If you’ve been looking ALL. OVER. for your Insta Stories Gifs today, we have an update for you: Instagram and Snapchat have both *hopefully temporarily* disabled the Giphy integration after a racial slur gif (that is so not worth linking here) was found on both platforms.
An Instagram spokesperson tells TechCrunch “This type of content has no place on Instagram. We have stopped our integration with Giphy as they investigate the issue.” The company confirms the change has been made but might take some time to propagate to all users.
That’s why we can’t have nice things, you guys.
