Selena Gomez pointed out a flaw in Snapchat's popular filters, and she has a pretty good point

Phillip Faraone/WireImageSelena Gomez is the third most-followed person on Instagram.
  • Selena Gomez recently recorded a series of videos on Snapchat, criticising the app’s filters.
  • “Literally every single Snapchat filter has the blue eyes,” she says in one video. “What if you have brown eyes? Am I supposed to have these eyes to like, look good?”
  • She noticed that many of the “ugly” or distorted filters use brown eyes: “I don’t understand. They have all the blue eyes for all the ones that are like, really ‘pretty.'”
  • Gomez concluded the series of videos by deciding to use Instagram’s story feature instead, and by announcing, “Brown eyes are beautiful, everyone.”

Selena Gomez recently posted a rare series of videos on social media, criticising a beauty standard found in Snapchat’s popular filters.

“Literally every single Snapchat filter has the blue eyes,” she says in one video. “What if you have brown eyes? Am I supposed to have these eyes to like, look good?”

While flipping between different filters, Gomez then noticed that many of the “ugly” or distorted filters use brown eyes.

“I don’t understand,” she says. “They have all the blue eyes for all the ones that are like, really ‘pretty.'”

Gomez concluded the series of videos by switching to record herself on Instagram’s story feature.

“I think I’ll just stick to the ‘gram,” she says. “Brown eyes are beautiful, everyone.”

While the videos posted on Gomez’s story have now disappeared, they were immortalised by a number of fan accounts.

Some fans related to Gomez’s brown-eyed struggle and applauded her message.

Though she has expressed her distaste for social media on numerous occasions, Gomez’s resolution to stick to Instagram makes perfect sense, considering she’s the third most-followed person on the app.

The 26-year-old was recently overtaken by Ariana Grande as the most-followed woman, and both are led by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Snapchat did not immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
