However, the Giphy support is now alive on Snapchat and will surely delight the users.

To get its lost status back Giphy left no stone unturned and the series of events were reported like this by Giphy:

“A user discovered an offensive GIF sticker in our library, and we immediately removed it per our content guidelines.

After investigation of the incident, this sticker was available due to a bug in our content moderation filters specifically affecting GIF stickers.  We have fixed the bug and have re-moderated all of the GIF stickers in our library.

The GIPHY staff is also further reviewing every GIF sticker by hand and should be finished shortly.

We take full responsibility for these recent events and sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended.”

It’s worth mentioning that Giphy stores its database from the GIFs that users upload but users are not allowed to post offensive or abusive content on the platform. On the racist GIF issue, Giphy echoed, the GIF was only available due to a bug in the content moderation feature. The company is trying hard to get its lost status back that it is sure to have in a few days’ time owing to the popularity it has enjoyed in the past.
