Faceswapping On Snapchat Almost Landed This Guy In Jail

We all think we're the bees knees, don't we, faceswapping ourselves with celebrities on Snapchat and doing crap impressions of them.

Well bad news, folks. Taking one of these videos might leave you getting fucked by the long dick of the law.

Indian comedian Tanmay Bhat found this out last week when posted a faceswap story onto his Facebook using the faces of two Indian celebrities. He was talking about politics and feminism.

He faceswapped with singer Lata Mangeshkar and retired cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.


Surprisingly, some people on social media were offended by the video.

But people of relevance were also offended and shocked, like the police, who later became involved.

A spokesperson for Mumbai police told the New York Times that the police had approached Facebook to delete it.


Speaking about there being any legal precedent for something like this, Robert Amies, part of the Independent's legal team, said:

"I don't think face swapping per say would be a problem. It all depends on the context."


What do you all think?

Was the Snapchat story just a bit of harmless fun or straight-up fucking unacceptable?
