of marijuana northwest of San Francisco.The farm was never actually discovered but the group smoked cannabis the whole time and began referring to the day as 4/20.
The term spread and it is still marked today, 45 years on.Snapchat users spotted the Bob Marley filter appear earlier.Image captionFans are angry he's being portrayed is a "weed icon" rather than a music iconIt's been called "pathetic" and "disrespectful" black-by some.Others questioned why Snapchat had chosen this anniversary and not the singer's birthday.And some say it is encouraging back-up".
Others just found it a bit weird.And annoying.Some just think everyone's overreacting.In a statement to Newsbeat, Snapchat said:"The lens we launched today was created in partnership with the Bob Marley Estate, and gives people a new way to share their appreciation for Bob Marley and his music."Millions of Snapchatters have enjoyed Bob Marley's music, and we respect his life and achievements."
