The last time I checked, Marie Curie was not famous for her makeup.

Here is a picture of Marie Curie. Whom is known for discovering the elements: polonium and radium. Not for some stupid makeup filter created by Snapchat. Photo creds to public domain.

To celebrate National Women’s Day, Snapchat honored Marie Curie by adding a filter dedicated to her makeup. Funnily enough, Marie was famous for being a physicist whom won a Nobel Piece Prize, not for caking her face in Mac cosmetics.

People are upset with this ridiculousness, and they have every right to be. Twitter user Amy Brown tweeted, “The Marie Curie Snapchat lens makes your face thinner and gives you full eye makeup. Thank GOD, wouldn’t want to be an un-hot scientist.” Props to Amy Brown. Even if someone had the cure for cancer, in today’s society, people would not care if the person didn’t “look good”.

If this nationally recognized day is supposed to honor women for their accomplishments, Snapchat sure to heck failed to honor Marie. Curie was most famous for discovering the elements polonium and radium and all she gets in her filter was a whole lot of face makeup and some beakers and flasks. Curie literally gave her life for what she accomplished, because she was exposed to radium for so long it poisoned her.

She passed away only two years after accepting the Nobel Peace Prize.

I’m sorry but I would be rolling in my grave if I somehow heard about this disgrace. Not only did Snapchat not give Marie Curie her well deserved credit, this is not the first time Snapchat has shown the correct respect to famous people. Twitter user Asma commented,” So @Snapchat capitalizing on 4/20 with a Bob Marley filter. Stay classy.”

Nice job Snapchat for not acknowledging Marie Curie’s success. ┬áNice job Snapchat for the misleading information about a women who dedicated her life to science. You get an F.
