No more gifs: Instagram refused big a month after launch

The only good thing that came out of Instagram's newest update is gone, being those hilarious and adorable GIF's users could add to their stories.

In conversation with TechCrunch, a Snapchat spokesperson stated that the company is very sorry. The GIF reportedly appeared when a user searched for the word "Crime".

For weeks we punctuated our night out snaps and selfies with animated emblems, but in recent days, Instagram users have complained that the GIF action no longer works on their phones. It could take some time for your smartphone app to update to reflect the changes. In a statement to TechCrunch, Snapchat said it removed the racist GIF and disable Giphy as soon as they were made aware. "We have stopped our integration with Giphy as they investigate the issue".

According to the newspaper, one of the users of the social network under the name Lyauna Augmon posted a screenshot where you can see the offensive sticker from Giphy with racist overtones, and asked the founder of Instagram Kevin Systrom with a request to remove the controversial content.

It included a monkey and a man with a microphone with the speech bubble: "Keep cranking Bonzo, the numbers just keep on climbing".

Giphy also appears to have removed the GIF.

Snapchat first confirmed the decision to pull support for GIPHY. The GIPHY staff is also further reviewing every GIF sticker by hand and should be finished shortly.

'After investigation of the incident, this sticker was available due to a bug in our content moderation filters specifically affecting GIF stickers.

GIPHY is the leading platform for hosting GIFs and also has its own GIF keyboard for iOS.

Snapchat only recently integrated support for GIPHY in late February, enabling users to jazz-up their photos and videos with moving images curated by the team at GIPHY.

'We take full responsibility for these recent events and sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended'.

The slip-up is embracing for Instagram's parent company, Facebook. It has created suspicion on Messenger Kids' app of Facebook, which consists of Giphy.
