Snapchat accused of disrespecting Palestinians
Snapchat has just begun its West Bank snap after coming under extreme scrutiny from the Arab world on twitter
Snapchat started a West Bank snap Thursday after condemnation from the Arab world for posting a Tel Aviv snap on the anniversary of last summer’s Gaza war.
As part of its “City Life” campaign, Snapchat on Tuesday added a “Tel Aviv Life” geofilter that allowed the world to witness life in the Israeli city. Israeli citizens were seen enjoying themselves on beautiful beaches.
Arabs took to Twitter and Facebook to denounce the video-messaging application’s lack of respect and empathy toward the Palestinians. Snapchat responded by starting a “West Bank Life” geofilter.
