Woman Uses New Snapchat Filter To Prank Girlfriend And It Backfires Horribly

You'd think Snapchat filters would be the epitome of harmless fun, but it turns out they can backfire quite badly.

Sasha found this out the hard way after pranking her girlfriend Leona. The 21-year-old used a filter to make her look like a different girl and sent the picture to her with the caption: "In your girlfriend's bed."

The couple have been together almost a year and Sasha was sure Leona would see it as the joke it was, however, she did not respond as light-heartedly as Sasha had hoped.

Messaging Sasha, Leona said: "I ain't coming tomorrow"

Sasha said: "Huh?"

Leona replied: "Enjoy your night with that girl in your bed"

Sasha said: "What. What girl."

Leona replied: "Goodnight Sasha."

Sasha said: "I'm by myself."

Leona replied: "Don't speak to me again."

Oh dear... that got out of hand fast.

Leona went on to explain that she had received a snap from another girl in her bed (which she obviously hadn't), and Sasha pleaded with her to answer a FaceTime call so she could prove she was on her own.

However, by this point, Leona was in no mood to speak to her girlfriend - even if it was a joke.

Leona said: "And if this is a joke you can enjoy a weekend on your own."

Sasha subsequently begged Leona to not be angry, but it all fell on deaf ears because Leona blocked her... So be very careful with filters folks.

Fortunately, Leona soon saw sense.

Speaking to LADbible, Sasha said: "I thought she'd know the picture was me to be honest cause I thought it was obviously but apparently not.

"She made up with me afterwards so all is good now."

But Sasha and Leona aren't the only couple to fall foul of a Snapchat filter-based misunderstanding.

Posting on Facebook, Ryan Hill described how he used a filter that 'makes you look like a girl' on a photo of himself, and sent it to his poor unsuspecting girlfriend... along with the caption 'I have your bf's t-shirt on'.

Understandably pissed off, she replied saying: "Are you fucking serious. Don't even bother coming here after work."

Continuing the wind-up, he responded by saying: "Why what was it?"

His poor girlfriend replied: "Why the fuck is another girl got your t-shirt on. You're getting blocked."

Basically then, if you don't wanna get blocked by your partner, don't do filter-based pranks.
