MRC Shouts 'Pedophilia!' At Snapchat
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media Research Center knows a good, inflammatory narrative when it sees one, and it saw a huge one it could smear Snaspchat with, as Corinne Weaver detailed in a June 3 post:

A tech company has made a disturbing statement during the left-centric “Pride Month.”

For Snapchat, the LGBTQ might also include pedophiles. In the campaign for “Love Has No Labels” held by Snapchat, one of the options wasa “Love Has No Age” filter. While this filter appears to be defunct as of June 3, conservatives on Twitter pointed out the option over the weekend of June 1-2. Twitter user Ashley St. Clair posted a video of herself with the “Love has No Age” filter.

The filter had the options to say that love had no gender, race, or religion, as part of the mass-marketed Pride Month that infiltrates businesses and social media in June. But age did not seem to fit in the list, unless it was meant to justify pedophilia.

Needless to say, Weaver offered no actual evidence that Snapchat intended the filter to "justify pedophilia." Instead, she smeared Snapchat further, asserting that it "has a reputation for enabling pedophiles on the app," again baselessly portraying Snapchat as deliberately catering to pedophiles.

Such claims could be legally actionable of they cannot be proven, -- indeed, Weaver indeed provides no evidence for her suggestion that Snapchat is deliberately enabling pedophiles. The MRC might want to have a chat with a libel lawyer about this.
