Scott Disick And Brody Jenner Are Facing Backlash For Using Filters That Change Their Race

Why the hell would you do/post that?

I'll just get right into it. Right now Twitter has been lighting up Scott Disick and Brody Jenner since both of them posted a set of pictures in which they used an app that changes the person's race.

"You need to try this new feature in the Gradient app," Brody wrote. "It's crazy 😂."

You need to try this new feature in the gradient app, it’s crazy 😂

"Tried new filters in the Gradient app," Scott wrote. "Which one is better?"

Tried new filters in the Gradient app Which one is better? 😂

Scott used the "Europe," "Asia," and "India" filters, while Brody used the "Africa," "Asia," and "India" filters. First and foremost, people's races and cultures shouldn't be reduced to a filter for others to try on. It's offensive and weird, as is asking people to "pick" which is the best.

Needless to say, their posts faced a lot of backlash on Twitter:

@BrodyJenner can’t believe you pressed send tweet on this....

Like, yikes.

"You have enough money to pay people to stop you from posting shit like this," one person wrote.

Notes app apology incoming methinks:

"There are some sponsorships people shouldn't take — this is one of them," another person wrote.

@BrodyJenner There are some sponsorships people shouldn’t take, this is one of them.

All in all, people were just really disappointed:

I wake up to digital Blackface... *sigh* https://t.co/SJZenGlWRn

The Gradient ads from Brody and Scott have beat Khloe's Febreze ad in terms of bleakness

Blackface, yellowface, and brownface, all in one tweet?! Wow, someone who truly does it all! 😭😭😭 https://t.co/9vDUz9Io2M

Neither Scott nor Brody has responded to the backlash, but we will update if they do.
