With this Bob Marley Snapchat filter, the future of blackface is now! At least that's what some people are saying after seeing the Bob Marley filter in honor of 4/20, that celebrated holiday where people who peaked in high school skip work to smoke weed. It's making a lot of people upset:

But the blackface issue isn't the only problem. Bob Marley isn't really associated with 4/20 in any way. Sure, he's a famous Rastafarian and pot is associated with that religion but people are taking issue with the idea that that's all there is to it.

DJ Khaled decided to take a spin on his jet skis at night. That didn't turn out well for him and he got very lost. In the face of adversity, he managed to maintain his cool and kept everyone updated on Snapchat. 

At first he's still near civilization but he realizes he's lost. He uses Snapchat to issue a call for help. 

After a while things start to get dangerous. 

Everything goes dark, hope he's ok. 

Luckily, everything turned out fine. He managed to make it home safe and celebrate his feet returning to the ground!

A fiery airplane crash in Ohio that killed all nine passengers on board was captured by one teen who just happened to be on Snapchat at the same time.

Paige McVeigh was in her Akron apartment when she captured and tweeted her reaction to the plane crash, which happened in another part of the complex she lives in.

The teen can be seen hearing a loud noise, looking toward a bright light and yelling "Oh my God!" before the video ends.

WJW reports that the small airplane crashed about two miles away from Akron Fulton International Airport.

All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers, died on impact. No one was in the portion of the apartment building that was hit at the time of the crash.

This one really stinks.

UFC star Urijah Faber had a very eventful party after a woman stormed into his house, locked herself in his bathroom and pooped everywhere.

Faber was entertaining guests at his Sacramento home where he captured the entire event on Snapchat. The police eventually showed up and escorted the very stinky woman away.

If there was one good thing from this tale, it was this: Faber made some new friends.

Imgur user mrpatata did two good deeds Sept. 28.

First, he saw a crow with a head stuck in a fence and saved it.

Second, he documented the proceedings and shared them.

He possibly did a third good deed by naming the rescued bird 'Russell Crow', depending on your appreciation of puns.

We consider it three good deeds.

Social media can be a real pit of despair.

Stephanie Hernandez of Arkansas posted some pictures to Snapchat, Sept. 27, of her boyfriend Rafael Gonzalez in various poses holding a gun to her head. It wasn't long after that she was found dead of a gun shot wound.

Daily Dot has more details on this sad story:

In one of the snaps, the gun is close to Hernandez's head. In another, Hernandez casually posted the phrase "Strap Chat" over the pic—referencing the slang term that means you're carrying a gun.

Hours later, Hernandez was dead. The 21-year-old mother of two young girls was discovered with a gunshot wound. According to the New York Daily News, police found the house "ransacked, with blood all over the floor."

Gonzalez was arrested on Monday. According to Arkansas's KARK, the 20-year-old was charged with murdering his girlfriend, is being held without bond, and faces an initial hearing on Tuesday morning.

Be nice to each other, people.

Snapchat will charge you 99 cents to replay snaps.

Snapchat wants to undermine the very foundation on which it was built. And it will probably be really successful.

The temporary messaging app received its most recent update Sept. 15 and it included a wealth of new features like new interactive filters called Lenses and achievable Trophies.

It also included something called Paid Replays which, as described by Business Insider, will really open up the platform.

Now, Snapchat users will be allowed to replay more snaps, but it will cost them. They'll be able to purchase three replays for $.99 to use whenever they want, but they can't use them to replay the same snap over and over again.

"We introduced Replay in Additional Services almost two years ago, and we've used it to relive those amazing moments (or the ones we weren't paying attention to...) just one more time before they disappear," Snapchat writes on its company blog. "We've provided one Replay per Snapchatter per day, sometimes frustrating the millions of Snapchatters who receive many daily Snaps deserving of a Replay. But then we realized — a Replay is like a compliment! So why stop at just one?"

It's an interesting move for the company that has grown enormously over the past year. Although the app's popularity began with teenagers hiding their maybe illicit messages from the prying of their parents, it has quickly grown to encompass a whole host of news services offering live updates and information.

Snapchat has also been trying to figure out how best to make money. Hence the microtransaction that has helped mostly mobile games like Candy Crush stay very much afloat.

So, what do you think? Will you pay a buck to see them snaps again?
