Teenager sues Snapchat for being 'obscene'

Remember being a teenager? It was all hormones and sulking, wasn't it? While most teens are into underage drinking and smashing some windows for no good reason, some of them are in fact prudish grasses.

While that's fine, one such teen is such a prude, and such a massive snitch, that they're willing to sue Snapchat.

Honestly, couldn't they be doing something more fun like playing video games or listening to their music at skin melting volumes?

The young person from California has decided that Snapchat is far too mucky for teenagers, and is suing, alleging "willful and intentional violations of the Communications Decency Act", specifically for "intentionally exposing minors to harmful, offensive, prurient, and sexually offensive content, without warning minors or their parents that they would be exposed to such explicit content."

Again, they could be messing around on street corners with their mates, or spending their pocket money on Jordans.

The teen who apparently enjoys 'history and science' put in their complaint when they saw a Buzzfeed post in the Discover tab, and in the filing, it says that the tab showed "innocent pictures from John's favorite Disney movies were perverted into obscene sexual images and text."

The 'John' in question would be 'John Doe'.

Then, the teenager promptly showed their mum, who was in turn "shocked and horrified", when they should have probably shrugged and vowed to get a life.

A Snapchat spokesperson said: "We haven't been served with a complaint in this lawsuit, but we are sorry if people were offended. Our Discover partners have editorial independence, which is something that we support."

So there you go. Sounds like John Doe was the only person under 18 who signed-up for Snapchat thinking they wouldn't see at least one bumcheek. That, or they got caught looking at mucky stuff on Snapchat and got caught by their mum and threw everyone under the bus to try and cover their tracks.

Wuss.
