FaceApp apologizes for its “racist filter”

The function clarified the skin tone to make the person “photograph” more attractive

The Faceapp application, which has been used over the last few days, has been criticized by a large number of users on the networks for being considered to contain a racist filter. Now, those responsible have apologized.

The app filter clears the skin color and changes parts of the face like the nose to make it narrower and longer. In addition, if the person wears glasses, the filter also eliminates them.

The company’s CEO behind the application, Yaroslav Goncharov, has apologized in a statement. “We deeply regret this unquestionably serious matter,” said the Wireless Lab executive, noting that this is an “unfortunate side effect” and that it was not the “desired run.”

FaceApp works with artificial intelligence, combining elements of the photo with others of different faces. Now the company has changed the name of the filter in question to “Spark” to eliminate the positive connotations of Hot, its former name. The firm claims to be working to resolve the error as soon as possible definitively.
