The hate speech crisis has been averted.
If you thought Snapchat was the fazed out social media app that nobody uses anymore think again because a lot of people have blasted the app for a recent hack. Users who looked at the map feature this morning noticed that "New York" was changed to "Jewtropolis" and according to Snapchat it's not their fault. The app uses a third party mapping data that Citi Bike also uses and the hackers affected both companies.
Snapchat replied to a user on Twitter explain how they have "been subject to vandalism" and "are working with our partner Mapbox to get this fixed immediately."
"The act of hate speech that has affected our map users has been resolved," MapBox said on Twitter. "We will not accept hatred on our platform. We removed the attack within an hour of discovery and this is cleared on all maps at this time."
