Selena Gomez often finds herself on the list of celebrities who are on social media but not someone who invests a large part of their time on Instagram or Snapchat. For someone who is not a super active user of the gram and social media apps, Selena recently picked a bone with Snapchat for its 'pretty filters'. The singer took to Snapchat to express her extreme distaste for the platform's filters. And well, we have to say that Selena does have a strong point. 

The 'Back To You' singer posted clips of her trying out several Snap filters and noticed one weird thing: All the filters - especially the "pretty" ones -changed her eye colour to blue. This definitely did not go down well with Selena and it instantly bothered her. 

“Literally every single Snapchat filter has blue eyes,” Selena said in the now-expired story. “But…what if you have brown/black eyes? Am I supposed to have these eyes ... to like ... look good?” In another clip, she also tried out the enlarged-nose filter and pointed out that the the filter uses a different eye colour for that. “They use my brown eyes for this one,” she said. “I don't understand; they have all the blue eyes for the [filters] that are really pretty.”

Well, considering the kind of impact social media has on our daily lives, corporates need to take Selena's point of view should be taken into consideration. Particularly in this day and age, where scores of young girls and women are still fixated with being a shade lighter or fair toned. As for Selena, she finished her story asserting that brown eyes are indeed beautiful and said, "I think I'll just stick to the 'gram."  Time for Snapchat to take note?
