As popular as it may be… it’s also the reason for new rumors/jokes – ie, Snapchat gimmicks must use Amber cried last week Here as a booth for blueprints.
While speculation is rampant, what we’re here to tell you is…a Snap spokesperson told TMZ there’s no fact at all, the lens was inspired by Amber Heard, and if you think about it logically – it just doesn’t add up.
