Come on, guys. Bob doesn't deserve this.
We love 4/20. In fact, we all came in today in our pajamas to celebrate … mostly because a few of us have kick-ass animal pajamas, but also because we're planning on being asleep for a portion of the day.
But some people didn't just dress up in preparation of getting super, super high. SnapChat, in their infinite wisdom, decided to capitalize on the face-swap craze by offering one with Bob Marley, the patron saint of marijuana. (Maybe the actual saint is Snoop, but we're not sure.)
It basically turns you into a monster-version of Bob:
This was their flimsy explanation:
“The lens we launched today was created in partnership with the Bob Marley Estate, and gives people a new way to share their appreciation for Bob Marley and his music. Millions of Snapchatters have enjoyed Bob Marley’s music, and we respect his life and achievements.”
And of course, Internet idiots started complaining about "blackface" and racist and blah blah blah, but really, it just seems like stupid marketing for Bob. He was a great musician, and he doesn't deserve this kind of treatment. Having his ghost hologram-projected onto the faces of a bunch of white bro-brahs higher than giraffe pussy is no way for a music legend to be treated.
Ugh. Poor guy. He deserves better.
