Snapchat Denies Claims Amber Heard Being The Inspiration Behind Popular Crying Face Filter

Snapchat has denied claims that their latest crying face filter was inspired by Amber Heard sobbing in court during her trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The actress was brought to tears last week when she gave her testimony in the $100 million defamation case, as she recalled the alleged abuse she endured while married to the Edward Scissorhands star.

For those unfamiliar with the filter, it’s a reality lens that superimposes over people’s faces and ultimately makes the person appear to be weeping in a rather comical manner.

Following its release on the platform last week, the camera add-on has already gained a whopping 1.3 billion impressions and has been plastered all over social media platforms, including Twitter and Instagram.

However, people started speculating whether Snapchat was making a slight dig at Amber, who they believed expressed an identical facial expression to the feature that millions of people are currently using on the app.

“The Amber Heard filter is going hard, and they are killing me,” one person joked, while another echoed similar words, writing, “New #AmberHeard Snapchat filter just dropped. Am dead.”

According to TMZ, a rep for the multimedia messaging platform insisted that there were no ties between Amber and the crying face filter they’ve released to the public. While the timing may seem rather coincidental, it was further mentioned that the feature had been in development for six months before it launched on the app, long before the Aquaman actress’ trial began.
