Snapchat has been criticised for not being representative on its Eid-al-Fitr story. People said the story only seemed to include people celebrating Eid from Mecca and Dubai.
People expressed their disappointment with Snapchat on Twitter.
Last year the hashtag #BlackOutEidwas used to spread selfies of people celebrating Eid. The hashtag was started by @krennylavitz, who told BuzzFeed last year she “wanted to see how other Black Muslims celebrated Eid”. This year it's being used to remind Snapchat that black Muslims exist.
Soon the fiery selfies started rolling in. 🔥
